    Chef Louisa's Note:

    This took years to make mac & cheese like "Nan" used to make. I finally got it right by accident (being low on the cheese & decreasing the amount). How funny it is when I got it right by being low in stock on the main ingredient. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family & I do. I make this all year round and it's worth the effort. It's a big hit at Church pot lucks too.

    Serves: 4



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Part I - Cook elbow macaroni according to directions and drain the water. Place cooked macaroni in a medium glass bowl.
    2. 2
      Part II - The roux.
    3. 3
      In a large skillet melt the butter over medium heat. Add the 2 TBS white flour and quickly stir to prevent lumping and make a roux this way.
    4. 4
      Add whole milk 1/4 cup at a time stirring constantly. You may need a little bit more milk if it is a low humidity day.
    5. 5
      Part III - The Cheese Sauce.
    6. 6
      Cut the Velveeta into cubes & add the cheese cubes to the roux and keep stirring constantly until the Velveeta is melted. Keep stirring and add the spices to the cheese Sauce.
    7. 7
      Immediately pour the cheese sauce onto the macaroni and gently stir. You may serve immediately & enjoy! :).

      This is the Real Deal - just what I was craving. Good old fashioned comfort food, nothing "foo foo". I added 1/2 tsp dry mustard and 1/8 tsp powdered onion and had to make myself just walk away to keep from standing at the counter and eating it all before I could get it to the table for dinner! Thanks for posting.
