I love mac and cheese. It’s one of the best food in the world. Everyone knows it. So here is one of thousands recipes in the world. Enjoy!


– 250 g  macaroni
– 3 tablespoons butter
– 3 tablespoons flour
– 1 tablespoon powdered mustard
– 3 cups milk
– 1/2 cup  onion, finely diced
– 1 bay leaf
– 1/2 teaspoon paprika
– 1 large egg
– 12 ounces sharp cheddar, shredded
– 1 teaspoon kosher salt
– fresh black pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook the pasta to al dente.

While the pasta is cooking, in a separate pot, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour and mustard and keep it moving for about five minutes. Make sure it’s free of lumps. Stir in the milk, onion, bay leaf, and paprika. Simmer for ten minutes and remove the bay leaf.
Temper in the egg. Stir in 3/4 of the cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Fold the macaroni into the mix and pour into a 2-quart casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese. Enjoy!
