Make cheese sauce

  1. In a nonstick saucepan melt butter and mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic 1/2 cup milk, salt and pepper
  2. Add all cheeses and stir constantly melting the cheese(the cheese is going to ball up, once you add milk it will begin to melt into liquid cheese sauce)
  3. You will want to add milk by 1/2 increments until you achieve the perfect mac n cheese consistency(not too thick… not to thin)

Put it together and bake

  1. Pour cheese over pasta and steak mixture… stir coating all pasta and steak
  2. Place in a greased 9×13 pan
  3. Cover with cheddar cheese
  4. Bake in preheated 350 oven for 15 minutes
  5. Bake until cheese is melted, bubbly and golden brown(you may want to broil to get a golden brown crust)
  6. Bake your Texas toast according to package directions
  7. Serve immediately in a bowl and garnish with a few green onions

There is something about eating a cheesy dish in a bowl, it just adds that sense of comfort and it makes it yummy, also it is easier to eat(I think so anyway) If you would rather eat on a plate go ahead this is just a personal preference 🙂
