Baked Mac and Cheese

August 7, 2016

Always a family favorite, macaroni and cheese is the classic comfort food that’s easily prepared!

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 35 mins
  • Yields: 4-6 Servings

Ingredients

8 oz. Mueller's Elbows

2 tbsp corn starch

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp dry mustard

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

3 cups milk

2 tbsp butter or margarine

2 cups shredded American or cheddar cheese, divided

Directions

1Preheat oven to 375°F.

2Cook pasta for only 6 minutes. Drain well.

3Combine cornstarch, salt, dry mustard & pepper in medium saucepan. Over medium-high heat, stir in milk until smooth. Add butter, stirring constantly.

4Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil 1 minute.

5Remove from heat. Stir in 1-3/4 cups cheese until melted. Add cooked pasta.

6Pour into greased 2-quart casserole. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

7Bake uncovered 25 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165-175 degrees.

Cook’s Tip

Sprinkle bread crumbs or crushed salad croutons on top of the cheese for a more traditional, crunchy macaroni and cheese.

Stir bacon, diced ham, or other add-ins into the mixture before transferring it to the casserole dish for a twist on a classic.

I cut this off the box & saved a picture of it to my phone, thank goodness! It’s been replaced by a different recipe now. However, my copy is the same as the old EXCEPT it calls for 2 1/2 cups of milk not 3.
This Thanksgiving though I wanted to try something different even though my family LOVES this and it’s always a hit. The new recipe called for 6 different cheeses, Kerigold butter and other very expensive things. I spent more on the dish than the entire dinner! My family hated it! That night I made Mueller’s and we heated it up tonight and as usual, a huge hit!! Never will I try another!!! This is the best!

I am not a cook but this baked Mac and cheese is a hit every time. I get asked by family and friends to make it – preferably weekly (although I limit it to 1 month) and especially with smoked Gouda, Just finished making a double batch which will be gone in no time.

Been making this for years from the old recipe on the box using cornstarch. I. I think I gave my son my recipe card so had to look it up. My husband was the one who grated all the cheese. My 4 grandchildren aged 8-15, love it and my son makes it for them as a meal with a side of veggies. Now that I am a widow I will divide it in several smaller dishes and freeze the extras and of course, I’ll be the one grating the cheese .

Been making this for years, I always double the recipe because all my children and grandchildren love it. I use 2 cans of evaporated milk with equal amount of water and of course double the rest of the ingredients. It is always a hit at any gathering we go to. This recipe used to be on the back of the Mueller macaroni box but they changed to another one with croutons several years ago. I am a 77 year old male who loves to cook.

This was also my mothers recipe, only we did not bake it we cooked the ingredients over medium heat on the stove to bring to a rolling boil. We also added onion for more flavor and texture. We then would put under the broiler until browned. Leftovers are the best!!!!!

Muellers pasta isn’t available where we live now but I remember what a good recipe this was so I searched for it and I quadrupled the recipe for a large family gathering. I’ll be surprised if there is any left.

This is the recipe my mother used to make mac n cheese. She would add a can of flaked tuna for a Friday night dinner when Catholics were not allowed to eat meat on fridays. It is delicious.
