  • Summary

    To me Fannie Farmer's recipe is the only "real" Macaroni & Cheese. It's from my 1946 edition of "Fannie Farmer's Boston Cooking School Cookbook". With time on it's side - this recipe is hands down the best for traditional, homemade baked macaroni & cheese - comfort food. Please Note: If you use CHEAP CHEESE you will end up with a BLAND and FLAVORLESS DISH!

    Ingredients

    • 1 (8 ounce) package macaroni
    • 4 tablespoons butter
    • 4 tablespoons flour
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 cup cream
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • fresh ground black pepper, to taste
    • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded good quality
    • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, buttered
