  • 2 cups elbow macaroni
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
  • Breadcrumbs (optional for topping)


Step 1: Cook the Macaroni

In a large pot, bring water to a boil and add the macaroni. Cook according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the cooked macaroni and set it aside.

Step 2: Prepare the Cheese Sauce

In the same pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, add the flour and whisk continuously for about 1 minute until well combined.

Add milk gradually while whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Continue cooking and stirring until the mixture thickens and comes to a simmer.

Add shredded cheddar cheese, salt, and black pepper. Stir until the cheese melts completely and the sauce becomes smooth and creamy.

Step 3: Combine Macaroni and Cheese Sauce

Add the cooked macaroni to the cheese sauce and stir well until all the macaroni is coated with the creamy cheese sauce.

Step 4: Optional Topping

If desired, you can add a crunchy topping to your mac and cheese. Sprinkle breadcrumbs evenly over the top of the macaroni mixture.

Step 5: Bake (Optional)

If you prefer a baked version, transfer the mac and cheese to a baking dish. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and bake for about 20 minutes or until the top is golden brown and crispy.

Step 6: Serve and Enjoy!

Your KFC-style mac and cheese is now ready to be served. You can enjoy it as a main dish or as a side with fried chicken or any other favorite meal. Grab a fork, dig in, and savor every cheesy bite!
