Simple, Creamy Mac & Cheese Recipe
At Dairymaids we have breakfast together every Saturday. This Mac & Cheese, which we adapted from an Alton Brown recipe, has become a Saturday morning staple. A stovetop preparation, it is simple and very quick.
For cheese you can grate up whatever you may have on hand (cow’s milk cheeses in the cheddar and Alpine categories melt best). If you were to choose just one, we currently recommend the Cowgirl Creamery Wagon Wheel, which is available in the needed size on our online site: https://houstondairymaids.square.site/
