Jackie's Homemade Mac 'N Cheese


1 1/2 C. uncooked macaroni
8 oz. Cheddar Cheese, cubed
1 sm. onion, chopped (optional)
2 TBS. butter
2 TBS. flour
2 C. Milk
salt & pepper to taste

Cook Mac until almost done. Melt butter in medium saucepan. Sauté onion in butter.
Add flour, whisk until blended. Add the milk a few TBS. at a time and whisk in each
time until well blended. (This avoids lumps) lower to a medium heat and whisk often to
avoid burning at bottom of pan. When sauce starts to thicken and bubble add cheese, salt
and pepper. Stir and cook until cheese is melted. Put Mac. in to 8x8 or 9x9 pan. Pour
sauce over top. Sprinkle paprika on top if desired. bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 mins or
until bubbly around edges.
