Today I am sharing my recipe for Baked
Mac n'Cheese. I was looking for something to make for Danny, who is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, and decided to make this Baked Mac n' Cheese for with the hamburgers that I was making the other night. I made it with egg noodles since I didn't have any elbow noodles on hand, but you could use any kind of a noodle. Next week we will be posting Vince's recipe for Mac n' Cheese. He's showing me how to make it this Saturday. I'm pretty excited, I love cooking with my kids. I think Danny is going to be making homemade Fish and Chips for a post also in the next week. So even though Charly is very pregnant and doesn't want to cook a lot right now, her brothers are pitching in with recipes.
Homemade Mac n' Cheese
1 large bag egg noodles
24 oz velveeta cheese cubed
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cups cream or milk
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Cook noodles according to the directions on the bag. Then drain and set aside in the pan.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray nonstick cooking spray in a 9 x 13 casserole dish.
In a large sauce pan melt butter and then stir in flour.
Cook flour over medium heat for about 2 minutes.
Then slowly add the cream, salt, and pepper.
Next, add the cheese and stir constantly until cheese has melted.
Pour the cheese sauce over the noodles and mix well.
Pour into the prepared casserole dish and bake for 30 to 40 minutes.
Makes 12 to 15 servings.
