I think I’ve gone overboard. In the best way though! This by far the cheesiest Mac and Cheese I’ve ever had! I mean, doesn’t your teeth ache just looking at all of the cheese in the photo?? I managed to retain that creamy texture too. If you can’t already tell, I’m damn proud of this ooey gooey goodness!
I love boiling the elbow macaroni in chicken broth. It adds a ton of flavor. It almost taste like the mac and cheese contains meat. It helps reduce the amount of seasoning you have to add later on.
I never ever rinse pasta. I always stir in a small amount of butter. This stops the cooking process. Yes, sometimes food will continue to “cook” even after being removed from heat.
I use a total of 5 different cheeses in this recipe. Feel free to use your favorites. I add in half of the cheese while the mac and cheese is cooking over the burner. Then, I sprinkle on the rest over the top in the casserole dish.
Look at that crisp cheese pull! The topping is not too crunchy, it’s just right! The perfect coverage for that creamy, cheesy stuff underneath. If you like a brown, almost burnt, looking topping, just leave it in the oven until it reaches the desired look.
I have to warn you. One spoon of this is at least 3,000 calories. So, I recommend eating it at the gym.
I needed to make mac and cheese for church this past Sunday. Of course, I woke up late. Typical, Coop. I had to figure out a way to cook while I dressed. Heeeeey, Crock pot! I rarely use the thing. That’s about to change! This mac and cheese is my new favorite! Easy, sinfully creamy, and it allowed me to cook while I did my make up! Look at God!!!
You can set it at high and cook for 1 hour. Or, set it at low and cook for 2. When it’s done, just turn the dial to the “Warm” setting and it will stay perfectly hot and creamy throughout dinner. Clean up will be easy breezy too, because you won’t have any leftovers. More slow cooker recipes are in our near future, Cookies…
Lobster mac and cheese is delightful. But, here in Louisiana, crawfish is king, baby! I wanted to show you how I make easy, quick, and cheap mac and cheese! But, crawfish were on sale at the store, so ding, ding…crawfish mac and cheese! Watch me tease you….
Easy right? It’s completely sinful, but God is sooo good! So, is this recipe. Try it.
I received a request from a Cookie for an easy, kid-friendly meal. This is it! Cheeseburger Macaroni. It’s also a guilty pleasure of mine. I love this stuff! Brings me back to my High School days. I used to reeeeally think I was doing something by cooking Hamburger Helper! Chile, you could not tell me I wasn’t a chef! lol But, what really makes this recipe so great is that it calls for ingredients you probably already have at home! And what kid doesn’t love Mac & Cheese?! Just serve it with some corn or a salad and you have a bomb dinner in less than 30 mins! You’re welcome, my darlings! Keep those requests coming!!
Oh, I also filmed a recipe tutorial for this, so check it out!
