How to make Filipino Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Filipino Baked Macaroni and Cheese Recipe is a classic home cooked meal which can be a very satisfying comfort food during the cold December months. This is definitely a crowd pleaser for potlucks and Christmas parties. This is a dish made with elbow macaroni as the main ingredient baked with creamy cheese and white sauce that consists of thickened milk with butter and flour then topped with breadcrumbs.

Cooking Baked Macaroni and Cheese is surprisingly very easy, you will know that the pasta is already cooked when you see the sauce bubble and ooze on the top of macaroni and the cheese turns brown then the smell of butter fills the house.

    My son could live on Mac n Cheese but I like it as a side dish. This version would be a very good compromise for us
