Favorite Mac and Cheese

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk (2% ok)
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 (8 oz.) package elbow macaroni
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (8 oz.) pkg. processed American cheese, cut into strips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion for 2 minutes. Stir in flour and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in milk, salt, mustard and pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until mixture boils and thickens. Meanwhile, bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. To the milk mixture, add the Cheddar and American cheeses; stir until cheese melts. Combine macaroni and cheese sauce in a 2-quart baking dish; mix well. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
