Today I am excited to bring you this delicious, super easy mac and cheese recipe!
How often do you eat mac and cheese at your house? I can’t say that I eat it as often as I’d like, but my kids are more than familiar with the dish. Since I make them their own dinner every night, and macaroni and cheese is one thing they both love; it makes an appearance on their plates probably three times a week. I’m not afraid to admit that often times it’s frozen mac and cheese from TJs or boxed mac and cheese because I’m scrambling to make their food in about 15 minutes, but when I have time I make them this homemade version. It is so worth the little bit of extra effort!
When I think of macaroni and cheese, a container of cottage cheese is definitely not the first thing that comes to mind. When I found Chuck’s Favorite Mac and Cheese recipe, I was skeptical but had to try it based on its simplicity and all the great reviews. I wasn’t disappointed. I altered the recipe a bit to add milk, use reduced-fat (not fat free) ingredients, and eliminate the bread crumb topping. (That is my personal preference, but if you like a crunchy topping on your mac, mix 1/4 c. melted butter with 1 c. bread or cracker crumbs and sprinkle over the top before baking.) The whole family loves this recipe and requests it often. I think my kids would even choose it over the boxed stuff, which is a pretty big compliment coming from them. I hope your family enjoys this easy mac and cheese too!
