Baked Macaroni and Cheese

This recipe is one that I got from my ex-mother-in-law years ago.  She used to make it almost every time I came to visit and fortunately I got to take the recipe with me when my ex and I split up.  I don’t have any pictures because it has been a while since I’ve made it, but I assure you it is very yummy!

1 ½ cup uncooked elbow macaroni
¼ cup margarine or butter
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp. pepper
¼ cup flour
1 ¾ cups milk
8 oz. (8-10 slices) American cheese
chopped onion
potato chips

Cook macaroni as directed on package. Cook and stir margarine, onion, salt and pepper over medium heat until onion is slightly tender. Blend in flour with whisk. Cook over low heat stirring constantly until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove form heat. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly, on medium heat. Remove from heat. Stir in cheese until melted.

Place macaroni in ungreased 1 ½ quart casserole dish. Stir cheese sauce into macaroni. Crumble potato chips on top. Cook uncovered in 375◦ oven for 30 minutes.

Makes approximately 5 servings.
