  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2 quart casserole dish. Place the bread crumbs into a small bowl and mix well with the melted butter; set aside.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain, then place into prepared casserole dish.
  3. While the pasta is cooking, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the minced onion and cook until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the flour, pepper, salt, and dry mustard until incorporated, then pour in the milk and bring to a simmer. Simmer, stirring constantly until the milk has thickened, about 10 minutes. Take the milk off of the heat and stir in the Cheddar cheese until melted. Pour cheese sauce over the macaroni, then sprinkle evenly with buttered bread crumbs.
  5. Bake until the top is golden and bubbly, about 20 minutes.

This is the same recipe I have been using for years, and I adore it. I don't add the bread crumbs to it, and I prefer it that way. The last time I made it I didn't have any dry mustard, and it...

I have tried many mac and cheese recipes trying to find the right "cheesiness" and flavor. This, by far, is my favorite!!! I added 1 cup of shredded colby cheese to the pasta (not the sauce) to...

My hubby and I enjoyed this version of mac and cheese. I could have eaten it after adding the cheese sauce to the pasta and not baking. It would have been much creamier. However, my husband li...

Not sure what went wrong but mine came out very grainy. It did have a nice flavor behind it but it did not get eaten because of the texture. Any ideas?

I have made this dish many times and love it. I like to use strong, white cheddar and top it off with finely crushed Ritz crackers and sliced tomatoes. It makes a wonderful side dish or a main...
