Sarah Mead’s Reuben Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Made an old favorite for dinner, Reuben Mac n' Cheese. It came out soooo good this time that I wanted to share the recipe with you. Mangia! - 12/29/17

Boil half a box of elbow macaroni until slightly under-done, drain
Carmelize half a chopped onion (and a jalapeño, if you like)
Chop 1 cup of pastrami into small chunks

Make a Mustard Swiss Cheese Sauce:
In a saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter
Add 1/4 cup flour, whisk for 1 minute
Add dry seasoning (1/4-1/2 teaspoons each of salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne, mustard powder), whisk for 30 seconds
Add 2 cups of milk, whisk until thickened, apx. 5 mins
Add 2-3 tablespoons of Dijon and/or yellow mustard, whisk in
Add 1 1/2 cups shredded swiss cheese, stir until melted

Add pastrami, onions, and macaroni to sauce, stir to combine
Pour into a baking dish and bake at 375 for 20 mins
Add breadcrumb/melted butter/garlic powder topping, if desired, broil 5 mins

If you want to go all the way, stir in a couple tablespoons of bacon jam at the sauce stage and use rye breadcrumbs for the topping.
