    Recipe Introduction

    Simple recipe for those that like or usually do not like bleu cheese recipes. I found this recipe a tad dry, so I added more milk.

    List of Ingredients

    Maytag Blue Mac and Cheese

    3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon butter
    3 tablespoons flour
    3 cups milk
    Freshly ground white pepper
    1/2 pound crumbled Maytag Blue Cheese
    2 egg yolks, beaten
    Dash of Crystal Hot Sauce
    1 pound small shells, cooked until tender
    1 cup fine dried bread crumbs
    1 tablespoon olive oil


    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

    Grease a large shallow baking pan with 1 teaspoon of the butter. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, melt the remaining 3 tablespoons butter. Stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes. Whisk in the milk, 1/2 cup at a time. Season with white pepper. Cook, stirring constantly for 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the cheese and egg yolks. Season with the hot sauce and salt if needed.

    In a large mixing bowl, toss the pasta with the sauce. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. In a small mixing bowl, combine the bread crumbs and oil. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well. Sprinkle the pasta with the bread crumbs.

    Bake until the top is golden and bubbly, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for about 5 minutes before serving.


    Use any type hot sauce as in Crystal Hot Sauce ... I use Red Devil and very happy with the results
