I made a couple Macaroni and Cheese dishes for my friend Cooter’s Birthday party. This is a recipe for the Basic Creamy Macaroni and Cheese.
- 1 package of Macaroni pasta
- 2 quarts water
- 1/2 stick of butter
- 1/2 package of cream cheese
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1 package – 16 – 20 oz. of cheddar cheese
- 2 tbsp. flour
- Salt and Pepper
- Bread crumbs (for top)
Boil the Macaroni until done and place aside in a baking pan.
In a sauce pan, heat butter, milk and cream cheese with salt and pepper. Once that is heated, add cheddar cheese and continue to stir constantly over a medium heat making sure not to burn the cheese. Add seasoning – salt and pepper, maybe cayenne and Italian herbs if desired and then last the flour.
Remove the cheese from the heat and pour over the macaroni in the baking dish. Cover with bread crumbs and put into the oven for 15-20 minutes at 350 or until golden.
