Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

30 Min

Ingredients

1 medium
onion, diced
1 stick
butter
2 c
butter crakers, crushed (I use Keebler Club)
1 tsp
pepper
1 lb
macaroni, elbow
1 1/2 c
milk
2 pkg
Cracker Barrel Vermont Chedder Cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large pot, cook macaroni according to manufacturers directions.
2
While macaroni is cooking, melt butter in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.
3
Add diced onion and cook till translucent/clear, being careful not to brown onion.
4
When onion is translucent/clear, remove from heat and add cracker crumbs and stir.
5
Reduce heat to low, return pan to stove, add milk and stir.
6
To cracker an milk mixture, add cheese that has been cut into small cubes (or you can shred it, allowing for faster melting).
7
Stir constantly (so that it does not burn) until cheese is thoroughly melted and incorporated in to a smooth mixture.
8
Remove macaroni from heat and drain. Do not rinse.
9
Carefully combine cheese mixture and macaroni together.
10
Serve as is or, if you are like me and like a crunchy top, transfer the mixture to a buttered baking dish, top with more buttered, crushed, cracker crumbs and bake uncovered in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 1/2 hour.
11
Be prepared, you will never make macaroni and cheese any other way again!!!!
