Ramie's Recipe - Mac & Cheese

I love LeRoy Butler and I really love his Macaroni & Cheese, and I really enjoyed making it with him This morning on Real Milwaukee on Fox 6! But if you're trying to keep it light, try my own Mac & Cheese recipe, but still go out and get LeRoy's cookbook, "Leaping Into the Kitchen" and help out the LeRoy Butler Foundation...


  • 3 cups elbow macaroni (prepared by package instructions)
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 cups 1% milk
  • 3/4 cup fontina cheese (shredded)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan
  • 1/2 cup velveeta (cut into chunks)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 strips bacon (from Roberts'), chopped, cooked well, and drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsely

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Once melted, gradually add in flour, constantly whisking until mixture turns light brown, 1-2 minutes (DO NOT WALK AWAY AND DO NOT STOP WHISKING!).  Gradually add in milk and bring to a boil while whisking, until the mixture is smooth and the flour is incorporated, 2-3 minutes.

Turn heat down to low and add in cheeses, salt, pepper, and bread crumbs.  Stir and cook until well-blended and thickened.  Remove from heat and stir in macaroni.

Pour Mac & Cheese mixture into a 2-qt pan sprayed with cooking spray.  Top with bread crumbs and parsley and bake for 30-40 minutes, until bubbly and golden brown on top.
