Ultimate Creamy Mac and Cheese

Hey everyone! A traditional mac and cheese recipe definitely screams comfort food to me. I've grown to love it so much! I just truly enjoy the combination of cheeses, that rich and thick bechamel sauce, and topping it off with buttery breadcrumbs and watching it bake in the oven. That crispy crust at the end really finishes this simple dish to an exquisite level. With that being said, I'm so excited to share this simple yet delightful baked mac and cheese recipe. We're not going to lay off on the cheesiness in this recipe! This will be absolutely super cheesy and satisfy you with every bite!

This recipe will show you how to make the best traditional mac and cheese! I use cheddar and mozzarella cheese for the sauce and make the crust using Panko breadcrumbs and some extra cheese and olive oil. These simple ingredients combined will give you the ultimate mac and cheese with so much flavour and so much cheese! Be sure to give it a try, you'll want this over and over again as your comfort food of choice!

Get ready to cuddle up with a bowl of this mac and cheese and make your new go-to comfort food with this classic mac and cheese recipe! Enjoy!

I would love to hear your feedback
