Egg Noodles Mac and cheese Tips:

For the roux, add milk very slowly

When you make this recipe, to start the sauce, you’ll be making a roux. A roux is a combination of butter, flour and milk that helps thicken-up sauces. In this case, the roux helps thicken up the cheese sauce for your Egg Noodles Mac and Cheese.

When making a roux, it’s very important that you add the milk very slowly. For this recipe’s sake, you need two cups of whole milk. To add the milk slowly, I added the milk 1/4 cup at a time. I would mix until everything was well-combined, then added my next 1/4 cup. This means, that you’d be adding 1/4 cups of milk eight times.

When it comes to cooking sauces, heat and temperature are essential! When you’re making the cheese sauce to this baked mac and cheese recipe, be sure to keep the temperature at medium.
