Homemade Mac and Cheese
Easy, Creamy, Rich-tasting and Delish!
Is there anything more cozy than a big homemade Mac and Cheese?
It is classic comfort food that works just about anywhere, anytime!
A few years back, my son was asking for a homemade mac and cheese that is truly creamy and cheesy and really, really yummy.
We’ve tried many recipes and this one is the favorite!
This recipe is adapted from the 365 Ways to Make Pasta Cookbook and it’s been on repeat. Each time it’s a HUGE hit.
I love that it super easy to make and makes a large quantity so that we can enjoy it when it first comes out of the oven (so, so good!) and was reheat it throughout the week when my son comes home from school hungry (as in always ravenous) or needs a second dinner (can you say teen boy?)
And it’s exactly what he asked for…. creamy, cheesy, flavorful and really, really, yummy!
Oh, and it is topped with lightly buttered breadcrumbs for just a little crunch. So good!
So how do we make it?
You’ll need 9 pantry ingredients:
sharp cheddar cheese
gluten-free all purpose flour (we used GF Jules – Affiliate link)
gluten-free elbow macaroni (we used BioNaturae – affiliate link)
gluten-free panko breadcrumbs (we used Aleia’s, affiliate link)
salt and pepper.
As an aside, purchasing through an affiliate link generates a small percentage of the sale for me, but does not change your cost at all. So purchasing through an affiliate link helps me fund this website and all the recipes I share, so thank you!
Back to the mac and cheese….
It comes together quickly!
All you do is make the cheese sauce while the pasta boils…. start with melted butter (it’s only 3 tablespoons!), then stir in some flour (this will help thicken the sauce as it cooks). Whisk in some heated milk and bring to a boil… it will get thick and creamy.
Then you add in the mustard, salt and pepper. And add in the cheese and cooked pasta. Mix together and you’re almost done!
Spoon the pasta mix into a prepared baking sheet, sprinkle with remaining cheese, top with bread crumbs and bake!
So who wants a big scoop?
Hope you love it as much as we do!
