      Sloppy Macaroni and Cheese

      1 tbs vegetable oil
      1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
      1 onion, chopped
      1/2 tsp garlic powder
      1 1/2 tsp yellow mustard
      1/4 tsp dry mustard
      1 cup ketchup
      2 tsp brown sugar
      Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
      8-oz elbow macaroni
      4 tbs butter, divided
      2 tbs flour
      1/4 tsp dry mustard
      1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
      1 1/2 cups milk
      2 cups shredded cheese, sharp cheddar, or a cheddar blend
      1 cup fresh breadcrumbs

      In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the vegetable oil. Add the ground beef and onions and cook, stirring, until the beef is no longer pink and the onions are lightly browned. Pour off excess grease.

      In a small bowl or cup, combine the garlic powder, prepared mustard, ketchup, and brown sugar. Stir into the ground beef mixture. Taste and add salt and pepper, as needed. Set aside.

      Cook the macaroni following package directions. Drain in a colander and rinse with hot water.

      In a saucepan over medium heat, melt 2 tbs of butter. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 min. Add 1/4 tsp dry mustard and 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper. Cook, stirring, for 2 min.

      Add the milk and cook, stirring, until thickened. Stir in the shredded cheese and add salt, to taste.

      Heat the oven to 350°.

      Combine the drained macaroni with the cheese sauce.

      Spoon the ground beef mixture into a lightly greased 2 to 2 1/2-quart baking dish. Top with the macaroni and cheese mixture.

      Melt the remaining 2 tbs of butter.

      Combine the bread crumbs with 2 tbs melted butter, mixing well to coat all of the crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs over the macaroni and cheese layer.

      Bake for 25 to 35 min, until hot and the topping is lightly browned.  Serves 4-6
