Macaroni & Cheese
This is the classic Mac & Cheese recipe! Try playing around with the cheese used; smoked cheddar is a small change with huge impact on the dish. You can also add peas or broccoli florets for some extra fibre and a more nutritious dish.
4 cups cooked elbow macaroni 1/4 cup butter
2 1/2 TBSP flour
1 TBSP C&C Macaroni & Cheese Blend
3 cups milk
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup bread crumbs
In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add in flour and spices. Stir until it becomes a thick paste, called a roux. Allow the roux to become golden brown in colour. At this time add milk slowly to the roux, stirring constantly until combined.
Stir in cheeses and cook over low heat until cheese is melted and sauce thickens. Season with salt and pepper. Put macaroni in a large casserole dish, pour sauce over top. Mix well. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top to cover.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until heated through. Let sit 5 minutes before cutting to serve.
