ingredients

directions

  • 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!

    I followed this recipe exactly... it was horrible. The flavor of the sauce is bland and floury ( i even added a little splash of paprika and ground mustard and pepper and couldn't ressurect this dish!)... Definetly not anything like the Cracker Barrel.

    No one in my house liked this one. The sauce was bland and slightly grainy textured. I followed the recipe exactly. Perhaps I went wrong when adding the cream as I added the entire 1/2 cup and had no idea what the "desired consistency" was.

    I loved it...tho it didnt do much for putting it in the oven....I have made it a few times sience and as long as you eat it right after you make it you won't be disappointed. If it sets for too long the sauce gets a little chunky....but good tho!

    Excellent roux recipe by adding the broth. I did not have so I used a boullion cube and a cup of water. I aslo did not havecolby cheese. So I used extra sharp 6 oz, 1/2 parmesan cheese and 2 slices of american. Added pepper to roux. This is a great base for hiomemade mac & cheese. Thanks Mel T
