Foodie Friday: Homemade Mac-n-Cheese

Homemade Mac-n-Cheese
This is one of my favorite comfort foods!  My Mom would make this all of the time growing up & I have never liked the stuff out of the blue box.  Real cheese please =)  Not saying anything bad about the box kind, my kids like it & I will feed it to them for lunch sometimes, but this definitely tops it!  And my entire family loves it...double bonus there!
Here's the Recipe:
Homemade Mac-n-Cheese

One package noodles (any kind)
4 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1 small onion diced
4 Tablespoons flour
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
2 cups milk
2 cups shredded cheese

  • Cook noodles & set aside.
  • In a saucepan melt butter and saute onions.  Add flour, salt, & pepper.  Mix it up.
  • In the same pan add 2 cups of milk (Any kind will do.  I usually use skim because that is what we have on hand.).  Heat over medium heat and stir pretty constant so the milk doesn't scorch.
  • When the sauce has thickened add the cheese and let it melt.
  • Pour noodles into a casserole dish and pour the cheese sauce over them.  Mix it up & top with a little bit of paprika (It's just adds a bit of color & makes it pretty).
  • Bake @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
