I recently shared someone’s homemade mac and cheese recipe. Yesterday, I had the desire to try it, albeit with a few minor tweaks that made this delicious dish my own.
1 box dry elbow macaroni (16 oz)
4 Tbsp salted butter
2 cans of evaporated milk (12 oz)
1/3 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
¼ teaspoon garlic salt
4 cups grated cheddar cheese (can be bags of shredded)
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese (can be bags of shredded)
1 teaspoon paprika
1 small 8 oz back of Doritos (flavor is up to you)
Boil a pot of water. Add the box of macaroni and a dash of salt. Cook as desired.
Drain into colander and pour pasta back into the pot.
Add the butter. Stir until the butter melts completely into the macaroni.
Find a large bowl. Mix the milk, evaporated milk, eggs, and garlic salt until it is a nice fine combination of the ingredients.
Find another bowl and mix together the cheeses.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Spray a 9X13 inch baking pan.
Layer the bottom of the baking pan with approximately a third of the macaroni. Next, layer a third of the cheese. Repeat until completed.
Pour the milk mixture over the top.
Sprinkle the paprika across the top.
Break the entire bag of Doritos and distribute over the top. Crackers work here, as well.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. The extra five minutes may be all it takes for that amazing crunch that I love!
Set aside to cool and enjoy!
