This is seriously one of the best mac & cheese recipes you will EVER find.  It’s easy, fast, and DELICIOUS.

I feel like I say this about every single recipe I share with you guys, but dammit I am not lying! 

Give it a try and let me know what you think.  Next time I make this Mac & Cheese I plan on adding tomato and bacon. **faints**


-1¾ cups of macaroni

-3 cups of grated cheddar cheese (or a mixture of other cheeses you love and know will melt well)

-¼ cup of flour

-½ teaspoon of dry or regular mustard

-3 tablespoons of butter

-1/8 teaspoon of smoked paprika

-Salt to taste (start wit ½ teaspoon and add more if you need to)

-¼ teaspoon of black pepper

-2½ cups of 2% milk

Add water and a little salt to a pot and boil the macaroni for 7 minutes. It’s important to NOT overcook them.

In the mean time pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees and start working on your sauce.

Melt the butter, add mustard, salt, pepper, 1/8 teaspoon of smoked paprika, and flour.

Stir for a couple of minutes, and add the milk.

Once you’ve added the 2 ½ cups of milk you must whisk until the sauce thickens. (5-8 minutes)

Back to the macaroni:  Drain in a colander and add a teaspoon of butter so that it doesn’t stick to the pot.  Set aside for a minute or two.

Once the sauce has thickened, turn off the stove, add 2 cups of the cheese and stir.

Pour the cheese sauce over the macaroni and stir (gently of course).

Pour half of the macaroni & cheese in a baking dish. Sprinkle ½ cup of cheese.  Add the rest of the mac & cheese mixture, sprinkle another ½ cup of cheese on top, and some more paprika.
