Use a blender or processor to blend all liquid ingredients together (cottage cheese, greek yogurt, egg, pumpkin, and additional optional sweetener). Then pour into a bowl and mix with dry ingredients. Pour into a well oiled pan and bake for 30-40 minutes, until it only jiggles SLIGHTLY when you’re checkin on it in the oven or when a knife comes out semi clean. Let it cool outside in room temperature for a bit, then let chill in refrigerator for a few hours. Then BAMMMM ENJOY! By @vmfitness
So, yesterday I made my baked mac n cheese and my family went bananas! I haven’t made it in a while so I surprised my kids with it by having it ready for them when they came home from school… For those of you who have never made it or who may want a different recipe, here is mine… It is sooo easy!!! 😋 (Keep in mind that I am preparing for a large family so I use two of everything. If you are just preparing for yourself or a small family, just use one) • Two boxes of elbow macaroni • Two bags of Kraft shredded sharp cheddar cheese (or whichever brand you like) • Two cans of Carnation evaporated milk • Lawry’s Seasoned Salt • Black Pepper • Butter Prep: First, preheat the oven to 350* Then, use a stick of butter to coat the entire inside of a Pyrex dish such as the one in the picture. This prevents your mac n cheese from sticking to the dish. Open the two cans of evaporated milk and bags of cheese. Have them ready along side the pot. Then, boil the macaroni until tender but firm. Turn off the fire and drain quickly. While the pot is still hot, pour the macaroni along with the evaporated milk back into the large pot. Make sure that you stir quickly so that the macaroni does not stick to the bottom of the pot. Add the two bags of cheese and stir again until all of the cheese is melted. Then, season to taste with season salt and black pepper. I use a lot because we are salt lovers in our house (I know, it’s not the healthiest, but hey…😚) Then, pour the concoction into your Pyrex dish. Spread evenly. Some people choose to coat the top with breadcrumbs but that is not my preference. Put into your oven on the middle rack and let bake for approximately 45 minutes or until the top looks slightly crisp with a hint of brown. Remove and put onto kitchen towels or your oven top to cool a little. Cut and serve… Sometimes I mix cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese. Some people get fancy and use multiple cheeses. Use which ever cheese you like. Just do not exceed the volume of two bags. Hope you enjoy. If you have an amazing recipe for mac n cheese, please briefly share as well. Have a great day everyone!!! 😄 #macncheese #macandcheese #recipe #macncheeserecipe #yum By @gia_casey
