Mac & cheese was always one of my go to dinners when all 4 kids were at home. Now it is one of the grandchildrens’ favorite. Here is my recipe, not fancy, but very comforting.
Macaroni & cheese
1 lb box of macaroni, cooked to al dente.
3 T butter
3 T flour
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 C milk
1/2 lb velveeta, cut into chunks
2 C shredded mild cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350
In large plastic bowl(the largest & tallest that will fit into your microwave, when the sauce boils, it will come up & you want a deep bowl to prevent a boilover) melt butter in microwave, whisk in flour & salt , then whisk in milk. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, whisk, microwave 2 minutes, whisk again,repeat until sauce is thick. Add Velveeta, stir until Velveeta is melted. Add cooked macaroni,stir to combine, add shredded cheese. Pour into greased( use butter) 9×13 baking dish, bake 3-35 minutes, until mac & cheese is bubbling & the edges start to brown.
