Who doesn’t love some creamy mac and cheese?

Planning a picnic or a bring a dish, casseroles of creaminess are sometimes top priority. Creamy Macaroni and cheese

This is just a wonderful balance of cheese and creaminess that I prefer.  I don’t fix macaroni and cheese all the time, but when the craving hits this is the recipe I prefer.  By no means is this on the healthy side.  You probably could substitute the pasta for cauliflower and make it on the healthy side.

Creamy cheesy mac & cheese

Serving 8-10

16 oz macaroni

1/2 cup butter

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

6 cups whole milk

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1 oz additional cheddar cheese for top

  1. Boil your macaroni and drain
  2. To make your cheese sauce; melt butter and flour over medium heat (the flour may soak up all the fat of the butter)
  3. Slowly add the milk, continue stirring for about 10 minutes until thickens.  (*This step is very important to attain the creaminess in this recipe)
  4.  Remove from heat and add the cheese, salt, chili and garlic powder.  Stir until cheese is all melted
  5. Preheat oven to 350
