Luby's Macaroni and Cheese

When Madison was little she loved, loved, loved Luby's macaroni and cheese. My mom found this recipe in a Luby's cookbook and would make it for Madison every time we came to visit. It's kind of an odd recipe- and is definitely something you need a little arm strength for- but my mom swore by it!

8 ounces elbow macaroni
2 T dry milk
2 T flour
1 T butter, melted
1 1/4 cup boiling water
3 cups shredded American cheese
1/4 t salt

Cook and drain macaroni. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, mix dry milk, flour, and butter. Gradually add boiling water, stirring constantly. Add 1 1/2 cup cheese and continue beating till smooth. Stir in macaroni, 1 cup of remaining cheese and salt. Transfer to lightly greased 2 quart baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 1 minute or until cheese melts.

  1. What great luck for me that you posted this!
    I was asked to bring "homemade macaroni and cheese" to my next mentoring session by my kids.
    All I've ever made was Kraft MacNCheese.
    Your timing couldn't have been better!

  2. That little girl that lives here, called Luby, will LOVE the name of this recipe!
