Macaroni and Cheese Ingredients: 8 ounces elbow macaroni 2 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 2 cups milk 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs 1 tablespoon melted butter Instructions: Preheat your oven to 350°F. Cook the macaroni according to the package directions. Drain and set aside. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour, salt, and pepper, and whisk until combined. Gradually add the milk, whisking constantly until the mixture is smooth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the shredded cheese until it is melted and the sauce is smooth. Add the cooked macaroni to the sauce and stir to combine. Transfer the mixture to a 9×13-inch baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the panko bread crumbs and melted butter. Sprinkle the mixture over the top of the macaroni and cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the sauce is bubbly. Serve hot. This creamy, cheesy macaroni and cheese is the ultimate comfort food. It’s easy to make and sure to be a hit with the whole family. Enjoy!
