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.

Whoops.

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}



Ingredients
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

Directions
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??

  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.
