Scrumptious Homemade Mac & Cheese

Comfort food in July?
Why, yes!

It’s a hit with the kids and just simply
a great meal. We love it in our house.
And the best part is it’s so easy to make.

And your house smells oh so good when it’s baking,
makes you want to curl up on the couch and read a great book.
It’s a rainy day here in Torbay today, so I may do just that!

 Scrumptious Homemade Mac & Cheese

·         8 ounces uncooked elbow macaroni
·         2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
·         1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
·         3 cups milk
·         1/4 cup butter
·         2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
·         2 tablespoons butter
·         1/2 cup bread crumbs
·         1 pinch paprika
1.     Cook macaroni according to the package directions. Drain.
2.     In a saucepan, melt butter or margarine over medium heat. Stir in enough flour to make a roux. Add milk to roux slowly, stirring constantly. Stir in cheeses, and cook over low heat until cheese is melted and the sauce is a little thick. Put macaroni in large casserole dish, and pour sauce over macaroni. Stir well.
3.     Melt butter or margarine in a skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs and brown. Spread over the macaroni and cheese to cover. Sprinkle with a little paprika.
4.     Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Serve.

I did make a couple of changes.
Although I do use breadcrumbs this time I substituted with
Toppables crackers.
I omitted the paprika but added fresh pepper instead.
