Number of Servings: 12


    3 tablespoons butter
    3 tablespoons flour
    2 cups milk, hot (not boiling)
    1 1/4 cups grated American cheese
    1 1/4 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese (for different variation, try using Monterrey jack cheese or adding 1/2 cup jalapeno slices)
    1 lb elbow macaroni


1 Cook macaroni, drain, rinse under cold water, and drain again.

For Sauce:

1 Grease or spray with non-stick cooking spray a casserole dish.
2 Melt butter in medium saucepan.
3 When melted, add flour, stirring constantly for about 1 minute (until butter is absorbed).
4 Whisk in hot milk, cook for 3 minutes (stirring constantly).
5 Add 1 cup each of the cheeses, and stir until smooth.
7 Combine everything together and pour into casserole dish.
8 Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top, and bake at 400F for 20 minutes.
9. Add Panko Bread Crumbs on top, spray with butter (I use I can't believe it's not butter cooking spray) cook till golden brown.

Serve and Enjoy!
