One of the things I’m most worried about for Thanksgiving is oven space. Turkey, casseroles, bread that needs to be warmed up – I mean, there’s a lot of stuff that needs some oven time. I have been looking for classic dishes that can be done on the stove and this creamy delicious macaroni and cheese fits the bill. And bonus points to it because it only requires ONE pot.
I really loved this version of macaroni and cheese. I know this is wrong to say, but I am forever searching for a macaroni recipe that has the same texture as those frozen Stouffers ones – and this one does. Tastes exactly like that. And dare I say that because it’s only one pot, it’s just as easy as popping a frozen meal in the oven or even making macaroni and cheese from the box?
A great way to jazz it up would be toasting panko bread crumbs (or fresh ones) in a little butter in a small skillet on the stove, and then sprinkling that over top of the macaroni before serving. It would make it seem more like a baked version with minimal effort.
