We had a left over box of Cheez Its that I was dying to get out of the house (so addictive!) and after looking up a few options on pinterest, I went with the Cheez-It mac and cheese.
No, this dish is not on the wedding diet plan. (whoops)
Next time we have some extra Cheez-Its around the house I am going to try this chicken recipe.
Hope everyone had a nice Fathers Day Weekend. Welcome back to work!
Cheez-It Mac and Cheese
1 box elbow macaroni
3/4 stick of butter
8oz. shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 cups crushed Cheez-Its
Salt and pepper
Chives for garnish (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Boil macaroni until it's tender. 7-10 minutes (check firmness) Strain and set aside.
2. In a medium sauce pan melt your butter, then add a splash of your cream. Add a handful of cheese and stir until combined. Add another splash of cream and stir again, add more cheese and stir again. Repeat this process until you only have a little cheese left (reserve that to sprinkle on top later).
3. Pour your cheese sauce on top of your cooked macaroni and stir. Pour into a an oven save pan or casorole dish. Stir in some crushed Cheez Its and salt and pepper. Sprinkle your remaining cheese on top and all of your Cheez Its.
4. Bake for 15-20 mins or until Cheez Its are lightly toasted on top. Serve with a chive garnish on top!
