Macaroni and Cheese

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Luvs 2 Cook

I know the ingredients sound strange but this the creamiest mac and cheese I have had. I do add more cheese but that is to your liking. I also have found the more variety of cheese the better it is. I usually use extra sharp cheddar, sharp cheddar, mild cheddar, and monteray jack.

Great- creamy, cheesy, and fast, which is exactly what I needed after a long day and with hungry kids waiting. Some preferred theirs directly from the pan to their plates-- it was good that way, too. Personally, I like a little crunch on top, so I used a combination of breadcrumbs and french fried onions on my little corner of the baking dish. ;) I divided this between two 8x8 pans, and the second one will go to my sister along with the ham dinner I'm taking her tomorrow. I'll definitely keep this recipe in mind when I need a quick and easy side!
