#RETURNTOREAL: 3 CHEESE MAC AND CHEESE WITH SUNDRIED TOMATOES RECIPE

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

I LOVE CHEESE. WITH A PASSION. Seriously. When I’m at a restaurant, when something has cheese on it, you can guarantee that I’m gonna order it. It’s the best PMS and comfort food. That’s why cheese dishes are a constant in our household especially on “special days” like Sundays and holidays. Basically, anytime the family gets together for a nice meal.
  Mac&Cheese


What kind of cheese? I love all kinds but the one I find most comforting is cheddar. But not just any type of cheddar. It has to carry a strong flavor. Sharp and CHEESY. It’s that real cheese flavor (if you catch my dirft) that I often find myself craving for and I only get my fix with rich, Monterey jack cheese and sharp cheddar. My favorites are those with the “Real California Cheese Seal”.

From experience, they’re also the ones that taste best with this favorite family recipe of ours. 

So without further adieu, I’m sharing it with you. 

I hope you guys will like it as much as we do. It comes in 3 different versions so you can still enjoy it even when you’re pressed for time.

Grate your cheese, cook noodles according to packet instructions and drain. Mix all your cheeses in plus slivers of sundried tomatoes. (I use kitchen shears to cut, much easier than using a knife) Season with salt and pepper. Serve:

To take it a notch higher, prepare your béchamel!

  Saute garlic and onions in butter, once fragrant, add flour.

When sauce thickens, add to your mac and cheese mixture:

Mix! And transfer to a baking dish. Serve.


 OR if you have more time, add extra crunch for a nice contrast in texture. Just sprinkle some Japanese bread crumbs on top and pop into the oven for a few minutes until the top is brown. Serve!

 The tangy flavor of the sundried tomatoes plus the crunch provided by the toasted bread crumb crust provide a nice contrast to the ultra cheesiness of this dish.

Although like your husband, he's got allergies eh so it was quite tough deciding which breed to get so I totally can relate. I miss tuloy our adopted doggies at my parents' place. <3
