Beefy Mac & Cheese

I apologize for what will be sporadic posting for the next few days. This time between Christmas and New Year's is very hectic in my family.

I made beefy mac & cheese last week. I think it was Thursday's dinner. This is why I can't go too long without posting. Anyway, it was basically my usual mac & cheese recipe only with beef added:


I cooked some onions, garlic and half a green pepper in a little oil, then added the beef (which was actually some leftover meatloaf mix so it was beef, pork and veal). Once that was cooked I seasoned it with salt, pepper and a heaping tablespoon of Dijon mustard. The sauce was made with butter, flour, milk, salt, pepper and paprika. I added about 3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese and then mixed in the cooked pasta and the beef mixture. It all went into a greased baking dish and was sprinkled with bread crumbs cooked in butter. It cooked in a 350-degree oven for about 30 minutes until it was bubbly and delicious.
Pin It!
