Directions

  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.

This is comfort food, pure and simple. I scaled the recipe back to 2 servings and added 1/2 tsp dry mustard to the white sauce. I had no bread crumbs so I just topped it with shredded cheese. Delicious!

This was a very basic but tasty recipe. I scaled it back to 2. servings. I made it as a side dish for our family of 4 and still had about 1/2 left.

I was disappointed I wanted macaroni and cheese and got macaroni soup.
