31 Days of Creatvity Day 11

I have linked up at the Nester to join in on the 31 Days Challenge!

Day 11 This is from Betty Crocker cookbook from the 50’s.  It is my favorite comfort food!

Old Fashioned Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

8 ounces elbow macaroni
2 cups cubed cheddar cheese
1 cup cubed Jack cheese
2 cups creamy white sauce

Heat oven to 375.  Place a third of the cooked macaroni in un-greased casserole dish add a third of the cheese.  Pour a third of the white sauce over the cheese on each layer.  Bake 45 minutes.

Creamy White Sauce makes 2 cups:
4 Tbl margarine
4 Tbl flour
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
2 cups milk

Melt butter in saucepan over low heat.  Blend in flour salt and pepper.   Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Take off heat and stir in milk.  Return to heat and stir constantly until boiling.  Boil and stir 1 minute.

Some tweaks I have tried at different times that turned out yummy:
Little Smokey’s
Mozzarella cheese
Pepper Jack cheese
Paprika on top
For extra creaminess add an additional cup of white sauce

Let me know if you try this and liked it!
