Homemade Mac and Cheese

This is a macaroni dish my family has been making for years. It is my favorite comfort food. Also, if you like a little bit of kick to your dishes, you can add a pinch of red pepper to the breadcrumb mixture at the end…

Instructions

  1. 1In a large stock pot, cook macaroni noodles until al dente. Set aside. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. 2In a large saute pan, melt 4 TBSP butter over medium-low heat.
  3. 3Add flour and mix until creamy.
  4. 4Next, add milk and softened cream cheese chunks. Stir until cream cheese is melted.
  5. 5Once cream cheese is melted, add Country Dijon Mustard and stir into mixture.
  6. 6Add 2 cups cheese. Stir until melted.
  7. 7Add, cooked macaroni noodles.
  8. 8Mix until covered with cheese mixture.
  9. 9Pour into a greased 9×13 oven proof baking dish.
  10. 10In a micorwavable dish, melt the additional 4 TBSP butter and add breadcrumbs. Combine until butter is absorbed. Add more melted butter if necessary.
