Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease an oven-proof soup crock or 1 cup baking dish.
  2. Fill a small saucepan with water, and bring to a boil. Stir in the macaroni; boil until cooked but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well, and reserve.
  3. In the same saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour, salt, pepper, onion powder, and milk; whisk until smooth. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and whisk in 1/3 cup cheese, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. Stir in the cooked macaroni. Spoon the macaroni and cheese into the prepared dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake, uncovered, until the cheese is melted and the macaroni is heated through, about 10 minutes.

Awesome! I get a hankering for mac and cheese every once in a while, and BF detests it (what's wrong with him?!?!) so I can never make it for dinner. I make this for myself for lunch now to cure...

Why would anyone make one serving of mac n cheese that requires all this work? I scratched my head at thought of measuring out only 3 TBS. of uncooked pasta? You can still make this a mac n ch...

Finally! I've been looking for months for a creamy/saucy homemade mac n cheese recipe that's also tasty- and I've found it! Thank you cody's mama for posting ur pic- which made me try this rec...

Quite salty and not very cheesy. Best to let it sit for 10-15 minutes after baking to solidify the sauce and avoid eating macaroni and cheese soup.
