Homemade Mac and Cheese Recipe

This Mac and Cheese recipe has been one of my favourite things to make in university. When I can’t decide what to make or can’t be bothered to spend half an hour cooking this is my go to!

It doesn’t take any longer to make than the boxed stuff and only a little more effort, and it tastes so good!

The mac and cheese is creamy without being too heavy, and you probably already have all the ingredients on hand.

The Sauce

I always start by getting some water boiling and while the pasta is cooking I get started on the sauce. Start off by adding butter to a pot on medium heat with the onions. Once the onions are softened you can add in the flour. After the flour is cooked you can add in the milk. I usually use skim milk but whatever kind you have should work, the higher the fat content the thicker your sauce will be. The last thing to add in is the cheese, the recipe calls for cheddar because that’s what I keep in my fridge but you can use a mix of your favourite cheeses 🙂
