"Then with with good friends... and good food on the board,
and good wine in the pitcher,
we may well ask, when shall we live if not now?"

Linda's Amazing Mac & Cheese

This Mac & Cheese recipe is based on the Kraft 1920’s advertisement recipe found in magazines at that time. I updated it a bit to give it a bit more flavor zing. Mom Hundt introduced me to a similar version when John and I first started dating. I have been in love ever since. Family and friends are always thankful when I make it for them, and yours will be too! 

  • ¼ C. butter plus 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • ¼ C. flour
  • 1 Tbsp. minced white onion (Vidalia if possible)
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh thyme
  • 2 C. milk
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Dash black pepper
  • 1 ½ C. sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 ½ C. white cheddar cheese
  • 2 C.  cooked and drained elbow macaroni 

On medium heat, melt 1 Tbsp. butter and olive oil. Add onion, fresh thyme until tender and light brown – stirring constantly to avoid burning. Add ¼ C. butter until melted, add flour, salt & pepper to make paste. While stirring, gradually add milk until mixed, then 1 C. of sharp cheddar and 1 C. of white cheddar cheese until melted and thickened. Add cooked macaroni until well mixed. Pour into buttered 1 ½ quart casserole dish. Sprinkle remaining cheeses on top of macaroni. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
