Ultimate Mac & Cheese

July 24, 2013 by Kenmore

Being a single mom of a toddler, naturally I want to feed my kid the best foods I can. Unfortunately, the things he wants to eat aren’t always the healthiness or best for him. One of his favorite foods is Mac & Cheese. Boxed Mac & Cheese totally grosses me out, with all the preservatives and chemicals, it’s just not natural. I came up with this recipe as a more homely approach to the boxed Mac & Cheese and he loves it!

cook time




0.5 pounds elbow macarioni

3 tablespoons butter

1 cup half and half

1 cup whole milk

0.5 teaspoons paprika

3 tablespoons sour cream

1 egg

12 ounces sharp cheddar cheese

6 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese

1 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoons badia adobo seasoning

1 teaspoons fresh cracked black pepper



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook the pasta to al dente. Al dente is usually achieved at the 8-10min mark. Drain water from the pot and return pasta to a low flame. Stir in butter, half & half and whole milk. Beat your egg in a separate bowl and temper into mixture. Stir in mozzarella cheese, sour cream and 3/4 of the cheddar cheese. When cheeses are well combined, fold in your fresh black pepper, paprika and adobo seasoning salt. Butter a few ramekins or a casserole dish and pour your mixture in. Top with the remaining cheese. Place in the oven for 20mins, then place under the broiler for 10min to achieve a crunchy top.
