    Cracker Barrel Macaroni and Cheese

    ingredients:
    2 tablespoons butter
    2 tablespoons flour
    1 cup low sodium chicken broth
    1/2 cup cream
    2 1/2 cups shredded colby cheese
    2 1/2 cups uncooked pasta
    1 teaspoon salt


    directions:
    In a saucepan, melt butter over medium low heat; add the flour a little bit at a time whilst whisking to make a roux.
    Heat the broth.
    Next, add the broth to the roux, and stir with the whisk; this will thicken as it heats.
    Add a little cream, watching for the desired consistency.
    Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a seperate pot; add salt and pasta.
    In the other pot, add shredded cheese a 1/4 of a cup at a time whilst stirring with a spoon. When you have about one cup of cheese in you can add the rest of the cheese.
    Cook the pasta until al dente; strain and combine with the cheese sauce.
    Pour the mix into a casserole and bake uncovered in a preheated oven set to 350F for about 10 minutes.
    Keep an eye on the mac & cheese, you want it to brown around the edges and in patches on top.
    Remove and let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

    I wonder if this would work with Velveeta instead of Colby cheese?

    hope,

    I make homemade "Mac n Cheese" alot and you can change the cheese in this recipe. Just follow the recipe as it states ( shredded) it will mix easier in your recipe. And you should have no problems. The "Velveeta"
    that you want to use will give this recipe a milder taste. Another little trick here is save some of the cheese and sprinkle it on top before putting it in the oven ( this will give you a nice looking finished product). Yumm
