I decided to combine my Old Fashioned Mac & Cheese with a twist with Shortcake’s Baked Macaroni Casserole with 3 cheeses. This is what I came up with and what we had last night for dinner. It was so yummy!

1 pound macaroni – 2 c. dry 3 Tablespoons butter 2 Tablespoons flour 2 1/2 cups milk 1 egg, slightly beaten 1/2 teaspoon salt ¼ tsp. pepper 2 tbl. Dijon mustard 1 tsp.

Cook macaroni in large quantity of boiling water until done but still firm. Drain, rinse with cold water and drain again. Melt butter in saucepan. When bubbly add flour, stir until well blended. Slowly add milk. Cook, stirring frequently until sauce begins to thicken. Remove from fire, cool slightly, blend in egg, salt, pepper, mustard, hot sauce & garlic powder.
