Grandmother's Mac and Cheese
Like Kerin, my grandmother's legendary mac and cheese has a crunchy top!
- 16 oz elbow macaroni, uncooked
- 3/4 stick of cheddar cheese, grated
- 3 cups of milk
- butter-about 2 tbsp
- salt and pepper.
Bake at 350 in 13X9 inch dish.
Cook macaroni according to directions--don't over boil. Mix cooked
macaroni, grated cheese, salt and pepper. Put in casserole dish. Pour
milk over mixture. Dot with small pieces of butter. Bake 1 hr. ( To
make dinner time easier, earlier in the day I have mixed everything but
milk in casserole dish and put in fridge. At last minute, add milk and
We always loved the crunchy top. We used to get in trouble if we took
the serving spoon and scooped only the crunch top! But some kids who
are raised on the creamy kraft macaroni and cheese don't like the
crunchy part. I offer to eat the crunchy top and they can have the
bottom! So nice of me!! LOL!!!
