Skillet Macaroni and Cheese
A box of macaroni and cheese seems like a convenient weeknight option, but our homemade skillet version takes only 30 minutes-and tastes worlds better.
Why This Recipe Works
Macaroni and cheese is a classic comfort dish, but often requires using (and washing) multiple dishes. We wanted to prepare a macaroni and cheese recipe in just one pan without losing its rich, satisfying flavor. To do this, we made homemade bread crumbs by pulsing two slices of hearty white sandwich bread in a food processor until coarsely ground. Cornstarch loses its thickening ability with prolonged exposure to heat, so making sure to simmer it for no more than the recommended one minute was important to the texture of our Skillet Macaroni and Cheese recipe.
