Ingredients: Macaroni Parmesan Cheese Cheddar Cheese Cheez Whiz Heavy Cream Butter Nutmeg Salt Pepper Flour Bread Crumbs
What to Do: The first step in making home-made mac and cheese is to create a ‘Rou.’ Melt butter into a pot and stir in flour slowly while stirring constantly. When the rou becomes brown, add the cream and stir until the mixture begins simmering.
At this point, add the cheddar cheese in and contiune stirring until almost melted. Next add in the Cheez Whiz and some of the Parmesan cheese. Add the nutmeg as well here.
Meanwhile, begin boiling the macaroni in salted water until it’s almost cooked.
Add the cooked mac into the cheese mixture and stir. Season with additional salt and pepper until flavor is desired.
Transfer mac and cheese into a baking dish and add the remaining Parmesan cheese and some bread crumbs for a nice crust to be made. You can add additional butter on top for a nicer crust. Put the baking dish into a 375 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Garnish with Tomatoes. Serve immediately !!
