Baked Macaroni And Cheese

Here is another dish which was part of a challenge for BM 37, week 4. This was suggested by Varada and since my little one loves Mac n Cheese, I thought she would enjoy this baked version as well. 

And she sure did enjoy her after school snack! And so did the other adult at home :). This is for Day 3.

Ingredients - 

Macaroni 1 cup (4 oz )
Butter 1 Tbsp
Flour 1 Tbsp
Milk  cup
Sharp Cheddar Cheese 1 cup (I used 4 cheese blend)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Bread Crumbs 1/2 cup

Baked Macaroni And Cheese

Method Of Preparation -

Boil the Macaroni (according to instructions on the packet) in about 4-5 cups of water adding a little salt.

Drain and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 400 ° F.

Whisk together milk, flour and pepper.

In a heated  pan, add butter and the milk-flour mixture.

Reduce the heat and stir continuously until the milk -flour mixture thickens.

Gradually add the cheese while stirring and as soon as the cheese melts, add the drained macaroni and mix well until the sauce is coated well.

Grease an oven safe dish and transfer the mac and cheese. Sprinkle the bread crumbs evenly on top and bake for about 18-20 minutes until the top gets a golden brown hue.

Remove and serve warm.

Preparation Time 20 min + baking time 18 min
