Really awesome mac and cheese, great for a crowd or just yourself and a few good friends.
Cook macaroni according to directions. Butter a 9 x 13 casserole dish and put the macaroni in that.
Heat half-and-half almost to boiling and set aside. Melt in a saucepan, add flour and stir together to make a roux. Add the hot half-and-half and whisk together until it has thickened. Add the spices, whisk together and then add the shredded cheeses and cornstarch. Stir together until melted and the sauce has thickened a little. Pour over the cooked macaroni and Velveeta cheese cubes. Mix together gently.
Combine topping ingredients (panko and melted butter) and sprinkle buttered Panko bread crumbs on top. Bake in a 350ºF oven for 45 minutes or until nice and bubbly and hot. Take out and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
Serves about 8 people or 2 adults and 2 teenage boys.
Feel free to customize the toppings to your taste. I like my wrap with avocado, tomato and lettuce while my husband likes the chicken on a bun as a club sandwich. The real key to this recipe is the marinade.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
