Day 240: Mac and Cheese Pie
This is a tasty mac and cheese pie combines two amazing dishes into one! It's easy to make, and super fun as well!
For the pie crust I recommend grating butter. When you grate the butter, it will be easier to cut in! Another tip is to make crust the day before, or buy it ready made.
For the mac and cheese I like to use whole milk. I found that whole milk will thicken easily, so you don't have to stir as long. Whole milk also develops a richer and creamier flavor.
But of course, if you only have 2% or fat free milk, that will work just as well. For the pasta, you can use anything. From the traditional elbow pasta to penne. Feel free to use what you have at hand but make sure the pasta is short and tiny, not like lasagna.
This is a fantastic pie! It includes two of my favorite dishes, pie and mac and cheese! The crust is perfectly flaky, and the whole meal together tastes great!
