Buttermilk Mac and Cheese – CRAZY good!!! Only 5 ingredients! I wasn’t sure how I would like the buttermilk, but it was SO good! Eggs, cheddar cheese, buttermilk, butter, macaroni. Can make ahead and freezer for later. Everyone RAVES about this yummy side dish recipe!
I came across this recipe for Buttermilk Macaroni & Cheese in one of my old cookbooks. I had some buttermilk in the refrigerator and decided to give it a try. OMG! Y’all. This was SO good. I wasn’t sure how I would like the buttermilk flavor, but it was amazing. I could not stop eating it!
This makes a lot of Buttermilk Mac & Cheese. It would be great for a summer cookout, potluck and the holidays. I know y’all like to make dishes ahead of time, I think you could definitely make this ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze it until later. You could even bake the Mac & Cheese and reheat it later. I like to cover it with foil and reheat it in the oven.
This Buttermilk Macaroni & Cheese is a new favorite in our house. We are making it again this weekend with some grilled chicken. I can not wait!
