Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 2-1/2 cups grated sharp cheese
  • 8 ounces Velveeta cheese (cut into pieces)
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 16-17 Ounces macaroni (cooked and drained (al dente)

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a medium pan, melt the butter and quickly add the flour, salt, pepper, and mustard. Continue stirring with a whisk until the mixture is smooth and blended. Keep stirring, add the milk, then start adding the different cheeses (save 1/2 cup cheddar cheese for the top) and stir until melted. Remove from heat. Add the cooked and drained macaroni and blend until macaroni is covered with cheese. Scoop the mixture into a 9″ by 13″ inch greased pan and sprinkle with the 1/2 cup of cheese you set aside. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs depending on the quantity you desire on top. Bake uncovered for 20-30 minutes or until the casserole starts to bubble.
