Mac n' Cheese with a Dill Onion Twist
We seem to have homemade mac n' cheese more often than I would like. Its not too expensive and not really hard to make; and makes great left overs. But sometimes macaronis and cheese can get a bit boring; so tonight I changed it up a bit. If you would rather have the normal you can omit the onion and the dill.
- 1# box of elbow macaroni, uncooked
- ½ cup margarine or butter
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- 2 tsp dill weed
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 3½ cups milk
- 16oz Medium Cheddar (or your choice).
- Cook macaroni as directed on the box. 9-11 minutes.
- Cook and stir margarine, onion, salt and pepper over medium heat until onion is slightly tender.
- Stir in flour.
- Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and bubbly; remove from heat.
- Stir in milk.
- Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute; remove from heat .
- Stir in cheese until melted (or you can on low heat but don't leave it alone).
- Place cooked macaroni in ungreased 2 quart casserole dish. Stir in cheese sauce into macaroni and sprinkle dill weed in while stirring.
