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
  • 1/2 cup table cream
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • Shredded gruyere
  • Shredded old cheddar
  • Bread crumbs or panko
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. First cook your noodles (follow the directions on package).
  3. Strain your pasta, but save the pasta water, and set aside both.
  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 cream cheese, mix until well incorporated. If mixture too thin or too thick add some pasta water to adjust.
  6. Next start adding the cheese (eqauls parts of each type), but reserve some each cheese for later.
  7. Once cheese has melted and is well incorporated take off the heat.
  8. Combine noodles with cheese mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  9. Mix bread crumbs and the reserved cheese sprinkle on top. Then cover before putting in oven.
  10. Cook covered for about 10 minutes, then uncovered for another 10 minutes
  11. Lastly for five minutes cook uncovered using the broiler. Enjoy!
