Try Zion’s Awesome Baked Mac and Cheese

This month I am sharing a recipe for Baked Macaroni and Cheese. In my house we like to make a cheese custard. Below is the recipe;
4-6 servings, about an hour to make

8 ounces elbow macaroni or other pasta similar in size ( about 2 cups dried pasta)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups milk (I use almond milk)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
2 cups (8 ounces) grated sharp cheese, you can use 1 cup mild and 1 cup sharp, your choice
1 teaspoon sugar
1 egg beaten

1. Cook macaroni or other pasta according to package directions. drain well and set aside
2. Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium- low heat. Add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook one minute, stirring constantly.
3. Gradually add milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Add garlic salt and sugar and cheese stirring until
cheese melts.
4. Gradually add a few spoons of hot mixture to beaten egg, then stir egg mixture into cheese sauce, stirring constantly. (This is to keep the hot
custard from cooking the egg)
5. Mix cheese sauce and macaroni together and pour into a light-greased 1 3/4- quart baking dish. Top with a little cheese and sprinkle with
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes, until brown and bubbly.
