(by Shirley McNevich)

8oz. elbow macaroni (cooked and drained according to box directions)
1/2 lb. good quality hot dogs (cut into coin shaped pieces)
2 1/4 cups shredded Velveeta cheese OR your favorite type of shredded cheese
5 TBSP butter
1 onion (finely chopped)
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

In a bowl add drained macaroni, hot dog pieces and 2 cups of the shredded cheese--toss to mix. In a saucepan over medium heat add butter and onions--cook/stir until onions are tender. While whisking, slowly add flour. Remove from heat--add milk slowly while whisking. Once all milk is in the mixture return it to the heat--add salt and pepper. Keep whisking until mixture just starts to boil. Remove from heat--pour the hot milk mixture over the macaroni mixture--stir carefully to coat. Pour the whole mixture into a greased casserole dish. Sprinkle the other 1/2 cup shredded cheese over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted and browned.
