Stovetop Macaroni & Cheese

Macaroni & Cheese

  • 8 oz macaroni or shell pasta
  • 2tb butter
  • 8 slices American cheese
  • 1/2 tb onion powder
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Cook macaroni according to directions on package. Drain and leave in colander.
  2. In the same pot, add the butter, American cheese, onion powder, sour cream, and milk.
  3. Stir constantly over medium heat until cheese is melted and creamy.
  4. Add the cheddar cheese and stir until melted.
  5. Return macaroni to the pot and mix with cheese sauce.
  6. Salt and pepper to taste.

Variation: Add some ranch dressing mix. The first time I made this I used the end of a container of sour cream that had been made into ranch and green onion dip. This gave it an additional ranch flavor. I made it again to measure everything but made it straight. My husband preferred the ranch variation and thought the basic version had a strong sour cream aftertaste. I didn’t notice this, but he doesn’t like sour cream.
