Mac N Cheese for six

Beth M.


When I make this I always use whole milk,good cheddar cheese and sometimes another kind of cheese for variety like Gouda or Pepper Jack. The casserole starts with a white sauce and I add the grated cheese or small cubes of cheese. For a bit of flavor I like to add powdered mustard, salt and pepper; and I use flavored bread crumbs on top with bits of butter so it will brown nicely.
Tonight we're not having any meat just this. There are corn muffins if desired and a salad.
