Homemade Baked Macaroni and Cheese Ingredients
- 1 cup butter (or margarine)
- 1 cup flour
- 8 cups milk
- 1 tsp salt/pepper to taste
- 8 cups shredded cheese
- 48 oz cooked and drained elbow macaroni
Homemade Baked Macaroni and Cheese Directions
Melt 1 cup butter or margarine (whichever you have on hand) in the pot. Stir continuously so you don’t burn your butter like I do sometimes
Pour 1 cup flour into melted butter and stir together until flour is thoroughly moist.
Whisk in 8 cups of milk. Stir constantly for several minutes until boiling.
Stir in 8 cups of cheese until completely melted. This takes about 2-3 minutes of additional stirring. Remove from heat when thoroughly melted.
Pour in 48 oz of cooked and drained elbow macaroni into your large pot of homemade cheese sauce. Stir gently, so you don’t mash your noodles.
Spray your baking dishes with non-stick spray. Fill each dish 3/4 of the way full with Baked Mac and Cheese mixture. Top with removing shredded cheese if you’d like. I didn’t have anymore on hand and it still turned out nice and bubbly.
Place baking dishes full of your yummy Baked Mac and Cheese into your preheated oven at 375 for 25 minutes. When your oven beeps in 25 minutes, check the top of your baked macaroni and cheese. You can turn your heat off, but let your dishes sit 5 or so more minutes in the oven, depending on how brown and crispy you’d like the top.

In this new Mac and Cheese cooking vlog, it gets very noisy. The kids were dancing and having a good ol’ time, which made me feel like maybe I could video my dinner making attempts. I realize now by the high-pitch carrying-on that things get thunderous at several points. Hope you love us and our Mac and Cheese anyway! Real life noise included! xoxo
