Macaroni and Cheese – Honest to gosh homemade from scratch


Homemade 7 Cheese MacNCheese 7 Cheese Baked Homemade MAC-N-Cheese

 I  think if there is one universal dish that most kids (2-100) like, it is macaroni and cheese.  Servings: 4-6 (depending on appetite)

What you’ll need:

  • 8 oz Macaroni – elbows, bow-ties, whatever your kids like
  • 2-3 quart pot
  • 2 cups of Cheese – I buy one of the blends depending on the taste you’re going after
  • Six Italian Blend
  • Small mixing bowl
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbs Milk

OPTIONAL FOR BAKING INTO CASSEROLE:

  • 2 Tbs Butter
  • 1/2 cup Sharp Cheddar grated
  • One casserole baking dish (Pyrex, Corning, etc.)
  • Paprika to garnish

What you will do:

  1. Prepare noodles according to box and drain
  2. Keep noodles covered between steps to keep them hot
  3. Stir in butter and cover
  4. In a separate small bowl – mix egg and milk
  5. Add two large Tbs of the hot noodles (you are doing this to bring the egg mixture to noodle temperature and prevent curdling of milk)
  6. Mix egg mixture into noodles
  7. Add grated cheese and stir

You can serve at this point or continue to bake preparation:

  1. Set oven for 350F degrees
  2. Pour Macaroni and Cheese into casserole dish
  3. Sprinkle Sharp Cheddar grated cheese across top
  4. Bake 15 minutes or until cheese starts to brown slightly (you do not want burnt cheese)
  5. Sprinkle with Paprika and serve

This can be changed around with lots of Cheddar, milder cheeses, adding franks, onions, etc.   Experiment and ENJOY! b7-copyright-pic

That means don’t print as yours.
