• Check out this tasty Amazing Macaroni And Cheese recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups pasta, cooked to al dente (I like to use Scoobi-doo noodles because they pick up the sauce well, but macaroni works too)

  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • 1 tbsp. dry mustard powder
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt (table salt will work too)
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/8 - 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional, adds a little kick)
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 8 oz. cheddar cheese, the sharper the better
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 cup corn flake crumbs (you can also use bread crumbs or panko crumbs)
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 4 oz. cheddar cheese

Preparation

  1. In sauce pan, melt butter. Whisk in flour and dry mustard powder, and continue whisking until smooth (2-3 minutes). Add milk, onion, bay leaf, paprika and cayenne pepper and simmer 10 minutes (until thickened). Remove from heat & discard bay leaf. Temper egg (add slowly to dish to avoid it scrambling) and stir in salt, pepper and cheese. Pour over pasta and put in baking dish (2 quarts).
  2. For topping:
  3. Melt butter. Stir in cheese and corn flake crumbs. Sprinkle evenly over pasta.
  4. Bake at 350 F (180 C) for 30 minutes. Let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving so everything settles.
