Easy Pleasy Homemade Mac And Cheesy- TMT Tuesday

Tempt My Tummy:

Disclaimer- This is not actually my mac and cheese, but this was the most similiar picture google images had. I made it on Saturday, but I forgot to take a pic and I thought the leftovers in the fridge were just not as appetizing.

I got this recipe from my mom and my aunt. This is a family and friend favorite and the kids love it.

ingredients:
1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
6 to 8 oz. cheddar or american cheese or mix of both.
1 box (16 oz) elbow noodles- can use any kind of noodle- shells is also nice

Take the 1/2 stick butter and melt it on low, once melted add the flour. Mix and start to raise heat. Next add milk and keep stirring. It should start to thicken up. Add cheese and keep stirring on and off. It will all thicken as it sits and as you mix.
Make noodles according to package and add them to the cheese mixture.
Stir and serve- great with a touch of garlic salt.

Variations
1. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes to give it a crunchier top.
or
2. Mix melted butter and bread crumbs and make a kind of topping to put on before baking.
or
3. Do the top 2 things and also put slices of tomatoes on before baking.
Hope you enjoy this one!
Blessed with Grace
