My mom made an amazing mac & cheese (not a healthy one by any means but oh so good), I wish I had the recipe but here are the basics. You will need a loaf pan to bake it in.
1 package elbow macaroni, slightly undercooked
1 - 2 blocks extra sharp cheddar, cubed (I think my mom used Cracker Barrel Vermont white)
butter - sorry not sure how much she used but enough to lightly coat macaroni
milk - not sure amount since she added it until it came to the right level in the pan
Cook macaroni until slightly undercooked. Drain and put the macaroni in the loaf pan or a bowl. Toss with butter until macaroni is coated. Add cheese cubes and toss (cheese is not made into a sauce). Put in loaf pan if you were using a bowl (my mom could do it in the loaf pan and only lose a couple noodles - cooks snack). Add milk up to about 1/2 - 1 inch below pan edge. Cover with foil and bake till cheese is melty and everything is hot. Remove from oven and let cool slightly, Serve.
I always put black pepper on mine. The next day we would heat the leftovers in a pan with a little added milk until hot.
I loved this mac & cheese, I played with the recipe awhile back and just eyeballed everything. I would love to find the true recipe but all I've ever found on the internet are the cheese sauce versions which this isn't. After the holidays I may try to play around again and create a version that works with my eating plan and calorie range.
Today is the first day in the journey to a healthier you!
