Mac and Cheese with Ham

Celebrate National Macaroni and Cheese Day!

Here’s Alec’s favorite!

2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons flour
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded American cheese
2 cups hot cooked macaroni
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1½  cups cooked, diced ham
1 tablespoon horseradish
1 tablespoon prepared mustard

In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter; add flour and stir until smooth and bubbly. Gradually stir in milk. Continue cooking, stirring, until sauce just begins to bubble and sauce has thickened.

Combine sauce with cheese, hot cooked macaroni and salt; mix well. Pour into buttered casserole dish. Combine remaining ingredients; sprinkle over the top of the macaroni, pressing into the mixture lightly. Bake at 350F for about 20 to 25 minutes.
