Mmmac & Cheese

I took Molly's mac & cheese and spiced it up. It was deeelicious. I made the whole recipe so we could have leftovers for lunch. To reheat I just add a bit of milk so it doesn't dry out. mmmm. I like to use the largest pan I have so that it is a thinner casserole and there is more surface area for the crumbs and for it to get crunchier.

Mmmac & Cheese
Serves: 5-6

1 stick of butter
3 cups of milk
3 tbsp of flour
1/2 cup of italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 pound of cooked elbow macaroni
1 large chunk (16 oz?) of sharp cheddar (cubed)
1 medium chunk (8 oz?) of swiss (cubed)
3 tsp smoked paprika
3 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp black pepper

Instructions: Melt the stick of butter and add the flour to make a paste. Then add the cheese and milk and stir. Add paprika and peppers, stir. Add more milk or flour to get the consistency you like. Pour the cheese over the cooked macaroni in a casserole pan. Top it with the bread crumbs and bake for 30 minutes at 350. Then enjoy!
