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…

  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.

  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.
