Recipe: Better Than Grandma’s Mac and Cheese

Well a long time ago I said I would include a few recipes just for fun so here it goes.

Mac and Cheese

ready for some mac and cheese

Everyone loves it, it costs little to make, and it’s easy to make in bulk. There’s a million ways to make it, mine’s the best.

  • Noodles (doesn’t even need to be Marconi anything small will do)
  • Onions
  • Cheese (Cheddar, maybe a blend with some others)
  • Milk
  • Flour
  • Beer
  • Butter
  • Breadcrumbs

Boil the noodles, leave them a little underdone. Make a while sauce. There’s plenty of recipes for this basically you just melt butter, then mix in milk and flour and simmer (or add more flour) till it’s the desired consistency. Sauté the onions in olive oil (or anything). You could also throw in other vegies such as peppers, leeks, and tomato. If you have a large enough baking dish you can just mix everything in there, otherwise use a bowl first. Mix the noodles, white sauce, beer (dark or light each gives a very different but great flavor), onions and 3/4 of your cheese. Sprinkle breadcrumbs and remaining cheese on top once it’s in the baking dish. Bake at 350 until the cheese and breadcrumbs starts to turn brown.

You’re notice I didn’t include quantities. You should know what mac and cheese is supposed to look like. The now cheesy white sauce shouldn’t be water nor a solid that doesn’t mix. More beer and milk will make it runnier while cheese and flour will make it more solid. Enjoy, grab a beer, and get back to coding!
