Baked Macaroni and Cheese

I have an arsenal of comfort food recipes.  But really, there are those days it just has to be macaroni and cheese.  Saturday was one of those days, so I pulled out this recipe.  I like mine garnished with fresh chopped tomatoes and jalapeños.  From January 2009

Baked Macaroni & Cheese

  • 12 oz elbow macaroni
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder  (about 2 shakes)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 oz shredded jack cheese
  • 4 oz crushed potato chips

large sauce pan, small sauce pan, large casserole dish

Bring water to boil in large sauce pan, add macaroni and cook according to package directions. In small sauce pan, melt butter, add flour, onion powder, salt & pepper blend well and then add milk. Stir constantly over medium heat until bubbly, add cheese, stir until melted. Drain macaroni, put into casserole dish, stir in cheese sauce, top with crushed chips and bake 20 minutes at 350°, until top is light brown and cheese is bubbly.
