5 Minute Homemade Mac and Cheese

Tags: , , ,

Last week was raining and I knew just what I wanted to whip up for dinner….a quick and easy homemade mac and cheese.

Who needs a box mix when you can have homemade mac in 5 minutes?!  I will say, that I had cooked pasta in my fridge from a previous dinner, so make sure you cook some extra pasta to have ready for this recipe.

This is too easy to not try for yourself, give it a go and let me know if you love it as much as we do!!

Can you even handle all of the ingredients you need?  I don’t know if I can.

Pour in your cheese pleeeease.

Add your milk.  I used whole milk here.

Every last drop!

Add some salt.

….and freshly ground black pepper.

Grab a spoon and stir it all together.

Cover loosely with plastic wrap and microwave for 3 minutes.  Stir and microwave for an additional 2 minutes.

Stir until creamy dreamy smooth.

Oh yah!!

Dig in!

    I found that using packaged yellow American cheese gives you a stronger flavor.

    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net
    from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type
    on numerous websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
