Skillet Macaroni and Cheese

A really tasty mac & cheese that requires no milk!! Quick and delicious. One of my all-time favorites. Feel free to try different cheeses and vegetables, too! I like to use a combination of Gruyere and Swiss cheeses with 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms instead of the Cheddar. Adding crispy bacon to the original recipe is very good, too.

  1. A Good Thing
    Made this last night for a quick dinner. Very pleasing comfort food here. I fried up some homemade bacon bits and let them sit while I completed this yummy mac & cheese dish. For the veggies, I used purple onion and a bit of green and red bell pepper. I sauteed them for just a minute or two and then added the macaroni to the pan. After I added the water, I found it took about 15 or 20 minutes to cook the pasta to perfection. In the end, I added Edam (New Zealand) cheese and olives. A sprinkle and light stir of the bacon bits and my husband raced through 2 large bowls. At first he decided it was a "4" but upon finishing the second bowl, changed his rating to a "definite 5!". (-: Made for PAC, 2009! Well done, Evil Step Mom.
