Baked Mac and Cheese

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by melmorr

this is my hubby's great grandma's recipe. Most mac and cheese recipes call for cooking the noodles first, I am usually pressed for time so this recipe is a great alternative. Just throw it together and pop in the oven.

No stars...this really wasn't good. The milk boiled up and out of the pan while baking, eventually all disappearing. The cheese looked curdled and lumpy at the end of cooking time, and the noodles, while cooked, were basically bare. I had high hopes for this, but it just didn't work for us.

  2. Place in 9X13 baking dish, cover with shredded cheese, pour milk over all. Salt and pepper if desired.
  3. I used to stir periodically but my husband told me he likes the crunchy bits from not stirring.
