Southern Mac-n-cheese

We had this Monday night (with Pork Tenderloin - not to be confused with Pork Loin, silly) and it was quite good.

7 oz elbow macaroni (measure prior to cooking)
1/4 C butter
1/2 medium yellow onion (diced)
3 T flour
2 C milk
8 oz cream cheese
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
2 t dry mustard
2 C cubed cheese (I used colby jack)
1 C fresh bread crumbs
2 T parsley (chopped)

  • Cook the macaroni according to directions.
  • In a medium saucepan, saute the onion in the butter.
  • Add the flour to make a paste.
  • Add milk and cream cheese and stir until smooth.
  • Add salt, pepper, and dry mustard.
  • Add cubed cheese and stir until smooth.
  • Add the cooked macaroni and mix well.
  • Pour into a small casserole (8x8) pan.
  • Sprinkle the bread crumbs and parsley on top.
  • Bake at 400 at 15-20 minutes.
This was even better warmed up the next day. All three of us loved it!
