This mac and cheese is perfect - can't go wrong and spice it up how you like.

Ingredients

1/2
lb elbow macaroni
3
tbsp butter
3
tbsp flour
1
tbsp powdered mustard
3
cups milk
1/2
cup yellow onion, finely diced (optional)
1
bay leaf
1/2
tsp paprika
1
large egg
12
oz sharp cheddar, shredded
1
tsp kosher salt
Fresh black pepper

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • 2 In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook the pasta to al dente.
  • 3 While the pasta is cooking, in a separate pot, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour and mustard and keep it moving for about five minutes. This is called a roux. Make sure there aren't any lumps. Stir in the milk, onion (if desired), bay leaf, and paprika. Simmer for ten minutes, then remove the bay leaf.
  • 4 Temper in the egg. Stir in 3/4 of the cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Fold the macaroni into the mix and pour into a 2-quart casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese.
  • 5 Melt the butter in a saute pan and toss the bread crumbs to coat. Top the macaroni with the bread crumbs. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and rest for five minutes before serving.
