    BBCFan's Note:

    DO NOT OMIT THE HOT PEPPER HABENEROS OTHERWISE, THIS IS NOT MY RECIPE YOU ARE REVIEWING AND SHOULD NOT BE REVIEWED PLEASE. THANK YOU. I don't like dry, baked, bland Mac & cheese. If I'm going to stuff my self with fat and carbs in the same meal - IT BETTER BE WORTH IT! I sincerely think my mac & cheese is better than my mothers because I don't bake all the flavor out of it and dry it out with bread-crumbs. I never understood the point of bread-crumbs on Mac & Cheese anyway. So, please: NO BREADCRUMBS!!!!!!! Thank you :-)

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 1

    Yield:

    Serving

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1/4 cup flour (I always or only use 'Bob's Red Mill Soy Flour' to significantly cut the carbs and boost protein.)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 2 cups milk
    • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
    • 1/2 cup diced ham
    • 1/2 cup diced peas
    • 1 cup chopped habeneros with seeds
    • 1/2 cup Tabasco sauce
    • 8 ounces dry whole wheat elbow macaroni, cooked according to package directions (to make it lower carbs, use 'Dreamfields Pasta' (In the black box)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Part 1:.
    2. 2
      Melt butter in medium saucepan.
    3. 3
      Stir in flour, salt, mustard, cayenne and pepper until smooth.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and gradually stir in milk until smooth.
    5. 5
      Stirring constantly, cook over medium heat until thickened (about 10 minutes).
    6. 6
      Add ham & peas and Haberneros and Hot Sauce.
    7. 7
      Blend together well.
    8. 8
      Remove from heat.
    9. 9
      Stir in 1 1/2 cups cheese until melted.
    10. 10
      ******************** This is where I END my recipe - at the MAXIMUM, Oooey, gooey, yummy, melty goodness. But SOME people insist I go further. As long as there are no bread crumbs involved, I'll compromise and continue.
    11. 11
      Part 2:.
    12. 12
      Combine cheese mixture with macaroni in greased 2 quart casserole.
    13. 13
      Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
    14. 14
      Bake in 375 degree oven for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
    15. 15
      Like I said, if I'm making this for myself - I only do Part 1 and I strongly suggest everyone give it a try that way too. You don't know what you're missing!
