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!

How to Make I've been told it's the "Best Mac & Cheese"

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Prepare the elbow macaroni according to package directions.
  3. 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.
