Ultimate Baked Macaroni & Cheese

Janet Crow


Nothing says comfort food more than macaroni and cheese and this recipe is nothing short of pure comfort for my family. It's a combination of a couple recipes I make and I decided to marry the two to make the ultimate cheesy side dish. It's absolutely delicious and if you happen to have leftovers, they freeze well and reheat to taste just as if you had just pulled it out of the oven.
