Stove Top Mac-N-Cheese by Alton Brown
35 mins (prep 10, cooking 25)
9 ingredients
6-8 servings
This is from Alton Brown's Good Eats show and it's an easy and good mac n cheese recipe to have on hand. You won't be buying the boxed stuff again after eating this. (edited 8/15/2008 - This was initially posted with 3/4 tsp of dry mustard but after making this a few times I agree with the reviewer that said this amount is too much so I've reduced it to 1/2 tsp.)
