If you’re looking for a more traditional type of Mac and Cheese, TikToker CookitErica gives you an option that leaves just one dish for you to wash when you’re done.

However, she does mention that her โ€œusualโ€ way of making it does make the dish a bit more consistent.

  • Start by adding a block of your favorite cheese to the middle of a baking dish
  • Surround your cheese with macaroni pasta
  • Add two cups of milk to your pasta. Optionally, you can put in two cups of heavy cream.
  • Add some grated cheese to the top of your dish and season to taste
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes
