Baked Macaroni and Cheese

"This is only one my family wants, a deliciously creamy cheese sauce with an old-fashioned bread cube topping. I triple the bread crumb topping as there never seems to be enough of that!"

    Very good. I used 1 lb. of processed cheese cut into small cubes, plus several handfuls of shredded cheddar cheese. I also used 2 T. of flour when making the roux. The texture of the finished dish tasted a little grainy to me, not smooth and creamy - but that may have been from the cheddar cheese. The flavor was excellent, though. Made for ZWT4.

    Very nice, family friendly recipe that both my girls enjoyed. I wasn't sure when to add the onion so I zapped it for a couple of minutes in the microwave with a bit of butter and then added it when I stirred through the sauce. Next time I would probably use a bit more cheese.
