Baked Mac and Cheese, Oh My!

Mac and Cheese. Perhaps the only thing that comes to your mind is microwavable Kraft, which is okay since we do not shame any type of mac and cheese. But if y’all want an elevated mac and cheese recipe that’s perfect for Instagram, read on! 

This particular recipe is a southern-style baked mac and cheese. If you really want a cheesy flavor, use more than one type of cheese. Another tip to make the recipe even better is adjusting the amount of sauce.

Starting off, cook your pasta in a pot full of boiled water. Once cooked, drain and place into a baking pan. Whisk your butter, milk, cheese, and eggs. Pour over the macaroni and top with a layer of extra cheese. Bake in an oven for about 30 minutes or until the cheese layer is lightly browned. As a garnish, chop up a bit of parsley and sprinkle it on top. The juxtaposition between the crunchy top and the creamy cheese is actual perfection.
