If you read my post this past Friday about the upcoming Super Bowl with the E-A-G-L-E-S playing, you may have caught me mentioning the easiest Mac & Cheese recipe ever. I promised, and I am here to deliver.
I’ve made this dish dozens of times including holidays, family gatherings, picnics, dinners, you name it. I also made it for those eight adults and twelve kids at the beach last summer. It gets requested A LOT, but I don’t mind since I can basically make it in my sleep.
Easiest Baked Mac & Cheese Ever
1 stick butter, melted
2 cups uncooked macaroni noodles
3 cups shredded sharp or mild cheddar cheese
1 quart whole milk
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2) Melt butter and place in a 9×13 pan. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Make sure milk is evenly distributed.
3) Bake for 1 hour, uncovered. DO NOT STIR! Serve warm.
That is it! The best part is not having to boil the noodles. Plus, you have a great side dish in a little over an hour with minimal effort.
Takeaway tip: I buy the disposable aluminum pans at the dollar store when making this at someone else’s home or on vacation. It makes for an easy clean up. Enjoy!
