Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in milk, salt, mustard and pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until mixture boils and thickens. Meanwhile, bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. To the milk mixture add the Cheddar and American cheeses; stir until cheese melts. Combine macaroni and cheese sauce in a 4 quart baking dish; mix well. Sprinkle with bread crumbs. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Cover with foil for 1/2 of baking time if getting too dark. Let cool 10 minutes before serving. Makes 12 servings.
