In the Kitchen will be the category where I will post some of the recipes I cook for my family. I promise you these are super-duper easy recipes because I’m really not an expert in the kitchen plus the fact that I don’t want recipes with so many steps/how-tos. Just 4-6 instructions, anything more than that, I skip the page of my recipe book and look for simpler recipes. So newbies in the kitchen, I hope you’ll try my recipes or suggestions and let’s share kitchen secrets!
Whenever there are choices for side dishes in a restaurant, we never fail to order mac and cheese. It’s a favorite and yet I haven’t cooked one in our kitchen. I thought it’s complicated and that it required continuous stirring and later on baking. But lo and behold, I learned that I can whip up an easy mac and cheese recipe without baking. Well, baking is optional if you want that cheesy crust. I got another secret… I’m using Jolly Cream of Mushrooms in my Mac and Cheese, it’s one hack that made my pasta dish more creamy.
I’m going to cook this for Christmas because it’s perfect as a side dish for roast chicken or baby back ribs. Oh my, I can’t wait! This will be a hit to kids and adults alike making our holidays more jolly!
Easy Mac and Cheese with Jolly Cream of Mushrooms
Elbow Macaroni (cooked according to package directions)
1 10.5 oz Jolly Cream of Mushrooms
1 cup Jolly Cow Fresh Milk
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
- Combine the Jolly Cream of Mushrooms and Jolly Cow Fresh Milk in a pot, stir continuously over medium heat.
- Add the grated Cheddar Cheese, stir until all the cheese are melted.
- Add pepper to taste.
- Mix the pasta and the cheese sauce. Serve!
Optional: You may add more cheese on top and bake it in the oven for a cheesy crust.
Next time, I’ll experiment on combining other cheeses too. I love cheddar but some might find this a bit sharp.
See how CHEASY! Cheesy + Easy = CHEASY! The use of Jolly Cream of Mushrooms makes all the difference, you don’t need additional ingredients, just cheese and you’re off to a #JollyChristmas!
