DIRECTIONS

  • Cook and drain macaroni; rinse with cold water.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter or margarine either in a pot on the stove or in a microwavable container in the microwave.
  • Stir in flour.
  • Add milk and cook, stirring frequently (5 - 6 minutes in the microwave, stirring every minute) until thickened.
  • Add seasonings and continue cooking on stove or in microwave for 1 - 2 minutes longer.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups cheese and stir until melted (may need to be cooked for 1 more minute to melt the cheese).
  • Grease a large casserole dish and pour in macaroni noodles and cheese sauce, stirring to mix. My dad always layered the noodles and sauce, so that's an option, too.
  • Sprinkle the breadcrumbs on top, followed by the remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
  • Bake at 375 for 25 - 30 minutes, or until mixture is heated through and the cheese on top is completely melted.
