Hey ladies. :) Lately I've been craving a lot of cheese and I find that Mac n' Cheese will do the trick! I picked up a great recipe from school for quick & easy Mac n' Cheese so if anyone wants the recipe-here it is:
Noodles- As many as desired
Butter- 2 Tablespoons
Flour- 1 Tablespoon
Milk- 1/4 cup, or as much as desired
Cheese- As much as desired
Sour cream- Optional, but as much as desired
Bread crumbs- Also optional, and as much as desired
Start by grating cheese, you will either need blocked cheese or you can use already grated cheese. I recommend you grate a lot because this will be used for your sauce. Next boil water, then add noodles any would work but I prefer hollow noodles. I usually just dump in half the bag because my family will eat this too, so just add as many noodles as you want. After your noodles have boiled, drain them and let them sit while you make your sauce. You will need 2 Tablespoons of butter in a saucepan, let that melt on medium then quickly add 1 Tablespoon of flour, mix that until it combines then add 1/4 cup of milk, stirring constantly so the roux doesn't stick to the bottom of the saucepan. Once that mixes together add your cheese, it will melt quickly and make sure to be constantly stirring. Sometimes I add more milk just to make it creamier. You can add as much cheese as you want, just make sure that the sauce will cover all the noodles. I'll also add sour cream, just about 2 big spoonfuls. Once that mixes together turn off the heat and set to the side while you get your noddles. Use the pot you cooked the noodles in and put the noodles back into that. If they are stuck together run them through some warm water to loosten them up. Put those in the pot then add the sauce, if any sauce did cook to the botton of the pan quickly scrub that off so it doesn't permanently stick. If you want you can put the Mac n' Cheese into a cooking pan or glass pan and lay that out. Sometimes I'll also add bread crumbs to the top, the walmart brand works perfectly. Once you sprinkle the bread crumbs on top, you're ready to serve!
2 part butter to 1 part flour, if you want to make a bigger roux for family or anything.
Hope it was good if you made it, it always is when I do. :)
