Meg's Magnificent Mac and Cheese

Megan Hampton


Macaroni and Cheese is a touchy dish! It depends entirely on a person's taste whether or not they will enjoy it. I've played around in the kitchen with different recipes and come up with something my family can live with every day all day! Yum! This is my party version, so if you're only cooking for a small dinner or gathering, you can cut this recipe right in half!
