There are just no words to fully describe the absolutely amazing taste of this macaroni and cheese.
But those awesome southerners have amazing ways of describing things.
Know how I know?
For example: Shut the front door = shut up! or no way!! or get outta town!!
Slap your mama is one of my favorites but I’m not sure that means something good.
And I love my mama so I would never slap her.
I was organizing the basement last week and found a cookbook from Annie’s preschool:
I totally forgot about this recipe.
I loved this mac and cheese.
It is the best homemade mac and cheese recipe I have ever made.
Want to know why?
Because it has a cheese sauce that covers all of the noodles.
Sometimes when you make homemade mac and cheese and you use cubed cheese, you get some noodles without any cheese on them.
Well, that just isn’t right!
It’s called Mac and Cheese for a reason!
Not just Mac.
That would just be silly.
As is this dialogue.
Anyway, this is an amazing recipe and it has four-ish ingredients AND I bet you have most if not all of the ingredients sitting in your kitchen now.
Shut the Front Door Mac and Cheese
Mac and Cheese That Will Make Your Pile O’ Laundry Go Away
It won’t but it tastes so good, you won’t care if you have a pile of laundry.
1-2.5 cups of elbow macaroni
2 C. milk ( the original recipe calls for whole milk. I used low-fat and it was still really good)
6-8 slices DELI American cheese (only the deli-style, not regular cheese slices. I used Kraft deli slices but you could also go to your grocery deli)
(Oh and use all 8 slices)
2 Tbsp. flour
1 cube of chicken bouillon
Boil the elbow macaroni.
Then while that is boiling away do the following:
Heat the milk, bouillon, a dash of salt and the flour.
Use a whisk to make sure you break down the flour.
Let it slightly boil (you want it to thicken).
Then add the cheese slices.
Stir until it all melts.
Once you’ve boiled the macaroni and drained it, pour the cheese sauce over the noodles.
I will not be held responsible for what this will do to your diet.
