Layered Mac N Cheese

Layered Mac N Cheese
  • 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni (8 oz)
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 3 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 cup bread crumbs (I actually recommend cutting this in half if not more. There was way too much bread crumbs for everybody here)
  1. Heat over to 350 degrees. Spray a 2 qt baking dish with cooking spray. Cook and drain macaroni as directed on the package.
  2. Cook beef, ½ tsp salt, and the pepper until beef is browned. Drain.
  3. In a 2 qt saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the the flour and cook 1 minute. Stir in the milk and cook 5 - 6 minutes until the mixture thickens. Stir in the broth and remaining salt. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese. Fold in macaroni.
  4. Spoon ⅓ of the macaroni mixture into the baking dish. Top with half of the beef. Add another ⅓ of the macaroni mixture and then top with the remaining beef mixture. Add the remaining macaroni mixture and top that with the bread crumbs. Bake uncovered 25 - 30 minutes.

Beaten egg is usually brushed on biscuits before baking to give them a shiny finish or to help sprinkled sugar stuck to the tops.

Dimpled Pizza Dough

The secret to rolling pizza dough is to let it rest for 10 minutes after it is about half the size needed. Then it will easily stretch the rest of the way.
