Comfort Food

Note: It seems the website has recently changed, and so I will find my printed copy of the recipe and will add the ingredient list/directions asap! Sorry for the confusion!

Last week, as the cool crisp air settled in for good, I got the hankering for some piping hot comfort food (can I get an amen?). I happen to LOVE Macaroni and Cheese, passionately, especially Stouffer's brand- but I hate finding freezer space for the family sized tray, plus homemade is almost always a healthier option!

So I did what any sensible, well stockpiled on pasta and cheese bargaineer shopper would do, I Googled "Stouffer's knock off Mac & Cheese!" Brilliant, yes, I know!

I came across a website called Top Secret Recipes, and inside I found a plethera of brand name recipes as well as restaurant favorites... including a recipe for Stouffer's Mac & Cheese!

Last week I made my first attempt a recreating the famous Mac & Cheese, and it was a BIG hit!
The ingredients are simple; milk, flour, butter, salt, pasta and cheese, glorious $.17/brick from Meijer, Kraft cheese!!!

The recipe and simple directions can be found right here!

I'm thinking that I may make a double batch of the sauce next time, freezing them individually, and then I can thaw and boil the pasta when I've acquired a M&C hankering- getting dinner to the table much faster than a frozen pan!

What do YOU think? Will this homemade version of M&C hit YOUR spot?

I don't understand why you would post a recipe I need to pay to see?

My sincere apologies, when I found the recipe, it was FREE! The site must have changed within the last few weeks, but I will find my printed copy and add it to this post! So sorry!
