Delicious homemade mac and cheese for one person

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease an oven-proof soup crock or 1 cup baking dish.
  2. Fill a small saucepan with water, and bring to a boil. Stir in the macaroni; boil until cooked but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well, and reserve.
  3. In the same saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour, salt, pepper, onion powder, and milk; whisk until smooth. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and whisk in 1/3 cup cheese, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. Stir in the cooked macaroni. Spoon the macaroni and cheese into the prepared dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake, uncovered, until the cheese is melted and the macaroni is heated through, about 10 minutes.

What a great recipe! I tripled the recipe using 3/4 cup for the noodles, for the two of us. We had just a little bit left over. I will definitely make again.

I made two; one for me and one for dh. Even though he asked where the rest was, this was the perfect amount as a side to our meal. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.
