Macaroni and cheese..

Anyone have a good recipe for homemade macaroni & cheese? Nothing jazzed up or funky, just a tasty, basic recipe will work. It's one of the few things dd will eat!!

Re: Macaroni and cheese..

I have 2 different recipes for it, one is kinda fancy-shmancy and a bit of work not to mention special ingredients, but its from Patti LaBelle, what do ya expect? LOL The basic one I make is easy and yummy!

1lb macaroni (or rotini, shells, etc) cooked per directions
1 can of Evap milk (I forget the oz, but its the bigger can)
1/2 C sour cream
2C cheddar cheese
a pinch of salt, pepper, nutmeg & ground mustard

After you drain noodles, return to pot and mix in sour cream. Add your evap milk, seasoning and cheese and stir until well combined and cheese is melted. Its super easy and super cheesey!! LOL

Oh, yummy, that sounds like a good superbowl meal if I ever heard one.. I like that it's not the kind that you definitely have to put in the oven. I just like to stir and serve!!!

Re: Macaroni and cheese..

I leave the tomato and bavon out for real basic-- always yummy.

Macaroni and Cheese

4 tbsp butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 tbsp. flour
2 tsp dry mustard
pepper and salt to taste
2 cups milk
12 oz sharp cheddar cheese cut into small chunks
1 lb. elbow macaroni cooked and drained
1 can tomato quarter or slices or two fresh tomatoes - sliced
1/2 lb bacon fried crisp and crumbled
1/4 cup bread crumbs
2 tbsp butter

1. For sauce melt the better in a saucepan and add onion. Cook until transparent. Add flour and mustard and cook a few minutes longer. Remove from heat and add milk. Stir until thick and smooth. Return to heat, add cheese and cook, stirring until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Mix cooked macaroni and cheese sauce in a casserole. Arrange tomatoes and bacon on top. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and top with 2 tablespoons of butter dots.

3. Bake uncovered in a 325-degree oven until bubbly and brown on top (about 30 minutes).

Re: Macaroni and cheese..

This may not be the healthiest, but this is how my fam. makes mac and cheese

Boil your noodles.
Layer in a casserole dish thin layer of noodles, layer of velveta, pats of butter....do this over and over until full. Poor a bit of milk over it and then cover and bake close to an hour on 350. Take off cover and bake a bit until top is golden. Make sure your top layer of noodles has a few slices of velveta laid over it.

Re: Macaroni and cheese..

We love this one- you can leave out the garlic and onion, but I think it makes it really tasty!

1/4 C butter
1/4 onion - chopped
1 clove garlic
1/4 C flour
2 C milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 C sharp chedder cheese
1/4 C parmesean cheese
7 oz cooked macaroni
seasoned breadcrumbs

sautee onion and garlic
combine flour milk to make a paste. When thick add salt. Add sharp chedder and stir until melted. Add parmesean and cooked macaroni.
Pour into casserole dish and sprinkle with left over parmesean and chedder. Top with seasoned bread crumbs. Cook at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Re: Macaroni and cheese..

I just boil & strain the mac.... then add cheese, milk, & butter (just eyeball it) ..... stir all together I add a little salt, DH adds pepper. We like this just fine. I always add less milk, then add more if needed.... same with the cheese. Easy to adjust for more or less.
