Left-over mac & cheese?
Before I figured this recipe out I used to just end up throwing away any left-over macaroni & cheese after several days in the 'frig. Nobody would eat it - me included. But I really don't like wasting food. Once I started making this recipe, my daughters practically fight over the left-overs. It's easy too.
Take yesterday's mac & cheese and warm it for about 35 seconds in the microwave. Melt a little butter or magarine on a griddle or in a skillet then add the mac & cheese. Use a spatula to spread it into a thin layer. Let it get a nice and crispy and a little brown on the bottom and the flip it. Another few minutes on the other side and it's ready to top with a sprinkling of shredded cheddar cheese. Sometimes we'll mix in left-over ham or a sliced hot dog or two. Certainly not low calorie but we don't eat mac & cheese all the often so it's not something we eat everyday.
When I have left-over macaroni & cheese, this recipe works for me!
