When my husband and I go to our favorite fancy steakhouse, we often have trouble deciding on a side for our steak. Do we want a velvety smooth tangy baked potato? The cheesy goodness of potatoes al gratin? Or good ol’ mac n’ cheese?
I always choose the first choice. My husband, the third.
So, for a compromise on nights when we grill steaks at home, I alternate sides. This week, he got his macaroni and cheese. To be honest, I think I ate more than him. Shhhhh…. Don’t tell!
I have tried so many macaroni and cheese recipes over the years. At least twenty. Always searching for the “right” one. This is it. I think it is the egg and the dried mustard.
It is perfection. There is no need to mess with the spices. I follow it exactly.
Here are pictures of the beautiful goodness coming together. We doubled the recipe, because we had a crowd. The hands are my husband’s. He helped. It was fun. This is a recipe that is easy to cook with two people. The eggs need to be tempered and that macaroni is heavy. An extra set of arms is great!
Have you made this recipe? Do you have an old stand by? What is your favorite macaroni and cheese?
