At my house, you will often find boxes of macaroni and cheese in my pantry. It is easy to cook and everyone likes it, so I keep it as a staple at all times. I often get bored with making macaroni and cheese from a box, so I will make my baked macaroni and cheese recipe that is really a hit, especially with me!
Baked Macaroni and Cheese Recipe:
If you want to put a twist on macaroni and cheese at your house, try baking it. If you have never tried baked macaroni and cheese you might not to eat it any other way. This is a perfect dish for potlucks, banquets, etc.

Very similar to how I make it… I think next time I will try using this recepie! I normally just put the cheddar cheese and then sprinkle paprika on top to get the crusty taste/look.

This looks so good! My great aunt used to make homemade mac & cheese and this recipe brings back fond memories.
This looks so yummy! I’m craving some mac and cheese now!

This looks amazing! I love homemade Mac & Cheese! Yum!
I love homemade Mac and Cheese, I won’t eat any other kind. My kids will eat the stuff in the blue box, I won’t touch it. Homemade is just so creamy and I love a nice top crust. I used to use elbows now I use Cavatappi, give it try they are like an elbow with just more twists!
