This has been a solidly tough week , so to make myself feel warm and lovey inside . I made this ....
Come on, Can't you just smell the cheddar goodness.
We really need "scratch the screen & sniff " here!
Homemade Mac & Cheese
5 Tbls. Butter
5 Tbls. Flour
1 Knorr chicken bouillon cube
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
2 1/2 cups Milk
3 cups shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese(reserve 1/2 cup)
1 lb. Pasta
4 slices white bread
Boil a large pot of water with 1 or 2 tsp. of salt. Cook pasta only until al dente'. Drain. In a saucepan
melt butter over medium heat. Add flour stirring until well blended. Continue stirring until bubbly and a
blond in color. 3 to 5 min. Add bouillon cube, stir until melted. Stir in milk. Cook until your sauce is
thickened.Add nutmeg and pepper to taste. Stir in cheese until melted and well blended. I use a whisk.
In a buttered casserole dish pour 1/2 the sauce 1/2 the pasta . Stir well . Repeat.
Cut crusts off white bread. Pulse in food processor until crumbs.
Sprinkle remaining cheese on top of casserole and then sprinkle bread crumbs,
Bake at 375 until bubbly and brown around the edges.
p.s. I have been making it this way for years. It's the first time I have written out the recipe.
I hope it makes sense.
