Old School Mac n' Cheese
This is a completely unpretentious, down-home macaroni and cheese recipe just like my grandma and mom always made. A simple white sauce where you add cheese and a few other flavors with macaroni and a potato chip crust. This recipe makes a lot, I like to make two pans so I can take one to a pot luck and have the other one to keep in the fridge for later. It's an easy recipe to adjust down if you only want to make one pan. If you aren't cooking it right away, just keep the topping separate until you are ready to put it in the oven.
Loaded Mashed Potato Cakes
Mashed potato cakes have been a staple in my southern family all throughout my childhood. I came up with this recipe when trying to put a new spin on an old favorite.
