Baked Mac and Cheese

Homemade mac and cheese? Yes, please!

I found this recipe on Allrecipes.

I changed things up a bit:


  • 8 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter + 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs


Cook the elbow macaroni according to package directions. In a saucepan, melt the 1/4 cup butter over low heat and add the flour (which makes a roux). Add the cheese, stirring often, until cheese is melted.

Pour the mixture over the macaroni and stir well. Spray a Pyrex or other baking casserole with Pam (or use butter) and pour the macaroni mixture in.

In the same saucepan or another skillet, melt the remaining butter and add the bread crumbs. This might be pasty. Crumble it over the macaroni mixture.

Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.
