I know it is pretty unusual for me to post on a Sunday.
But today, I decided to post a recipe. Why? Well, mostly because we are nearing the end of Cooking with Paula Deen and I really cannot not post this recipe.
After all, think southern cooking, think Mac and Cheese.
So that got me thinking. I can't be the only Mom facing (a horde, well, it feels like that) of hungry kid(s)!
So enough of my ranting (hehe).
Here is a simple, inexpensive, but very tasty mac and cheese recipe!
I started by cooking the macaroni in a pot of salted boiling water. Once cooked (I took 3 minutes off the recommended cooking time), I added Cheddar, and gave it a stir. This was set aside.
This was gone before I could take any pictures of the inside of the dish.
The Lady's Chessy Mac (Serves 6-8)
Adapted from Paula Deen
4 cups (500g) cooked elbow macaroni, drained
2 cups (400g) grated cheddar cheese
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup (125ml) sour cream
4 tablespoons (56.7g) butter, cut into pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (240ml) milk
Preheat the oven to 350°F (176.6°C).
Once you have the macaroni cooked and drained, place in a large bowl and while still hot and add the cheddar. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and add to the macaroni mixture. Pour macaroni mixture into a casserole dish and bake for 30 to 45 minutes. Top with additional cheese if desired.
