Creamy Mac & Cheese

Macaroni & Cheese is a comfort food for me. I have played around with different recipes for years before coming up with the this one. It has been a family favorite for over 15 years. My family prefers it baked.


4 T Butter
4 T Flour
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Onion Powder
2 cups Milk
1 tsp Minced Onion
1 cup American Cheese
1 cup Sharp Cheese
1 cup Colby Jack Cheese
6 cups Cooked Macaroni


Cook your macaroni while preparing sauce. In a large stock pot melt butter. Combined flour, pepper, salt, and onion powder. Whisk into butter creating a paste. Whisk in milk and garlic, continue whisking until it starts to thicken. Add cheeses and whisk until all the cheese is mixed in and smooth. Stir in macaroni.

Baked option:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Pour mac & cheese into a casserole dish and top with 1 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs. Bake for 30 minutes.

It also bakes well in a dutch oven.
