Mac and Cheese is one of the most beloved comfort foods of all time. It’s a classic dish that’s easy to make and can be customized to suit your tastes. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, here’s Mac and Cheese 101: learn how to make the perfect dish.
First, you’ll need to gather your ingredients. You’ll need macaroni, cheese, butter, milk, and salt. You can use any types of macaroni and cheese you like, but the classic elbow macaroni is always a great choice.
Next, you’ll need to prepare your macaroni. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, then add the macaroni and cook until it’s al dente. Once it’s finished cooking, drain the macaroni and set it aside.
Now it’s time to make the cheese sauce. Start by melting butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Once the butter is melted, add the milk and bring to a simmer. Then add the cheese, stirring until it’s completely melted. If the sauce is too thick, add a bit more milk. Once the sauce is finished, season with salt to taste.
Finally, combine the macaroni and cheese sauce in a baking dish. Top with a sprinkle of cheese, if desired, and bake at 350°F for 25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
And voila! You’ve just created the perfect Mac and Cheese. Enjoy!
