There is another recipe on Zaar for this, but the ingredients are different. Let's see if this one is even close to the awesomeness of Cracker Barrel's! Received by way of email this morning: From Chef Tom: "Nothing reminds me of old fashioned home cooking more than Cracker Barrel. This Macaroni and Cheese is just like Mom used to make!"


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In saucepan, melt butter. Blend in flour, salt and mustard. Add milk, stir constantly until sauce thickens a little. Add 1 1/2 cups cheese, heat until melted, stirring. Remove from heat.
  3. Meanwhile, cook macaroni as directed; drain. Combine with sauce in a buttered 2 quart casserole; top with remaining cheese, then buttered bread crumbs and sprinkle with paprika.
  4. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until nicely browned.
