Comments: 0


Yield: 6 servings


  • ¼ cup butter or margarine
  • ¼ cup sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon powdered mustard
  • 2½ cups milk
  • 3 cups coarsely grated sharp Cheddar cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (about)
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated yellow onion (optional)
  • ½ pound elbow macaroni, cooked and drained by package directions


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Melt butter in saucepan over moderate heat, blend in flour and mustard, slowly stir in milk, and cook, stirring until thickened. Mix in 2 cups grated cheese and all remaining ingredients except macaroni. Taste for salt and add a little more if needed. Cook and stir until cheese melts.

Off heat, mix in macaroni; turn into a buttered 2-quart casserole, sprinkle with remaining cheese, and bake, uncovered, about ½ hour until bubbly and lightly browned.
