Macaroni and Cheese, Sandy, my version

Megan Stewart


This is my alteration of the old macaroni and cheese Sandy made when the kids were little. I made it, doubling the recipe to fit in a 9x13, and my hubby loved it. Okay, so now, over a month later, he says he prefers his mother's old recipe! GGGRRR

How to Make Macaroni and Cheese, Sandy, my version


  1. Oven to 350 degrees. Cook pasta 3 minutes and drain well. Melt butter in medium saucepan. Stir in flour, mustard, salt and pepper. Gradually add milk and cook smooth.stir constantly until it bubbles, lower heat and simmer 1 minute. Stir in cheese until melted. Combine with pasta and then put into a 9x13 sprayed with Pam. Top with the crushed croutons and bake 25 minutes.
  2. I like tuna with my macaroni and cheese, so I put some on the side, and it was amazing!
