I’m always trying new recipes searching for THE one that most resembles my grams recipe. I don’t unfortunately have her recipe.  I think I finally found it though.

1 2/3 cups dry, small elbow or shells macaroni cooked and drained
1 large bunch green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
3/4 cup 1% milk
2 tablespoons butter
2 + 1/2  cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Grease 2-quart casserole dish.
  • Combine evaporated milk, 1% milk and butter in medium saucepan.
  • Stir in flour and pepper.
  • Cook over medium-heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil.
  • Boil for 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Stir in 2 cups cheese until melted.
  • Add macaroni and onions, blending well. It will be a little soupy, but that’s okay!
  • Pour into prepared casserole dish.
  • Top with remaining cheese.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until cheese is melted and light brown.

I don’t know why but I am a terrible mac and cheese maker. My mom didn’t make it much, it was always macaroni with oil and garlic. I have not tried the evaporated milk, maybe it will help me!! 🙂
