My friend brought this for a potluck dinner we had at work. Needless to say, "it did'nt last long." Warning:it is very addictive. Also, if your on a 'low carb' diet it's great on celery instead of crackers.
I got this over two years ago from a Website caled "TipWorld." I have tried many mac and cheese recipes over the years, even some that were my Mother's recipes, but this has to be my absolute favorite! Make sure you use the sharpest white cheddar cheese you can find. This recipe can also be doubled-use a 9x13 inch pyrex or glass dish.
From Company's Coming Slow Cooker Recipes. I love to make this when my kids have skating lessons. I can throw it into the crockpot after school and when lessons are over, dinner is waiting. If you are lucky enough to have two crock pots, you can have a glazed ham going in the other one and your dinner is ready to go!
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!
Where I grew up the standard macaroni and cheese was creamy, like the stuff that comes in a box. But my mom always made the custard version. Some places I've lived that was the usual kind and the creamy one was the oddity. Wherever you live, this is delicious! Make it plain or try one of the variations.
This is a wonderfully seasoned cottage cheese that a local restaurant served. My family has fits if I make steak and do not fix this! It's also great on a tossed salad...or blended for a "lowfat" dip. Even people who normally do not like cottage cheese find they enjoy this.
This dish has become a family holiday favorite. It's so easy and quick though, that you might want to serve it on a regular basis. I've made this with both regular and low fat ingredients and have been pleased with the results each time, though I wouldn't suggest using fat free products.
