Macaroni Cheese

Studentrecipes.Com was originally setup by James Bailey in 2004, when he was a first year student at the University of East Anglia, UK. As a student himself at that time, he struggled to find recipes that were quick and easy to cook and most importantly cheap.

Macaroni Cheese by Jenny


  • Macaroni
  • Cheese
  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Plain flour


  1. Boil some water and when the water is boiled put in the macaroni (how ever much of it that you want) and leave for 10 minutes
  2. In a pan melt a nob or two of butter.
  3. Add a splash or so of milk so that the melted butter and milk is nice and liquidy.
  4. Add some grated cheese, enough cheese that when it melts into the milk/butter  it gets quite thick.
  5. Add about a teaspoon or so of plain flour. Again just enough to make the mixture fairly thick.
  6. Have a little taste, add some more cheese if the mixture needs it to make it either more cheesey or thick. If you add too much then just add some more milk or butter. If it’s still not thick enough however just put in a little bit more flour.
  7. Basically add however much of everything to create the thickness/texture that you desire.
  8. When the pasta is done drain the water and mix in with the sauce.
  9. Some people do enjoy baked mac and cheese so to do this put mac and cheese in an oven proof dish and bake until the top goes crispy brown.
  10. Eat.



Pepper to calm the cheesy flavour.

Ketchup – cheese and tomato – the best ever combination.
