Foodie Friday: Baked Mac n Cheese

Since we can't be home with our families this year, Jon and I decided to make a very simple baked mac n cheese recipe that his mom used to make when he was a child. Nothin' like being close to home without being AT home!

You will need:

16 oz. box elbow noodles
1 block of cheese (we used 3/4 lb extra sharp cheddar cheese)
A few small dollops of butter
2 slices of bread

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Boil elbow noodles in large saucepan for 8-10 minutes

3. While boiling noodles, grate block of cheese

4. Drain noodles

5. Butter bread and cut into small squares

6. In a small rectangular casserole dish, add a single layer of cheese

7. Add layer of noodles and a dollop of butter

8. Repeat the layer process ending with cheese on top

9. Place bread pieces on top layer of cheese

10. Bake for 20-25 minutes

Baked mac n crack, as I like to call it, and virgin margaritas! Happy Holidays all!
