Why I Love This Recipe

My wife, Kathie, first made it for our niece Monique, then I decided to make it for a men's breakfast at our church (West Valley Christian Church). Kathie didn't think mac and cheese would be a good idea for breakfast, but she was wrong this time, because it was a hit. We have made Macaroni and Three Cheeses several times for the men's breakfasts.

Ingredients You'll Need

24 ounces elbow macaroni
1 cup butter = 2 sticks
8 Tablespoons all purpose flour
4 teaspoons dry mustard
½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
6 cups milk
3 pounds shredded sharp Cheddar & Monterey Jack Cheese mix
2 cups Parmesan cheese, grated
1 cup Italian Seasoned bread crumbs


Preheat oven to 350ºF and use buttery cooking spray in a 19½ x 12 inch baking pan.

Bring a large pan of unsalted water to a boil, add the macaroni and cook until tender firm (al denté). Drain and rinse in cool water.

Meanwhile in a large saucepan melt the butter over moderate high heat. Stir in the flour, mustard and cayenne pepper and cook for 1 minute or until bubbly. Gradually whisk in the milk and cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes or until thickened.

Add the cheese, stirring constantly for 5 minutes more or until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.

Place the cheese mixture in a large stainless steel bowl, then add the macaroni, and toss to coat well. Spoon into the baking pan.

In a small bowl mix the bread crumbs with the Parmesan cheese and sprinkle on top of the macaroni mixture.

Bake uncovered for 55 minutes or until bubbly and golden.
