Macaroni and cheese— is there anything more comforting? I know it’s still January and we’re all trying to lay off the carbs, but it’s also January. It’s cold, it’s dark, and it’s starting to feel like winter will never end.
It’s time to embrace the oversized sweaters and indulge in something cozy, like mac and cheese!
Before creating this recipe I did a lot of research. I checked out some trusted sources, tried a few of their recipes, and married all of my favorite components into this one tried and true dish.
When it comes to real mac and cheese, you have to go big or go home. Sure, I appreciate “skinny” recipes here and there, but there’s no beating a rich and creamy mac and cheese when you’ve got a craving.
This dish starts with plenty of butter, uses whole milk, and has a heck of a lot of sharp cheddar cheese mixed in. It’s baked with a crispy topping of breadcrumbs, more butter, and more cheese, and you’ll be so happy when you pull it out of the oven. And even happier after that first bite.
