Easy silky, cheesy Stovetop Mac and Cheese that can be made from scratch and ready in 20 minutes plus it’s kid friendly!
Most kids are probably back to school by now, so you’re probably back to your hectic schedule. Trust me, I understand! This is why I have a 20 minute recipe for stovetop mac and cheese for you today that’s kid friendly and so so good. It couldn’t get any easier and beats the box kind any day! I mean, come on people, it has real cheese, lots of it!
We’ve got macaroni, butter, and lots of cheese coming together in mouth orgasm inducing combinations cooking up on the stovetop today! Yeah, I can get a little crazy when it comes to mac and cheese and that’s because it’s one of my favorite comfort foods ever. Mac and cheese, at least the box version, is something most of used to lived on during college, but then I learned to make it myself, thanks to Alton Brown, who is my favorite food network chef ever, and I never looked back. I never even bought a box of mac and cheese again. What can I say besides thank you, Alton Brown!
This stovetop mac and cheese is made with evaporated milk, but if you don’t have any, you could use regular milk, but I think the evaporated milk helps to make the sauce creamier, same with the eggs. Now I know a lot of people will probably cringe at the idea of putting eggs in mac and cheese, but you can just skip them if you’re one of those people, no big deal!
