Dad's Mac & Cheese

4 Tablespoons (Tbs) flour
4 Tbs butter
2  cups milk
1.5 lbs sharp cheddar cheese (divide equally into two parts, slice into ~.5 inch square sticks)
4 cups macaroni noodles
1 chopped onion
salt and pepper to taste


Boil macaroni according to box instructions.

Meanwhile melt butter in a large oven-safe pot.  Add flour and mix in.  Then add milk and stir around until it starts thickening.  Once the sauce is thickened add 1 block of cheese a few strips at a time until fully melted.

Once macaroni is boiled and sauce is melted add macaroni to sauce and stir in completely.  Add the chopped onion and stir in.  Put rest of cheese strips in the noodles, distributing them around the macaroni.

Bake the macaroni for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

I sprinkled Panko bread crumbs on top with 30 minutes left in the bake time to add a little more crunch.
