Mac n' Cheese- fool proof recipes needed!

sds | Apr 2, 2007 04:33 PM

For some reason, my homemade mac n' cheese NEVER comes out right. Perhaps I dont cook the roux long enough? Basically, here is what I do:

Make a roux (butter, flour-cook for a min or 2) + milk+ some nutmeg, garlic, pepper, salt
add in the cheddar cheese (or gouda)
add cooked noodles.

This always ends up grainy tasting and not that creamy, comforting taste I'm looking for.

Any suggestions? What am I doing wrong here?
