Mom's Mac and Cheese

This is drool worthy. The first recipe I asked my mom for and the first tastey meal I made myself. For those of you who don't know my mother, she's the best cook that ever lived. I know we all say that about our moms but the difference is you're wrong and I'm right. I'd eat this everyday if I didn't care about health.

Recipe of the Day : Mom's Mac and Cheese (6 servings)

1 hr total prep + cook time

1 lb pasta

3/4 block of Vermont Sharp Cracker Barrel cheese shredded

1/2 lb white American cheese ripped up into small pieces

1 cup half and half

1/4 cup bread crumbs

4 tbsp flour

4 tbsp butter

1/2 tbsp garlic powder

1 tsp paprika

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring water to boil and cook pasta to recommended al dente time. In separate pot, melt butter and mix in flour until bubbly. Pour in half and half and whisk until fully incorporated. Add cheese in 4 parts so melting occurs slowly and cheese sauce stays liquidy. Add paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place cooked pasta and cheese sauce in baking pan and top with bread crumbs. Bake for 25 minutes and broil for 5 to crisp top layer.

Side note: I like to sauteé ground beef and mix it into the pan before baking for more flavor!
