Stovetop Macaroni & Cheese (VIDEO)

Stovetop Macaroni & Cheese
I previously shared this Macaroni and Cheese recipe as one of my top ten recipes of all time. I bring it to you once more because I wanted to film a cooking video for the Modern Martha YouTube channel, and cooking an all-time favorite seemed like a safe route! While my cooking video attempt certainly isn’t award winning, I don’t think it was a total disaster either, and that in itself is quite the success. I’m slightly embarrassed, but not so embarrassed that I’ll never attempt it again. Maybe one day I will master this art! Let’s hope for both of us that it’s sooner rather than later.

Stovetop Macaroni & Cheese This version of the recipe is halved from what I previously shared. I make the full recipe when I’m cooking for my family of 4 or 5, but when it’s just me and Xavier, the half recipe is plenty!

Stovetop Macaroni & Cheese
  • 8oz (about 2 cups) macaroni elbows
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ¾ tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cups half and half
  • 8 oz sharp cheddar, diced into small cubes
  • ¼ tsp worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ tsp hot pepper sauce (I used Sriracha)
  1. Boil macaroni according to package directions. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in medium saucepan. Let the butter pop for about 30 seconds. Add flour and stir until smooth. Add half and half. Heat on medium until sauce comes to a low boil and thickens slightly, stirring continuously.
  3. Remove saucepan from heat and add cheese cubes, stirring until melted in.
  4. Add worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce.
  5. Pour sauce over cooked macaroni.
