My neighbor had to go on a business trip and asked me to make Mac and Cheese for her family.

Saw this recipe on Sweet Little Bluebird and hoped the Gomez family would like it. The above blog said it is 5 star- will wait to see how they rate it. :-)


16 ounces macaroni
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 1/2 cups milk- used 1 can evaporated milk and rest half and half

16 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Bring salted water to a boil in a large pot ( I used a large dutch oven). Add the macaroni, cook for 8 - 9 minutes. Strain and set aside.

In the dutch oven melt the butter over medium heat.

Add the flour- a little at a time, white pepper, salt, and cayenne pepper over the melted butter, whisk until smooth.

Stir in the milk slowly.Continue to stir while adding 

Add all of the cheese, stir into the milk/flour sauce until melted. Stir in the macaroni.

Pour into a 2 quart baking dish. 

Bake at 375 F for 30 minutes.


  1. This looks like it would be so good. I might try it next week when I am staying at my daughter's. YUM

  2. You sure can't go wrong with homemade mac and cheese! I bet the cream and evaporated milk made it extra rich....and yummy. :)
