For dinner tonight we are going to have a ham steak on the grill, steamed broccoli and baked macaroni and cheese.
Baked Macaroni and Cheese
24 ounces macaroni
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
4 cups milk
16 ounces Velveeta cheese
1/2 tsp black pepper
1-2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup bread crumb
3 tbs butter melted
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Prepare macaroni according to package directions.
Melt butter in a large pan.
Whisk flour into melted butter to create a light roux (paste).
Slowly whisk milk into the roux, whisking constantly to avoid lumps.
Allow milk and roux to heat for about one minute, then begin adding the Velveeta and shredded cheese.
Continue to gently whisk the mixture until all Velveeta and cheese has melted, then add black pepper.
After macaroni has cooked, drain the water from the pot and mix in the cheese sauce.
Once the macaroni and sauce are mixed together, transfer to a 9 x 13 baking dish and sprinkle with the topping mix (mix butter and bread crumb together).
Cook uncovered for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
