Mom’s Macaroni and Cheese


Mac and Cheese.

Gooey, crispy, lovely.

Yup. That sounds about right.

ALSO, I’m not saying you should eat this every day.


You’ll die.

From too much FLAVOR!! 😉

Please note that you can make this lower fat by using reduced fat milk and cheese, but if you’re gonna go there, GO THERE.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 4 cups shredded Cheddar Cheese (I used Vermont sharp white cheddar)
  • 1 lb plus 1 cup macaroni
  • dry mustard, to taste
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • ½ cup seasoned panko
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Boil your macaroni in a large pot of salted boiling water. Drain and set aside.
  2. In the same large pot, melt your three tablespoons of butter and whisk in the flour for one minute. Add all the milk, salt, pepper, and dried mustard. Whisk until the mixture becomes thick, about five minutes.
  3. Stir in the cheese. Then, stir in the macaroni. Pour the entire thing into a 9x13 baking dish. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, mix your melted butter and panko together.
  5. Sprinkle the panko over the mac and cheese.
  6. Throw in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and crispy. Serve right away!
