Home Baked Macaroni And Cheese
|Macaroni||8 Ounce (1 Package)|
|Boiling water||3 Quart|
|American cheese||1⁄2 Pound, cut in 1/2-inch cubes|
|Milk||1 3⁄4 Cup (28 tbs)|
Break macaroni into 1 1/2 or 2-inch lengths.
Add salt to rapidly boiling water in a 4-qt. saucepan; then drop macaroni in and boil about 20 minutes, or until macaroni is just tender, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
Drain in colander or sieve.
Run hot water through macaroni to rinse well.
Arrange half the cooked macaroni in bottom of a 6-cup buttered casserole, sprinkle with salt, and dot with half the butter.
Cover with half the cheese.
Add another layer of drained macaroni and repeat with rest of ingredients.
Press macaroni down with a fork until milk comes up over the top layer of macaroni to insure a crusty brown surface.
Bake in a moderately slow oven (325° F.) about 45 minutes until done and surface is a, rich golden brown.
