"Most recipes for macaroni and cheese use cheddar; this one uses American cheese. My mom learned to make this in Home Economics class in the 1930's and it has been a favorite in my family since then."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until just less than al dente; drain.
  2. In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add flour all at once and stir vigorously until combined. Add milk a little at a time, stirring constantly until all milk is incorporated and sauce is smooth. Stir in pepper, American cheese and tomatoes. Stir until cheese is melted and mixture is smooth (if cheese starts to stick, reduce heat). Place macaroni in a 10x15 baking dish. Pour cheese mixture over macaroni, and sprinkle with bread crumbs.
  3. Bake 15 minutes, or until top is golden.

I'm giving this a four because of the nice cheesy flavour. Beware! this recipe serves eight! Large pots are a must.

I did not care for this recipe.

nice recipe. i'd leave out the tomatoes,tho'.own personal preference. i'll use this again and again. thanks.

so cheesy, and so yummy

This recipe was huge! it made alot! but it was very tasty and filling and something different! the only thing i would add would be salt or some kind of salty seasoning! it was alittle bland but ...

Way too much milk! I didn't even use half the cheese sauce (froze it for another time). Next time I will use less milk, no flour, and no oil. Otherwise it was perfect. ;)
