A (REVOLUTIONARY!) WAY TO MAKE MAC & CHEESE

September 12, 2016

I am still obsessing about this and refuse to come down. It is one pot. It does not require butter (but I toss in a little for taste). It yields the perfect hearty, baked mac and cheese texture I love so much more than the thin, liquid-y type of mac and cheese that makes me sad. All on the stove top!

Basically, the pasta is cooked IN THE MILK. And, there is a surprise dash of mustard powder and nutmeg that is next level.

    All the liquid boils down? Don’t need to pour any off?

      Exactly!

  • Excited to try this one, but to be fair, it is never optional to top with bacon. It must be done.
