Pyrex Mac N' Cheese

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

It was so fun putting all of that  new Pyrex to use. Sometimes people ask if I actually use my Pyrex, and it is a joy for me use my lovely dishes.  Here is the recipe if you are interested for this wonderful Mac N' Cheese.

Mac and Cheese
  • 4 cups Dried Macaroni

  • ¼ cups (1/2 Stick Or 4 Tablespoons) Butter

  • ¼ cups All-purpose Flour

  • 2-½ cups Whole Milk (I use 1 1/2 cups skim milk and 1 cup cream)

  • 2 teaspoons (heaping) Dry Mustard, More If Desired (I am gonna try half that amount)

  • 1 whole Egg Beaten

  • 1 pound Cheese, Grated (I used a combo of sharp cheddar, mild cheddar, and Monterrey jack)

  • ½ teaspoons Salt, More To Taste

  • ½ teaspoons Seasoned Salt, More To Taste

  • ½ teaspoons Ground Black Pepper

    1. Cook macaroni until very firm. Macaroni should be too firm to eat right out of the pot. Drain.
    2. In a small bowl, beat egg.
    3. In a large pot, melt butter and sprinkle in flour. Whisk together over medium-low heat. Cook mixture for five minutes, whisking constantly. Don’t let it burn.
    4. Pour in milk, add mustard, and whisk until smooth. Cook for five minutes or until very thick. Reduce heat to low.
    5. Take 1/4 cup of the sauce and slowly pour it into beaten egg, whisking constantly to avoid cooking eggs. Whisk together till smooth.
    6. Pour egg mixture into sauce, whisking constantly. Stir until smooth.
    7. Add in cheese and stir to melt.
    8. Add salts and pepper. Taste sauce and add more salt and seasoned salt as needed! DO NOT UNDERSALT.
    9. Pour in drained, cooked macaroni and stir to combine.
    10. Serve immediately (very creamy, which is how I am serving it next time) or pour into a buttered 9 x 13 inch baking dish, top with extra cheese, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly and golden on top.
    We also made some yummy french fries to go with the Mac N' Cheese. Real healthy ha?

    1. looks like a little bit of heaven! thanks for sharing :) and yes, I LOVE using my pyrex, why have it & not use it. Well, some pieces are shelf only!

    2. I don't own a piece that I haven't used - everything tastes better in Pyrex!!

    3. I use my Pyrex all the time. I should have taken a photo of the chicken casserole I baked last night in my Spring Blossom pan! Yum!

    4. Yum! When I was a little girl, my neighbor girl and I made macaroni and cheese in pyrex-just like mom! Only problem is we used it one the stove TOP! Yikes! :)
