Stovetop Mac and Cheese is the perfect weeknight dinner for two. Creamy, cheesy comfort food.
If there ever was a recipe for a big bowl of comforting food, it is stovetop mac and cheese. There’s hardly a soul who wouldn’t be warmed by this stuff. Creamy, cheesy and comforting, everyone loves this dish. But shouldn’t you have a recipe that just makes 2 bowls?
You can whip this up anytime your honey has a bad day. As you share a pot of this mac ‘n cheese, they can tell you all about their day. By the end of the bowl, I guarantee your loved one will be feeling better. If you are the one that has the bad day, well, make this and eat both servings.
This recipe is easier than standard macaroni and cheese, because it doesn’t require a roux for thickening. I’ve found that by whisking flour into a small amount of cold milk separately, and then pouring this into the warm milk on the stove, the result is even creamier. Add the grated cheese once the mixture thickens slightly.
I use Meunster in my mac ‘n cheese for its creamy, melting properties. In my opinion, it’s the American version of young Fontina commonly used in Fondue. It melts smoothly and evenly every time. I also stir in a bit of cheddar at the end for the tang that you know and love in mac ‘n cheese. The cheddar is entirely optional; the recipe is just as good made with all Meunster cheese. Please, though, grate your own cheese. The pre-grated stuff is covered with a sawdust-like material that can be grainy in the final dish.
I hope this stovetop macaroni and cheese brings you comfort!
