the mouse cooks stuff with cheese! Ha ha ha ha ha!
Todd had a work department dinner to go to tonight, so I thought I would cook myself a new recipe called Bacon, Ranch, and Chicken Mac and Cheese. Todd is a cheese-hater, so I cook stuffs with cheese when he's not around. Yahoo! :p
The first part of the recipe is to make the sauce.
Then I added the cheese, dill, garlic powder, dried onion (I didn't have onion powder), and salt and stirred until the cheese melted into the sauce. Then I added the cooked macaroni and chicken to the cheese sauce.
Then I put everything into an 8 inch casserole pan, sprinkled colby jack cheese on top, along with bacon, and put it in the oven to broil the top for a couple of minutes.
Our oven is powerful and the cheese on top started burning before time was up. Good thing I was watching it and took it out!
With some fresh ground pepper on top. Mine, all mine!
The homemade mac and cheese was a success. It's slightly healthier than it looks I guess. Cooking Light made me use reduced fat cheese and fat-free milk. If you're interested the recipe is here.
