    We were having one of those days that no one could figure out what to have for supper. After careful thought and a lot of undecidedness we settled on this Simple Baked Mac and Cheese Recipe. There is not a lot of prep time and it is a very easy recipe. I am not a vegetarian by any means, so I decided to cook up some Brats along with the macaroni and cheese. It’s just a habit I guess, but I do like to have some kind of meat or fish with dinner. If you like macaroni and cheese give this recipe a try; it’s delicious. Enjoy

    Ingredients

    1 (8 ounce) package elbow macaroni

    4 tablespoons butter

    4 tablespoons flour

    1 cup milk

    1 cup cream

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Black pepper, to taste

    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

    3/4 cup breadcrumbs, buttered

     

    Directions

    1.  Preheat oven to 400°F.

    2.  Cook macaroni till tender

    3.  In a large saucepan melt the butter,  add the flour, salt and pepper and mix till well blended. It will take on a paste consistency.

    4. Gradually pour in the milk and cream, bring to a boil; cook on medium heat stirring constantly,  until mixture thickens. This takes about 2 minutes

    5. Reduce the heat, and add the 2 cups of cheddar cheese to the milk and cream mixture, mix until cheese is melted and well blended.

    6. Mix the cheese sauce with the macaroni and place in a greased casserole dish. Top with the breadcrumbs; bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes, or until crumbs are golden brown.
