Ready In:
1 cup




  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease an oven-proof soup crock or 1 cup baking dish.
  • Fill a small saucepan with water, and bring to a boil. Stir in the macaroni; boil until cooked but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well, and reserve.
  • In the same saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour, salt, pepper, onion powder, and milk; whisk until smooth. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and whisk in 1/3 cup cheese, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. Stir in the cooked macaroni. Spoon the macaroni and cheese into the prepared dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon cheddar cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, until the cheese is melted and the macaroni is heated through, about 10 minutes.

    What a great recipe! I tripled the recipe using 3/4 cup for the noodles, for the two of us. We had just a little bit left over. I will definitely make again.

    Thank you Annacia, you were so correct. This is an awesome recipe, quick and easy to make with terrific results. Beautiful creamy, cheesy macaroni, what a great comfort dish. I made two; one for me and one for dh. Even though he asked where the rest was, this was the perfect amount as a side to our meal. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe. Made for Spring Pac 2014.

    Yum! I really enjoyed this for dinner tonight with a kale salad. It came together easily and was just the right amount. Thanks!

    This is surprisingly good. It real, honest to goodness, mac and cheese! I made it as lunch for DH yesterday and he felt that he had received a real treat. I can't disagree with him after taste testing for myself. Easy and delicious, without leftovers, what else could ask? Made for PAC, Spring 2014.
