As the weather gets colder outside, It's nice to indulge in some of our favorite comfort foods! Here's a little twist on one our favorites!
Healthier Baked Mac and Cheese
1 (375g) box whole wheat or other macaroni of choice (about 3 cups dry)
1/4 cup butter (we use unsalted)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups 1% milk or any alternative milk option of choice
1 1/2 cups chicken broth (we use low-sodium)
1/2 teaspoon salt (recommend leaving this out if you are not using low or no sodium butter & broth)
2 cups (plus 1 cup for topping) shredded cheddar cheese (low fat if desired) (we personally use the regular whole cheese)
1/3 cup Panko bread crumbs (great seasoned w/garlic and herbs of choice!)
NOTE: This is a great basic recipe. We often add caramelized onions, veggies that we love, tuna or salmon, a touch of fresh garlic just to name a few! Enjoy playing and making this recipe your own!
