I love homemade Mac & Cheese. It has been way too long since I made some, so I decided to remedy that last weekend. This recipe is very easy to make. It only takes about 10 minutes and it is ready for the oven. It is super creamy and cheesy!
This recipe is very easy to half or double for a crowd. I topped the Golden Macaroni and Cheese with some crushed Ritz crackers. You can use breadcrumbs if you don't have any crackers, or just bake it without a topping. Either way, it will still be delicious!!
We loved this Golden Macaroni and Cheese! I could have made a meal out of it! It goes great with everything! We like to serve it with grilled chicken, pork chops and chicken tenders.
