Classic Macaroni and Cheese

An easy recipe for a homemade classic. The key to keeping the sauce creamy is to melt the cheese at a low heat while stirring constantly. Serve with a good portion of steamed veggies for a complete meal that no one can complain about.

Tip: If your family doesn’t like their mac & cheese, baked, go ahead and skip the baking step and eat it right out of the pan.

  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ¾ cup evaporated skim milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
