  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes; drain.
  3. Melt 1/2 cup butter in a large pot over medium heat; stir flour into butter until smooth. Stream milk into the butter mixture while stirring; bring to a boil. Cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add Cheddar cheese in small batches, stirring each into the milk mixture and melting until adding the next. Add macaroni and stir to coat. Pour macaroni into prepared baking dish.
  5. Stir bread crumbs and melted butter together in a small bowl; sprinkle over the macaroni.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until the top is golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes.

As one of the other reviewers said, something was missing. My daughter suggested using different types of cheese and also adding bacon or ham. The possibility of adding sliced tomatoes at the en...

Made for Thanksgiving this year. My family liked this. I was not all that impressed. It needed something in the cheese mixture. I will try adding some type of spice or seasoning next time I make...
