Mac & Cheese with Kielbasa

Mac & cheese with kielbasa is always one of my favorite treats. I love mac & cheese and this is my favorite version of it. Kielbasa is also a nice protein to have with it since it’s spices are so flavorful and compliment the mac & cheese perfectly.

  1. Cook 1 1/2 cup of macaroni to al dente and drain.
  2. While that is cooking, preheat oven to 375 F. Dice 1 small onion (1/2 cup) and cook in a large frying pan with 4 Tbsp of butter until translucent.
  3. Remove Kielbasa from packaging, remove skin, cut into 1 1/2″ pieces, place into a casserole dish, add 1/4″ of water and set aside.
  4. Once onions are translucent, add 4 Tbsp of flour stir to combine, then add 2 1/2 cups of milk. Heat to a slight simmer.
  5. While that is heating, cube one block of sharp cheese (8 oz) by cutting the block in half the short way, then slicing into slices 1/4 inch thick. Once milk is simmering, remove milk from heat and immediately add cheese and start stirring until all cheese is melted.
  6. Place drained macaroni into a 2 quart size or bigger backing/casserole dish. Then pour the hot cheese over top and carefully stir.
  7. Add Kielbasa to oven. Bake for 15 minutes, then stir. Return to oven for another 15 minutes. Cook with the mac & cheese. Bake your mac & cheese for 30 minutes until the top has begun to brown and is bubbling hot. Serve together.
