Homemade SKILLET Macaroni and Cheese


This past weekend we got together with some friends. They were making bbq chicken sliders and asked us to bring a side. What goes better with bbq than macaroni and cheese, so I told them I’d bring it over. However, there was a small problem….and I can’t even believe that I am admitting this, but yall, I’ve never made homemade macaroni and cheese. I always like to let me friend Kraft help me out. 

But no more! Yall this was so easy and III has been talking about it ever since. I actually made it again three days later (on a WEEKNIGHT, no less)! Okay, now you don’t have to make it in a cast iron skillet, but if you do, it looks even better :o)

Here is the skinny on this probably not so skinny but delicous dish!

It’s really sooo easy and you will not regret making this dish for a second. You could even add some sausage and tomatoes or chicken and broccoli and make tonight’s dinner a one dish meal!  I’d love to know what you would add to this tasty macaroni and cheese?
