Cooking With Shereen Mac and Cheese
Mac and cheese is an irresistibly comforting classic that can range from easy to gourmet depending on how much time and care is given in its preparation. Just a bit of time, care, and effort is all it takes to craft this mouthwatering treat that everyone will rave about! You can make it from scratch using your preferred kind of cheese (e.g. sharp cheddar, brie, asiago etc). Plus you can add protein-packed vegetables for a nutritious meal! Ideal as lunch or dinner side dish options; goes well with any combination of vegetables/protein source!
Mac and cheese is an enjoyable meal that you can make any day of the week, and freezing individual portions for easy meal planning when time is short or you are busy or sick. Baking it gives it extra melty cheese goodness!
If you want to reheat stovetop mac and cheese in the microwave, first transfer it into an oven-safe dish and add about one tablespoon per cup of macaroni of milk used to cook them (about the same as used during stovetop preparation). Heat on low, while continuously stirring so as to incorporate all of the milk. Be careful not to overheat; doing so could result in soggy macaroni!

If you want to elevate the flavor of your macaroni and cheese, try making it with brown butter. It adds an irresistibly rich and nutty touch that elevates boxed mac and cheese. To do it at home, simply melt some butter over medium heat in a small pan until golden-brown in hue, whisk in some flour to thicken, then continue stirring continuously until the mixture turns light brown with an appealing nutty scent.
Once your brown butter is ready, drizzle it over your macaroni and cheese dish and sprinkle paprika for a beautiful finishing touch. Toast bread crumbs add crunch while this easy yet delectable recipe promises to become one of your family’s favorites!
