Cracker Barrel Baked Macaroni & Cheese
A truly classic comfort food - good, old-fashioned mac and cheese like Grandma made.
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
2 1/2 cups milk
2 cups cheddar (8 oz.), divided
2 cups elbow macaroni (8oz.)
1/4 cup buttered bread crumbs
In saucepan, melt butter. Blend in flour,
salt, and mustard. Add milk, stir constantly
until sauce thickens a little. Add 1 1/2
cups cheese, heat until melted, stirring.
Remove from heat.
Meanwhile, cook macaroni as directed;
drain. Combine with sauce in a buttered
2 quart casserole; top with remaining
cheese, then buttered bread crumbs and
sprinkle with paprika.
Bake at 375’ about 20-25 mins. or until
nicely browned and bubbly.
