Comforting Mac N Cheese on a Rainy DayFriday, March 10, 2017
We've been having a lot of winter cold rainy days and it hasn't been so good on my morale. So, to brighten up the day a bit, I like having a comfort recipe and mac n cheese is the perfect dish!
Mac n cheese is definitely is one of my hubby's favs and I think before we met, he ate this everyday in the microwave...poor guy :D ! But we're going to kick it up a bit so this recipe calls for doing a layered pie in a casserole dish. It gives it that "gourmet" look I like!
The cheese is layered throughout the dish and it's so comforting all by itself or add a salad to it if you like. This recipe is very easy to make so here we go:
1 box of elbow macaroni
1 tsp. butter
1 tsp. kosher salt
A dash of pepper
Shredded cheddar cheese (or other favorite semi-soft cheese)
Cook macaroni in pot until nearly done (under cook 2 minutes).
Use a 2 quart casserole dish, well buttered or sprayed with oil. Layer macaroni (still hot) and cheese: a layer of macaroni, then a layer of cheese, etc., repeating layers until it reaches to about 1/2 inch from the top of the casserole dish.
Combine eggs, butter, salt and pepper in a medium bowl and stir until smooth; pour over macaroni and cheese layer. Sprinkle cheese over the top of pie. Bake at 375°F for 15 minutes, or until cheese on top is melted. Pie will continue cooking after removing from oven for an additional 5 minutes or so. Then serve in your best dainty bowls to make it look really elegant! Enjoy!
