Midweek Morsels: Mac and Cheese

Time for another recipe! This week, Kristina is asking for a recipe from a favorite chef. I don't really have a favorite chef (unless you count Mom and Grandma!) but I do have several favorite cookbooks, and so here's a recipe from one from one of them: Favorite Recipes from Quilters by Louise Stoltzfus.

Super Macaroni and Cheese

2 cups uncooked macaroni
1 med. onion, chopped
6 cups boiling water
3 Tb. margarine, melted
2 Tb. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 cup sour cream
1 1/4 cups milk
2 cups cheddar cheese

Cook onion and macaroni in boiling water for 15 min. Drain.

In large saucepan combine margarine, flour, salt and pepper, stirring until bubbly. Gradually stir in 3/4 cup sour cream, and milk. Stir constantly until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in 1 1/2 cups cheese. Add macaroni and onion.

Put into medium casserole dish. Spread remaining sour cream and cheese on top. Sprinkle with paprika.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 min. until hot and bubbly.


  1. Mm, this looks yummy! I've always made mac'n'cheese w/the white sauce, but I leave onions out because my toddler doesn't like that. My mother used to bake it in a casserole dish w/breadcrumbs and tomato slices on top. I never tried it w/sour cream.

  2. Oh, I love me a good mac and cheese. Thanks for this recipe!
