finally…a delicious and creamy stovetop mac ‘n cheese!

I’ve been on the lookout for a great mac ‘n cheese recipe for a long time now. I have one that I love that uses several different cheeses, topped with tomatoes and bread crumbs, baked in the oven…and it’s delicious. I love it. But what about just a simple, easy version that my kids will devour while keeping the adults in the house happy, too?

I should have known to turn to Alton Brown. I’m fast becoming his loyal follower; every method of his that I’ve tried has turned out easy, delicious results. When I saw that his version uses evaporated milk – instead of the typical roux that most other recipes use – I was hopeful. And I was not disappointed. This is soooo creamy – one bite and I was in heaven! And my kids prefer this over all others that I’ve tried – even the boxed versions, and let’s face it, Kraft is a pretty tough nut to crack when it comes to kids!

This is an easy recipe that only takes a smidge longer than a box! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
