My husband and I own a business in the beautiful Kennebecasis Valley. I love trying new recipes and cooking for other people. When eating out I enjoy everything from a good hamburger to a great Thai dish.

Recipe for Creamy Mac and Cheese
Ingredients

4 cups Dried Macaroni

1 whole Egg Beaten

1/4 cup (1/2 Stick Or 4 Tablespoons) Butter

1/4 cup All-purpose Flour

2 cups half-and-half

1/2 cups milk

2 teaspoons (heaping) Dry Mustard

2 10 ounce packages of Cheese, Grated (I use sharp cheddar)

1/2 teaspoon Salt, More To Taste

1/2 teaspoon Seasoned Salt, More To Taste

1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

Preparation Method

Cook macaroni until very firm. Macaroni should be too firm to eat right out of the pot. Drain.

In a small bowl, beat egg.

In a large pot, melt butter and sprinkle in flour. Whisk together over medium-low heat. Cook mixture for five minutes, whisking constantly. Don’t let it burn.

Pour in milk, add mustard, and whisk until smooth. Cook for five minutes until very thick. Reduce heat to low.

Take 1/4 cup of the sauce and slowly pour it into beaten egg, whisking constantly to avoid cooking eggs.

Whisk together till smooth.

Pour egg mixture into sauce, whisking constantly. Stir until smooth.

Add in cheese and stir to melt.

Add salt and pepper. Taste sauce and add more salt and seasoned salt as needed!

Pour in drained, cooked macaroni and stir to combine. I use a little less than the full amount of cooked macaroni, because I love it extra creamy and coated. Just add it according to how you like it.

Serve immediately (very creamy) or pour into a buttered baking dish, top with extra cheese, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly and golden on top.
