If you’re looking for a classic comfort food that will please the whole family, look no further than this amazing Baked Mac and Cheese. Not only is it delicious, but it’s also easy to make and can be customized with your favorite mix-ins.
The Key Details and Ingredients
To start, you’ll need about a pound of elbow macaroni, a can of evaporated milk, butter, cheddar cheese, salt, pepper, and optional garlic powder. For kitchen equipment, you’ll need a large pot, a 9×13-inch baking dish, a colander, and an oven preheated to 375°F.
Begin by boiling the macaroni according to the package instructions. Once cooked, drain the noodles and set aside. In a separate pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the evaporated milk and bring to a simmer. Once the milk begins to simmer, add the cheese, salt, and pepper, stirring until the cheese has melted. Finally, add the cooked macaroni and mix well.
Pour the macaroni into the baking dish. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. To add a bit of a kick, you can sprinkle some cayenne pepper or chili powder on top before baking.
Once the Baked Mac and Cheese is done, you can garnish it with parsley, diced tomatoes, or bacon bits. Serve it up with a side of steamed broccoli or a green salad for a complete meal. Enjoy!
