Creamy Baked Mac n Cheese



Yes….another Mac N Cheese recipe…you gotta problem with that?!?!?! (he he he) Love me some mac n cheese. Always trying a new recipe…and this one is da-bomb-diggity!! Had to share….DSC_0015









Get out your food processor to make quick work of shredding the cheese. Just a note here…I know you are tempted to buy the pre-shredded cheese. But did you know there is cellulose on that cheese? That is what prevents it from all sticking together into one big mess ball o cheese. So for this recipe…go ahead and shred your own cheese. Cause I like to stay away from plastic in my mac n cheese….Seriously the cheese will melt like butta’….oh yummmmm!

You can make this ahead and bake it when you want to serve. Just a thought ;)









    How to make:
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Cook and drain macaroni according to package directions; set aside.
  • In a large saucepan melt butter.
  • Add flour mixed with salt and pepper, using a whisk to stir until well blended.
  • Pour milk and cream in gradually; stirring constantly.
  • Bring to boiling point and boil 2 minutes (stirring constantly).
  • Reduce heat 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 saucepan and toss to coat with the cheese sauce.
  • Transfer macaroni to a buttered baking dish.
  • Sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
  • Bake 20 minutes until the top is golden brown.
  • (You can also freeze this recipe in zip-lock bags for later use – once you have mixed the macaroni along with the cheese sauce allow to cool to room temperature before adding to your freezer – I generally pull it out the night before and allow macaroni and cheese to reach room temperature; I then add the macaroni and cheese to a buttered baking dish, sprinkle with bread crumbs and then bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until golden brown on top and bubbling.
