Cracker Barrel Macaroni and Cheese

Recipe by Mel T
READY IN: 40mins




  • In a saucepan, melt butter over medium low heat; add the flour a little bit at a time whilst whisking to make a roux.
  • Heat the broth.
  • Next, add the broth to the roux, and stir with the whisk; this will thicken as it heats.
  • Add a little cream, watching for the desired consistency.
  • Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a separate pot; add salt and pasta.
  • In the other pot, add shredded cheese a 1/4 of a cup at a time whilst stirring with a spoon. When you have about one cup of cheese in you can add the rest of the cheese.
  • Cook the pasta until al dente; strain and combine with the cheese sauce.
  • Pour the mix into a casserole and bake uncovered in a preheated oven set to 350°F for about 10 minutes.
  • Keep an eye on the mac & cheese, you want it to brown around the edges and in patches on top.
  • Remove and let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
