DIRECTIONS

  • Cut cheeses into cubes and set aside.
  • Cook the macaroni and start the white sauce.
  • To make the white sauce:
  • Melt butter or margarine; then blend in the flour, salt and pepper.
  • Cook until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly.
  • To get a perfect white sauce, remember to combine the melted butter and flour thoroughly to get a smooth paste without bumps.
  • Gradually add the 4 cups of milk, about 1/4 cup at a time, thoroughly blending to a smooth consistency after each addition.
  • Stir constantly while heating to avoid burning.
  • In a large bowl pour in cooked macaroni, then pour in the white sauce.
  • Pour cubes of cheese on top(I always save out some of the cheese to place on top)and mix with a large spoon until completely mixed together.
  • Butter a 5-quart baking dish.
  • Pour the macaroni and cheese mixture into this.
  • Pour the 1/2 cup milk over the mixture, making sure it seeps down the sides and middle.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes.
  • Toast the bread and crumble on top of macaroni.
  • After putting bread on mixture, bake an additional 15-45 minutes.
  • Note: If you do not like your macaroni and cheese so cheesy, you do not have to use the first 3 cheeses.
  • You may choose your own combination of cheeses and you may use more or less of each of the cheeses given.
  • Occasionally this will look curdled or be dry. I don't know what causes this but it happens.
