I wanted something quick for the family throughout the week that would be GOOD too! Hoping to add to this as time goes on so that others can find things like this too. They have to be rated between 4 and 5 stars and be able to put them on the table in 45 minutes or less to be included here.
This recipe has been a family favorite for years. With so many requests for the recipe I have done my best to take my original recipe and put it down on paper, never done before. From my family to yours--enjoy!
You can get creamed coconut in some Japanese sections of your grocery store. Try to get a kind with no additives. It comes in a solid block and is good in soups, curries, and desserts. I'm sure you could substitute milk for the water and creamed coconut if you really wanted to.
To me Fannie Farmer's recipe is the only "real" Macaroni & Cheese. It's from my 1946 edition of "Fannie Farmer's Boston Cooking School Cookbook". With time on it's side - this recipe is hands down the best for traditional, homemade baked macaroni & cheese - comfort food.
Please Note: If you use CHEAP CHEESE you will end up with a BLAND and FLAVORLESS DISH!
