This is another family favorite. It has to be the butter and bouillon! It's not a healthy treat so use wisely and enjoy!

P.S. The cheese amount is not precise. When I say "cube," I mean the normal size blocks you buy at the grocery store. You can adjust the amount of cheese to your liking. Also, 4 cubes of bouillon is for the small squares of bouillon. If you buy the bigger sizes, just use two.

1 pkg

3/4

3 to 4 Tbsp
flour
1 stick
butter, softened
4
bouillon cubes, chicken or beef
1/4 c
dried, minced onions
1/4

1/4
cube mild cheddar
1 to 2 c
milk
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Turn the oven on to 350 degrees.
2
Boil macaroni until done. Drain and rinse with hot water for mixing with cheese immediately.

Mix the two 3/4 cubes of shredded cheese with the macaroni in a 9x13 pan.
4
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with the bouillon cubes and onions until smooth.

6
When the rue is thickened and smooth, add 1 cup milk, mixing while heating until thickened. Add the rue mixture to the macaroni and cheese and mix well.
