All American Cheese and Macaroni

All American Cheese and Macaroni




An old favorite with an upscale twist.


  1. Cook macaroni in boiling salted water according to package directions until barely al dente. Drain. In small saucepan, bring milk to a simmer. Remove from heat. In large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Blend in flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually stir in milk, whisking constantly, until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and mixture comes to a boil; cook and stir 1 minute. Blend in mustard, salt, pepper and cheeses. Stir over low heat until cheese is melted. In large bowl, combine macaroni and sauce. Spoon into buttered 9x13-inch glass baking dish. Combine crumbs with 2 tablespoons melted butter; sprinkle over macaroni. Bake, uncovered, in a preheated 350 F oven until light golden brown and bubbly (35-40 minutes). Serve immediately.
  2. Tip: May be served as an accompaniment to a meat entree. Spoon unbaked macaroni and cheese into individual ramekins. Top with crumbs. Bake as directed for 15-20 minutes.
