Macaroni and Cheese with Crumb Topping

  • 1 pound uncooked macaroni (any kind you like)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 4 ounces processed cheese food (eg. Velveeta), cubed
  • Dry bread crumbs (Planko gives a crunchy topping)

Cook macaroni according to package directions.

In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.

Reduce heat. Add the cheeses, stirring until cheese is melted.

Drain macaroni.               

Transfer macaroni to a greased baking dish. Pour cheese sauce over macaroni; mix well.

Sprinkle bread crumbs over top.

Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees F for 30 minutes or until heated through and topping is golden brown.
