Seriously, Mac & Cheese is one of my favourite things in the world!
It's comfort food at it's finest!
As promised over on my Instagram Stories, today I am sharing the recipe for our all time favourite comfort food.
There have been times (many times) when I have woken up in the middle of the night with hunger pains for this stuff!
I will admit, I often cave and find myself in the kitchen scarfing down a bowl at 2:00am. Calories between 1:00am and 5:00am don't count, RIGHT?
Okay, so here's the recipe. You can find the original recipe HERE - I've made some tweaks to the one below. You can't go wrong with either!
HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk
1/2 lb. (8 oz.) VELVEETA, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 cups elbow macaroni, cooked
1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Breadcrumbs (about 1/4 cup)
HERE'S WHAT YOU DO
- Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Melt 3 Tbsp. butter in medium sized pan on medium heat. Gradually whisk in flour (about 2 minutes) stirring constantly.
Gradually stir in milk.
Add the VELVEETA cheese. Stir and Combine.
Add the cooked macoroni - Mix it up!
Grease square casserole dish with butter (I use a paper towel and wipe it all over the dish)
Spoon the macoroni into the pan; sprinkle with cheddar cheese
Melt remaining butter; toss with bread crumbs (use as much as you need to create a nice crumble) Sprinkle over casserole.
Bake 20 min. or until heated through
