Yep, I’m totally on the instant pot bandwagon & it lives up to all the hype y’all!! It’s like the lazy man’s crock pot! Ok, so here is my recipe that I only made a few changes to from This Old Gal’s Mac & Cheese recipe!
Instant Pot Mac & Cheese:
- 16oz box of pasta, any short noodle will work!
- 4 cups of water
- 4 T of butter
- 1/2 cup of cream, 1/2 & 1/2, or milk!
- 2 cups of any type of cheese your family likes!
- 1/2 t of salt, pepper to taste
Combine your 4 cups of water, box of pasta, 4 T of butter and salt & pepper in your Instant Pot. Lock lid & set to manual for 4 minutes. Once it’s done, let pressure go down naturally for about 1-4 minutes then quick release. Turn instant pot to sauté, stir, & add your milk and cheese ( you can also add cooked bacon & any other seasonings you have (garlic, cayenne) to your pasta! Stir everything together while the cheese sauce gets thicker (only takes a couple of minutes), then serve! You might want to try and make sure there’s enough salt & pepper for your family’s liking! You can also add a small squeeze of mustard to enhance the cheddar flavor! 😉
