Stovetop macaroni and cheese, oh how I love thee. My love affair started at such a young age with the boxed elbow noodles and then moved on to the shells. It’s such an easy food to whip up and the possibilities are endless on cheeses, noodles, toppings and mix-ins.
Today I’m indulging this mac and cheese recipe with a little bit of brownie brittle.
People are loving my savory recipes like crab cakes and spice rub for steaks so of course I needed a side dish to compliment the others. At first I was very weary of what the taste would be like with my beloved cheese and noodles.
This stovetop macaroni and cheese is such a simple recipe and its perfect for kids and adults. The addition of Brownie Brittle is not overpowering and just adds a little subtle flavor to the overall dish. Plus you can’t beat a good side dish recipe that only take about 13 minutes from start to finish. So don’t be scared to try out new dishes or experiment with items that you have in your pantry. You will be amazed at what you can come up with for your family.
