This homemade baked macaroni and cheese recipe beats the boxed kind any day of the week. For a divine main dish, stir in chopped cooked ham before baking, and then sprinkle top with chopped cooked bacon before serving.
I was unsure how mixing the flour/milk and adding the grated cheese separately would work out but it did and it was really yummy Mac and cheese. I used Panko breadcrumbs as they were all I had and they were excellent and crunchy. Super easy recipe with spectacular results!!!
Very good! The only difference I did was apply the melted butter about 15 mins. into cooking time on top. That helped the noodles not dry out on top as bad. I also used more cheese then the recipe calls for because we love cheese. I also only baked for 30 mins, opposed to the 45..I think that is what also causes it to dry out waaay too quickly.
This is a fantastic & easy recipe. I did tweak it a little as I think it was too plain for my husband & me. I sauteed a few strips of thick-cut bacon till crisp, then sauteed 1/2 C onion in the drippings. I added some good stone ground mustard to the flour & milk-shake. Soooo good! One thing to keep in mind is that you have to take it out of the oven as soon as the top is golden otherwise it will burn really quickly!
