Baked Macaroni & Cheese

This is a recipe from a Newfoundland cookbook that used to belong to my grandmother Mary Durnford. I used to make this back in the day when I lived at home and still make it now and then. Cooper made some fantastic noises as he enjoyed it tonight. Sorry for the weird measurements........it's how it was in the cookbook.....

25 ml margarine
25 ml flour
2 ml salt
0.5 ml pepper
350 ml milk
250 ml grated cheddar cheese
1 ml Worcestershire sauce
1 ml prep mustard
250 ml macaroni
75 ml bread/cornflake crumbs
25 ml cheddar cheese

Boil pot of water, cook uncooked macaroni noodles and set aside. In pot melt your margarine and stir in your flour, salt and pepper. I don't measure the salt and pepper......just put what I like in. Pour in your milk and continue to stir over medium heat until sauce begins to thicken. Once thickened remove from heat and stir in Worcestershire sauce, mustard and cheddar cheese.....again I add a little extra cheese :) Once your cheese has melted mix noodles into sauce and pour into casserole dish. Top with buttered crumbs and cheddar cheese. I personally use cornflake crumbs and mix with a little melted butter. Bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes.



All mixed up.....waiting for topping

Ready for the oven.....

All ready for my belly....
