Colby Cheese Melt & White Cheddar Macaroni

You will need:

  • sliced bread8 slices of bread
  • butter4 tablespoons of butter
  • Colby cheese slices8 slices of Colby cheese
  • elbow macaroni2 cups elbow macaroni
  • shredded White Cheddar cheese2 cups of shredded White Cheddar cheese
  • milk2 cups of milk
  • all-purpose flour2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepperSalt and pepper to taste


  1. First, gather all your ingredients. Start by making the Colby cheese melt. Take your slices of bread and spread about half a tablespoon of butter on one side of each slice. Then, place a slice of Colby cheese between two slices of bread, making sure the buttered sides are facing out.
  2. Next, heat a skillet over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, add the sandwiches. Cook each side for about 2-3 minutes or until they're golden brown and the cheese has melted. The buttered side of the bread should create a nice, crispy crust.
  3. While the sandwiches are cooking, you can start on the White Cheddar macaroni. Cook the macaroni according to the instructions on the package. Once cooked, drain the macaroni and set it aside for later.
  4. In a separate saucepan, melt the remaining butter over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, stir in the flour until it forms a smooth paste. Then, gradually whisk in the milk. Continue to cook this mixture, stirring constantly, until it comes to a boil. Once it's boiling, let it cook for about 2 minutes or until it has thickened.
  5. After the sauce has thickened, remove it from the heat. Stir in the shredded White Cheddar cheese until it's completely melted and the sauce is smooth. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Finally, stir the cooked macaroni into the cheese sauce until it's well coated. Serve the Colby cheese melt with a side of the White Cheddar macaroni. Enjoy this cheesy feast!
