Mmm… Macaroni & Cheese and I’m not talking about the box kind. I LOVE macaroni and cheese and I remember my Mum making this recipe when I was a kid and she still, to this day, makes the best macaroni & cheese EVER.
She even won the Hubs over when we were dating with this recipe and it is one of the most requested meals whenever I meal plan. I’m not sure if that’s because it’s a quick, easy dinner or it’s because it’s a favorite. To me.. this is comfort food. There’s just something about this recipe. I don’t think we ever grow tired of this for dinner.
I have had friends ask me “how do you make your macaroni & cheese?” and I had to do a trial and error kind of thing to figure out the exact measurements as my Mum just “adds a bit of this..until it looks right”. I do differ from her original recipe as I use cornstarch to thicken the sauce as I never seem to get the rouge sauce right. This version of my Mum’s macaroni & cheese is so easy to make that even the Hubs will cook it every now and then.
This is the macaroni & cheese recipe that is mentioned in my What’s for Dinner? Week of 7/3 post.
