Ingredients
  • 4 cups Dried Macaroni
  • 1 whole Egg Beaten
  • ¼ cup (1/2 Stick or 4 Tablespoons) Butter
  • ¼ cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 2-1/2 cups Whole Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Dry Mustard, More if desired
  • 1 pound Cheese, grated
  • ½ teaspoon Salt, more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • Optional Spices: Cayenne Pepper, Paprika, Thyme
Instructions
  1. Cook macaroni until very firm. Macaroni should be too firm to eat right out of the pot. Drain.
  2. In a small bowl, beat egg. In a large pot, melt butter and sprinkle in flour. Whisk together over medium-low heat. Cook mixture for five minutes, whising constantly. Don't let it burn. Pour in milk, add mustard and whisk until smooth. Cook for five minutes until very thick.
  3. Reduce heat to low. Take ¼ cup of the sauce and slowly pour it into beaten egg, whisking constantly to avoid cooking eggs. Whisk together until smooth.
  4. Pour egg mixture into sauce, whisking constantly. Stir until smooth. Add in cheese and stir to melt. Add salt and pepper. Taste sauce and add more salt and seasoned salt as needed.
  5. Pour in drained, cooked macaroni and stir to combine.
  6. Serve immediately (very creamy).
Notes
Note: This recipe adds a spicy kick to your mac and cheese. If you prefer a more moderate taste, tone it down with less seasoned salt and ground pepper.
