Gather around a hot dish of baked macaroni and cheese that's made with Sargento® Shredded  Cheddar Cheese. The crispy baked crust will make every serving perfectly delightful.

  • 1 lb. elbow macaroni
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 cups (16 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese - Traditional Cut

  • 8 oz. Sargento® Sliced Muenster Cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (optional)
  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add flour; cook and stir 1 minute. Add milk and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat; simmer 2 minutes or until sauce thickens. Stir in 3 cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese and all of the Mild Cheddar Cheese until melted. Stir in cooked macaroni.
  2. Spread 4 cups macaroni mixture into two 8 or 9-inch baking dishes or pans. Layer 1 cup Mozzarella and half of Muenster cheese slices over macaroni.
