Mac and Cheese

mac and cheese on a plate

Is a better way to use up leftover cheese in the fridge, then making Mac and Cheese. I personally love my Mac and Cheese with a crumble on top and sometimes bacon. This time I snuck in some vegetables. You never know they where there.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb noodles, of choice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoon flour
  • 3/4 cup table cream
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese dip or cream cheese
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded gruyere
  • 3/4 cup shredded old cheddar
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. First cook your noodles (follow the directions on package). Also during the last 3-5 minutes of noodle cooking you can add some chopped vegetables. Personally I like broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots.
  3. Strain your pasta and set aside.
  4. Using a oven safe pan start making a roux by melting the butter and slowly stirring the flour into the butter until the mixture is toasted.
  5. Once roux is ready we'll add the table cream and cheese dip, mix until well incorporated. If mixture to thick add some water to adjust thickness.
  6. Next start adding the cheese, but reserve 1/4 cup of each cheese for later. Once cheese has melted and is well incorporated take off the heat.
  7. Combine noodles with cheese mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  8. Mix bread crumbs and the reserved cheese sprinkle on top. Then cover before putting oven.
  9. Cook covered for about 10 minutes, then uncovered for another 10 minutes (during the last five minutes use the broiler to get the top nice and toasty).
