Forwarded by an admiring AMGE reader ...

'Bout a year ago, I posted the recipe for my patented macaroni and cheese. Tonight, I tried a new mac 'n' cheese recipe, which was forwarded by an admiring AMGE reader. It was pretty damn good.

You can see a pic of the finished product above. Now, here's the recipe:

KG's Macaroni and Cheese


6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups milk, warm
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1 lb elbow noodles, well-cooked


Heat oven to 350°F

Melt 6 tablespoons butter in a large saucepot over medium heat. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk in the warmed milk and bring to a boil, continue to whisk constantly. The mixture will thicken as the heat increases. Continue to stir while adding the cheese and pepper.

Pour the cheese sauce over the noodles and add to a casserole dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

that recipe is alot like my grandmothers. she always used fresh grated cheese. you can really tell a different when you use that instead of the packaged grated cheese.
