Mac and Cheese
1lb. large macaroni noodles, cooked al dente (about 7 minutes)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack
In a medium pot, melt butter and stir in flour. Stir until the flour is absorbed into the butter, about 2 minutes. A roux will form.
Slowly stir in milk and cream. Let sauce thicken over medium heat, about 5 minutes. Add salt, mustard and cayenne pepper.
Add cheeses to sauce and stir until cheese is melted.
Add macaroni and stir to combine. Taste for seasoning.
