Grandma’s Special Classic Macaroni & Cheese

This is the recipe I have been using for Macaroni and Cheese since the beginning of time! Truly a classic and a staple on our family table. It’s just divine, lightly tangy and very flavorful.

I think the dry mustard makes it taste extra special. I’ll make this over and over again!

A great side dish that can be served with most anything!
