I was given the task of making Macaroni & Cheese for a birthday celebration at work for our supervisor...and Mac & Cheese is his favorite meal from childhood. Oh boy, I needed to find something much better than Kraft for this one! Started reading recipes online and found this one for "Old Fashioned" Mac & Cheese on Allrecipes.com It was a success, and I was told by several people that it was the best Mac & Cheese they'd eaten.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

2 c
uncooked macaroni noodles
4 Tbsp
butter, unsalted
2 Tbsp
flour
2 c
milk
1/4
onion, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 lb
processed cheese food
1/4 lb
shredded cheddar cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2
Prepare the elbow macaroni according to package directions.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Stir in the flour until a cream colored paste forms. Then pour in the milk and stir constantly until this comes to a hard boil, then stir for 1 more minute. Remove from heat and set aside.
4
When the macaroni is cooked, spread 1/2 of it into the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13-inch baking dish. Then layer 1/2 of the grated onion, 1/2 of the salt and pepper and 1/2 of each of the cheeses. Repeat this one more time: macaroni, onion, salt and pepper and cheeses, and then pour the reserved white sauce over all. Top off with small pats of butter to taste.
5
Cover and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes.
