How to Make Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Cook and drain macaroni and place in a buttered 1 1/2 quart casserole. Blend onion and cheese with white sauce and pour over cooked macaroni.
    Sprinkle with buttered crumbs and paprika. Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes.

    Melt butter at 200-212°F in saucepan, microwave or double boiler.
    Add flour to butter and whisk well to blend. Gradually stir in milk, whisking constantly until smooth. Allow to cook over medium-low heat until sauce simmers and thickens to desired consistency. Add salt, to taste. If you prefer a richer sauce, use 2 tbsp. flour and 2 tbsp. butter.
