Getting Cheesy

Guys if you are looking for a low fat foodorama blog this is not the one for you. But if you are wanting some delicious recipes, then you found your home big girl and you can stay as long as you want. I made a delicious Mac and Cheese a few months ago and thought that I had reached the Mecca of all Mac and Cheese but oh yes I was wrong, gloriously wrong and now I am sure I have found the true best cheesefest of all time! Oh and be warned this makes a buttload and a half so youll be eating it for a long time to come. YOU ARE WELCOME!!

I couldn't find my really awesome pictures that I took of us digging in so this finished pan will have to do.


1 stick of unsalted butter
6 slices of bread cut into small pieces 
5 1/2 c of whole milk
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg, pepper, and cayenne pepper
sharp white cheddar cheese
fresh mozzarella
1lb pasta

You can kinda use what cheese you like but this is what I like so you should like it too. Also I just got two pack of the cheddar and one of the mozzarella...and I grated it all myself which Im sure if you are lazy and dont want the full experience then you can buy it already like that....cheater.

Step ONE
Preheat your oven 375, Butter the pan youll be cooking your dish in. I used a big casserole pan. Place the bread chunks in a bowl, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and pour over the bread. Mix it all in then set it aside.
Step TWO
Warm your milk over medium heat. Melt the remaining butter in another skillet also over medium heat, when it starts to bubble add the flour. Cook for a minute and keep stirring it.
While stirring, slowly pour the hot milk a small amount at a time to keep the mixture smooth. Keep cooking, stirring continually until the mixture bubbles and is thick. It took me 12 minutes. I know its a long time but keep your head up lady and enlist your children to help you do it.
Take your pan off the heat. Add the salt, nutmeg, both peppers, 3 cups of cheddar and 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella. Leave it alone for a minute.
Boil your could multi task and have already done this but hey like I said its your kitchen do what you want. Dont cook your pasta too long, about two minutes should do. It needs to be only cooked on the outside. Drain and rinse in cold water...then drain some more. Add the pasta to the cheese sauce.
Step SIX
Pour it into your casserole pan, 1 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese on top and 1/2 cup of mozzarella also the bread crumbs. Bake it 30 mins or until golden brown.
Pour a glass of wine, STUFF YO FACE!!

I hope you try it. If you do let me know how much you love me for sharing and all that fun stuff.
Your welcome.
