    Default TNT recipe for Mac and Cheese

    Here is the homemade one that we make...

    Servings: 4 to 6 main-course servings; 8 to 10 side-dish servings
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a l l/2-quart deep baking dish.
    Bring to a rolling boil in a medium saucepan:
    6 cups water

    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    Add and cook just until tender:
    1 cups elbow macaroni (8 ounces)
    Drain and remove to a large bowl. Have ready:
    2 1/4 cups grated sharp Cheddar or Colby cheese
    Melt in a large saucepan over medium-low heat:
    2 tablespoons butter
    Whisk in and cook, whisking, for 3 minutes:
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    Gradually whisk in:
    2 cups whole or skim milk
    Stir in:
    1/2 medium onion, minced

    1 bay leaf

    1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
    Simmer gently, stirring often, for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir
    in two-thirds of the cheese. Season with:
    Salt and ground black pepper to taste
    Stir in the macaroni. Pour half of the mixture into the baking dish and
    sprinkle with half of the remaining cheese. Top with the remaining macaroni and
    then the remaining cheese. Melt in a small skillet over medium heat:
    1 tablespoon butter
    Add and toss to coat:
    1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs

    Sprinkle over the top of the macaroni. Bake until the breadcrumbs are lightly
    browned, about 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
    Prepare Baked Macaroni and Cheese, using skim milk instead of whole milk and
    substituting one 8-ounce package Neufchatel cheese for the Cheddar cheese. Cut
    the Neufchatel into 1-inch cubes and add it to the sauce all at once before
    seasoning with salt and ground black pepper to taste.
