Mac and cheese.
The War Dept. and I were watching TV an a chef was on making Macoroni and cheese. WOW, we said when we watched this recipe being made.
They posted the recipe on their site. So I talked Mary Lou into making it yesterday. (she is our expert on mac & cheese) It was excellent !
Here you go!
Jasper’s Mac and Cheese
2 tbs butter
2 ounces of all purpose flour
2 cup of milk
1 cup heavy cream
½ lb of extra sharp white cheddar cheese
¼ teaspoon of nutmeg
1 bay leaf
1lb elbow macaroni
2 cups fresh bread crumbs (we use leftover Hattie’s biscuits. For the more adventuresome see biscuit recipe below)
Cook macaroni in boiling salted water until aldente. Strain and shock in cold water.
Melt butter in medium sauce pan.
Add flour and cook over med-low heat for 2-3 mins. (do not brown)
Remove pan from heat. Add milk and cream while whisking vigorously.
Add nutmeg and bay leaf and bring to low simmer over medium heat
Simmer sauce for 10 min stirring frequently
Remove from heat and add half of the cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste
Mix the pasta and the cheese sauce and pour into oven proof dish.
Mix remaining cheese with the bread or biscuit crumbs and cover the macaroni
Bake in the oven at 400 until topping is brown and cheese sauce is bubbling.
Garnish with scallions and Rosemary or herbs of choice.
Serves 2 for main course or 4 side dishes

Was it thick and creamy, or lumpy? I've tried a few in the past, and just dry and lumpy.. I gave up.

I'm a big Mac & Cheese fan. I think I know what I will be serving my family for Friday night dinner.
Thanks for sharing this recipe!
