Well nothing says home and comfort like homemade macaroni and cheese. For me it is king of all comfort foods. So it is the perfect post to share with you on this Father’s Day. It represents all that dad’s should be.
I have made this recipe with different cheeses but this version is the best so far. I came across shredded queso at the grocery store so decided to give it a try. It gave the dish a nice creaminess and flavor. That along with some freshly ground nutmeg made this mac-n-cheese extra special.
So, when big, warm hugs are needed, this is your dish! ENJOY my friends!
12 oz macaroni, cooked
6 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
6 oz queso cheese shredded
2 tbsp butter
2 1/2 cup milk
pinch of salt & pepper
fresh ground nutmeg (to taste)
Mix all ingredients (minus paprika) together and pour into a greased casserole dish. Add a little extra cheese on top toward end of cook time and sprinkle with paprika. Bake @ 350F for 45 minutes.
