Recipe: Mac & Cheese

You should be impressed that I'm sharing this recipe with y'all today.

1. If I had a choice, I would choose Kraft Mac & Cheese every single time. Homemade? ... nah, I'll take my boxed mac & cheese please.
2. I didn't actually take any of these pictures. Or make this.

What happened with this recipe is that I had every intention of participating in the cooking of it. But between a 5K, several hours of shopping, and a sinus infection, I was worn out. I needed a nap. I missed my window of opportunity to make this recipe because of said nap and only snapped a picture of the ingredients before I hightailed it out of the house to go meet Patrick for dinner.


Luckily, two fantastic people {mom & dad!} took pictures of the process for me... 'cause they're awesome.

So here's the Mac & Cheese recipe that I didn't prep, didn't photograph, and didn't cook. I did eat it for Easter lunch though and it gets a thumbs up from me!

Mac & Cheese
{adapted from this recipe}

4 cups cooked elbow macaroni, drained
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup sour cream
4 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cook/drain the noodles and add the cheddar cheese while the noodles are still hot.
3. Combine all remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and add to the noodles.
4. Pour mixture into a casserole dish, top with extra cheese, and bake for 30-45 minutes.
5. Enjoy!

There you have it! Homemade mac & cheese that was surprisingly yummy.

Maybe next time I'll participate in the cooking process??


  1. You eating boxed mac and cheese? Never. Haha, that was your college staple! But, this looks delicious!

  2. Moms & dads are just the best, aren't they?! This looks so delicious - I love homemade mac and there are so many ways to do it!

  3. well at least you're honest ;) i'm not huge on mac and cheese - especially the boxed stuff, it's too cheesy for me - because it's not a staple at home like it is here.. but KC's grandma makes the BEST mac n cheese I have ever had. literally THE BEST. but since I don't like her, I don't want to ask for the recipe. so i'll try this one.

  4. Haha nice work, mom and dad!! I am so with you about boxed mac and cheese, but I also love my mom's homemade stuff. I've never used sour cream in it before, but that sounds like a great way to make it even more creamy.

  5. Super supportive blogging parents! I love mac & cheese in any form really, but I hear you about the stuff out of the box, it's classic and has a comfort factor to it.
