I think I will be using my lunch break today to enter a few recipes.   I never seem to have time at home!  Over the entire weekend I only add two to my website!  ARGH!!

This is my favorite, but my hubby and children prefer Kraft Mac and Cheese out of the box! 


1-1/2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
5 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups milk
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
2 ounces process American cheese, cubed

½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs

Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain.  Place in greased 1-1/2 qt. baking dish; set aside.  In a saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.  Stir in flour until smooth.  Gradually add milk; bring to a boil.  Cook and stir for 2 minutes; reduce heat.  Stir in cheese, salt and pepper until cheese is melted.  Pour over macaroni; mix well.  Melt the remaining butter; add the breadcrumbs.  Sprinkle over casserole.  Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. 

Yield: 6 servings
