Reviving Mac & Cheese

Leftover macaroni and cheese can be transformed into a new tasty meal or side-dish.

Follow the instructions below to get a creamy, revived dish, and add some flair at the end to make it extra special.

Microwave

1. Place the macaroni & cheese into a microwave safe bowl. Make sure to only take out what you're going to use.

2. Add 1 tablespoon of milk per cup of mac and cheese. *If you'd like to add more creaminess and flavor, substitute half-and-half or cream.

3. Cover with an inverted plate, making sure to use oven mitts when removing from the microwave to avoid burning yourself.

4. Place the dish in the microwave and heat it up slowly: start with one minute, stir the mac and cheese, then continue to heat at 30 second intervals until you reach a desired temperature.

Tip: For extra flavor, mix in some grated cheese, broccoli, or other tasty tidbits before placing in the microwave. 

 

Oven

1. Place the macaroni & cheese into an oven-safe dish. Make sure to only take out what you're going to use.

2. Add 1 tablespoon of milk per cup of mac and cheese and mix to incorprate as much as possible. *If you'd like to add more creaminess and flavor, substitute half-and-half or cream.

3. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and place in the oven at 350°F for 20-30 minutes, or until heated through.

Tip: For extra flavor or chrunch, add some grated cheese, jalapenos, bread crumbs, or bacon pieces on top and return to the oven uncovered until cheese is melted or bread crumbs are browned.
