DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Shred the cheddar cheese or chop into very small cubes. *Shredded cheese will melt faster than cubed cheese, but it's also messier and takes longer to do. It's up to you.*.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add flour, salt and pepper off of the heat. Gradually add the milk and stir continuously for about 10 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.
  • Add cheese and melt.
  • Meanwhile, boil the macaroni for about 5 minutes. Pour macaroni into a glass casserole dish and then pour cheese sauce over. Stir until macaroni is coated.
  • Sift bread crumbs over the top of the macaroni.
  • Bake about 30 minutes or until the bread crumb crust is crispy.
