Tasty Tuesdays: 1-2-3-4 Mac and Cheese #recipes

1-2-3-4 Mac and Cheese

Presented by Senior Star Rising Designer, Ondria Witt

We love Mac and Cheese, and to me, homemade mac and cheese is so much better than anything you could get from a box of dried noodles and powdered cheese mix. I have a couple of Bean Pots from Celebrating Home, and love using them to prepare everything from side dishes to main dishes, appetizers and desserts.

This Mac and Cheese recipe is EASY to make, requires just four ingredients and a few simple steps!

You Will Need:

1 stick melted butter
2 cups uncooked macaroni
3 cups shredded cheese
4 cups of milk


Add 2 Cups of your favorite uncooked pasta to your Bean Pot


Melt 1 stick of unsalted butter...


Add melted butter to pasta and stir...


Add 3 Cups of shredded cheese (I used a mix of Mozzarella and Cheddar Cheeses)...


Stir all together in the Bean Pot...


Add 4 cups of milk and stir...

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Most of the milk should be absorbed at the end of cook time. You may want to stir half way through the cook time to prevent sticking. I added 1 extra handful of cheese and added 1 tsp. of flour to thicken ours a little bit.

Remove from the oven and stir...


There are so many delicious add-ins for this mac and cheese. My hubby asked if I could add bacon to this the next time we make it, and I thought that would be a great idea! This is a yummy mac and cheese to serve for your family, or to transport in your Bean Pot to a family gathering, a picnic, a church luncheon, etc. The Celebrating Home Bean Pot keeps food warm for up to 3 hours after it's been baked!

Mac and Cheese served with homemade meatballs and steamed broccoli!


Look how smooth and creamy this Mac and Cheese! Delicious!

This 1-2-3-4 Mac and Cheese is by far our family's favorite Mac and Cheese recipe! I hope that you'll give this recipe a try and serve it up to your loved ones! One of the very best things about using a Bean Pot for making dishes like this, is that there is virtually no clean up. I simply wipe my Bean Pot clean by running it under the faucet with hot, soapy water, and dried bits loosen right up! If I don't want to hand-wash it, it can go right into the dishwasher, too!

If you don't have a Celebrating Home Bean Pot, and you're interested in purchasing one for yourself or a friend, you can find more styles, colors and sizes here. You'll also find accessories like the Bean Pot Basket, and the Insultated Bean Pot Tote, which can be personalized!
