Basic macaroni & cheese - FOX 8 WVUE New Orleans News, Weather, Sports

Basic macaroni & cheese

  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • 2 cups uncooked macaroni  (mini-shells are always a hit)
  • ¼ cup minced onion
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp dry mustard
  • ½ tsp white pepper
  • 1½ cups water
  • ¾ cup skim milk
  • 2 cups mild cheddar cheese, shredded

Heat butter in a large skillet. Cook macaroni and next 4 ingredients for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add water and milk; heat to boiling temperature. Simmer uncovered 10-15 minutes or until macaroni is tender. Remove from heat; stir in cheese until melted through.

This is always a favorite!!  Feel free to play around with this basic recipe adding vegetables (tomatoes are great) and other cheeses, such as sharp cheddar or monterey jack.
