Homemade Organic Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Here’s How I do it:

To Cook Macaroni:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  2. Bring 2 quarts of unchlorinated and unfluoridated water to a boil along with a pinch of salt.
  3. Add the macaroni to the water and cook until just under al dente, approximately 3-1/2 to 4 minutes; Strain, and top with a little bit of butter or organic extra-virgin olive oil to keep them from sticking.

To Make Cheese Sauce:

  1. In a medium chef’s saucepan, melt 3 Tbsp. butter over medium-high heat; Add 3 Tbsp. flour, yellow mustard, salt, and pepper; Stir until well combined, then cook for a minute.
  2. Add the milk to the butter mixture 1 cup at a time; Whisk in-between adding the milk to ensure that the sauce remains smooth.
  3. Once the mixture has thickened, begin adding cheeses one half-handful at a time; Stir in-between additions to keep the sauce smooth.

To Assemble Casserole:

  1. Place the cooked macaroni into an 8″ X 8″ casserole dish.
  2. Pour the cheese sauce on top of the macaroni and stir until well combined.
  3. Sprinkle the seasoned breadcrumb mixture on top of the casserole.
  4. Bake at 350° Fahrenheit for 35 minutes, or until the mixture is bubbling at the sides, the breadcrumbs are lightly browned and the cheese is melted on top.
  5. Enjoy!
