Baked Mac & Cheese

This recipe came from

Baked Mac & Cheese


1 (8 oz.) pkg macaroni noodles
4 T butter
4 T flour
1 cup milk
1 cup cream
1/2 t salt
pepper, to taste
2 cups good quality shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup buttered breadcrumbs

Preheat oven to 400. Cook and drain macaroni noodles, set aside.

In a large saucepan, melt butter. Add flour mixed with salt and pepper using a whisk until well blended.

Pour milk and cream in gradually; stirring constantly. Bring to a boiling point and boil 2 minutes (stirring constantly). Reduce heart and cook (stirring constantly) 10 minutes.

Add shredded cheddar little by little and simmer an additional 5 minutes, or until cheese melts. turn off flame.

Add macaroni to the saucpan and toss to coat with the cheese sauce.

Transfer macaroni to a buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs.

Bake 20 minutes until top is golden brown

(This can be frozen for later use in a zip lock bag. After mixing macaroni with cheese sauce, allow to cool to room temperature in bag and then add to freezer. Take out of the freezer the night before it is to be used and allow to reach room temp. Then put in buttered dish and sprinkle with crumbs. Bake for 20 to 30 min.)

We served this with ham steak, green beans and peaches.

Our Review: I was looking for a recipe that tasted like Golden Corral's mac & cheese that Brooke loves. Brooke said this one tasted a lot like it. This was very tasty to all of us! It is time consuming because of all the constant stirring. This will go into our recipe box and made again.
