This Easy Baked Macaroni and Cheese Recipe will quickly become a family favorite! Bonus...you don't even have to boil the noodles first!
Friends, this baked mac and cheese has been our family go to for years. We first had it at a BBQ years ago, and we've been making it ever since. For years, we called it Uncle Bill's baked mac and cheese because we were originally told that the recipe was Matt's Uncle Bill's. Then a few years ago, we learned that it was Aunt Missy's recipe. At least that's what we think...whoever's recipe it is, it's our favorite. When we go to a cookout or pot luck, this is what I am always asked to bring...by both kids and adults! The best part...you don't have to boil the macaroni first, and it only takes a few ingredients. Put it all together in a dish and pop it in the overn, and you are done! Without further adieu, her is Uncle Bill's, Aunt Missy's Baked Macaroni and Cheese!
