Baked Mac & Cheese Recipe

Baking mac & cheese has been on my list for quite some time. I'm low on ingredients and wanted to make do with what I had. Plus, I needed a way to use up a pack of sliced cheese!

(Never thought I would write one up! I'm more of a toss + taste person instead of using exact measurements)

What I used:

Elbow macaroni: One package
Flour: 2 1/2 tablespoons
Butter: 4 tablespoons
Cheese: 3 cups
Milk: 1 cup
Preheat oven to 350°F

I mixed salt and flour in a small bowl while waiting for the macaroni to become tender. I used a pack of American cheese and a bag of leftover Cheddar Jack cheese. I had a total of 3 cups worth of cheese!

  • Sprayed my dish with cooking spray
  • Poured half of the macaroni into it
  • Sprinkled half of the flour/salt mixture on top.
  • Separated butter into pieces and poured over
  • Sprinkled half of the cheese on top (1 1/2 cups)

I wanted it to layer so I repeated all of this until all of it was used.

I poured one cup of milk on top of it. My dish had a lid but I'm sure foil could be used, right? I checked on it in 35 minutes and left it for another 5 without the lid on.

I really liked it. I can't wait to improve the recipe or somehow incorporate Sriracha in it to make a spicy version.

Do you have any recipes to share?
