MACARONI AND CHEESE – A Wallace Family Favorite

You would think I live with a houseful of Mice the way my family eats cheese! Macaroni and Cheese is one of our favorite cheese dishes! It seems like I make it different every time and that is usually due to whatever cheese I have on hand! NOTE: Cream Cheese and Cottage Cheese have BOTH been in my Mac and Cheese!  IT TASTES GOOD AND IT WORKS! I also like to add in Velveeta Cheese another great cheese to use is Kraft cheese with cream cheese added…..You pick your favorite cheese and give it a try!

2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cups milk – sometimes I use 2 cans evaporated milk if I have it
8 OZ. sour cream (optional)
8 oz. extra-sharp cheddar cheese, cubed or shredded
8 oz. 4 State cheddar cheese, cubed or shredded

1/8 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs (Topping) – (Optional)
1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese (Topping) – (Optional)

Heat oven to 350º. Cook elbow macaroni as directed on package – I use kosher salt to season my water and I like to cook my pasta al dente. Drain and set aside. In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Stir in flour, salt, pepper, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Stir in milk, sharp cheddar and medium cheddar cheese, stirring until cheese is melted. Gently stir macaroni into cheese sauce, add the sour cream stirring until combined. Pour into ungreased baking dish. Mix together bread crumbs and parmesan cheese; sprinkle over macaroni and cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes or until bubbly.
