    2       c            Uncooked macaroni
    3       tb           Butter or margarine
    1       sm           Onion, finely chopped
    2       tb           Flour
    1       t            Salt
    1       t            Dry mustard
    1       t            Salt
      1/4   ts           Pepper
    2       c            Milk
    2 1/2   c            Shredded Cheddar cheese
                         -----TOPPING-----
    1                    Roll (hard crust sourdough
                         - or french roll)
    2       tb           Butter
      3/4   c            Shredded Cheddar cheese
 
   Cook macaroni according to package directions.
   
   In large saucepan, melt butter.  Add onion and cook until tender. Stir in
   flour, salt. mustard, salt and pepper. All milk slowly, stirring
   constantly, and cook until sauce is thickened and bubbly. Add cheese and
   stir until melted.  Combine cooked macaroni and cheese mixture and mix
   well. Pour into buttered casserole. (I use one that’s about 12 square).
   Top with topping and bake in 375 oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
   
   To make topping:  tear roll apart and use steel blade of food processor to
   chop into fine bread crumbs. Melt better in small saucepan then add crumbs
   and toss until covered with butter. Combine buttered crumbs with cheese and
   spread over casserole.
   
   I generally serve this with sauteed Kielbasa.
   
   Kraft’s Macaroni and Cheese is great and I always have boxes in the
   cupboard as it’s something my son can make in a hurry. However, “sure
   doesn't compare to Mom’s!”
   
   As with many of my recipes, I evolved this from one I originally found on a
   macaroni box.
