John and Bridget eat Kraft Dinner (otherwise known as “Macaroni & Cheese” in the USA) like it’s going out of style. I don’t really see the appeal and much prefer the real thing. This recipe for Easy Macaroni & Cheese is almost as simple as the boxed stuff and contains real cheese!
I’m working with the Dairy Farmers of Canada right now on a three month campaign and have the chance to try new cheeses every month. I decided to try this recipe with Big Brother cheese from Glengarry Fine Cheese in Ontario. It has a buttery flavour that is the perfect cheese for this recipe. If you can’t find it where you live, use regular cheddar cheese. Marble cheese is also good.
I like that this recipe is fast to make. Once you’ve boiled your noodles, it’s just a matter of stirring in your ingredients and serving. I love adding lots of freshly ground pepper to mine. I find it gives it a nice kick.
Mmm comfort food. I could eat this a few times a week if I wasn’t watching my weight!
