Homemade Mac and Cheese

Servings: 8 
The kids added a suggestion that all the food and Thanksgiving and Christmas are mainly adult foods and that they wanted something for kids this year. So Bethany suggested Mac and Cheese and I made this for Christmas this year (2012)

1 pound uncooked elbow macaroni
4 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
6 cups milk
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup and 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter
1 cup bread crumbs
2 pinches paprika


  1. Cook macaroni according to the package directions. Drain.
  2. In a saucepan, melt butter or margarine over medium heat. Stir in enough flour to make a roux. Add milk to roux slowly, stirring constantly. Stir in cheeses, and cook over low heat until cheese is melted and the sauce is a little thick. Put macaroni in large casserole dish, and pour sauce over macaroni. Stir well.
  3. Melt butter or margarine in a skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs and brown. Spread over the macaroni and cheese to cover. Sprinkle with a little paprika.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes or until nice and browned. Serve.
