Mama's Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

All I have to say is Wow! I don't know a single person who does not like macaroni and cheese. Who can resit that ooey gooey cheesy taste! This is one of the best creamy mac and cheese recipes out there. Thanks Christy Jordan from Southern Plate! This is her mama's recipe and I am so happy she shared it with us. I have tried a few of her recipes on her website and decided I had to get her cookbook Southern Plate: Classic Comfort Food that Makes Everyone Feel Like Family. This recipe is actually in her cookbook as well. I highly recommend her cookbook. Good old fashioned cooking! As she states in her cookbook, this recipe is easy because all the ingredients are in two's, except of course the salt, pepper and dry mustard I added. I can't wait to try her baked macaroni and cheese recipe next time but this is the recipe all the kids like! Enjoy!

Mama's Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

2 cups Velveeta, cubed
2 cups whole milk
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups dry macaroni
1/8 tsp dry mustard (I added this)
1/8 tsp salt (I added this)
1/8 tsp pepper (I added this)

Cover Macaroni with water and cook until almost done about 9 to 10 minutes, drain well. In bowl, melt butter in microwave. Stir in flour. Stir in milk. Salt and Pepper to taste. Pour cubed cheese into milk mixture and microwave at 30 second intervals until melted, stirring often. Stir in cooked macaroni. Place in oven safe dish and bake, uncovered, at 350 for twenty minutes. Give it a good stir when done.
