So, here goes my first official post. And yes, its all about the magic instant pot. Ok, Ok, so you are wondering, what is the big deal? Well, personally i have never used a pressure cooker of fear of blowing the roof off! And then 4 yrs ago,i heard how fast and amazing they were. Well, my hubby got me one for my birthday and my world has been transformed!
So , i thought i would start out with the famous, never can go wrong meal, MAC N CHEESE. now my kiddos are crazy about this and they have seconds and thirds. And did i mention it literally is done in ten minutes flat! Of course, if you do n0t have an instant pot or other brand pressure cooker , I am sure you can make this on the stove top, just not in ten minutes.
- I box (16 ounce of elbow macaroni)
- 1 cup of heavy whipping cream ( 1 can of evaportated milk would work or even whole milk)
- 3 Tbs of butter
- 2 tbs salt
- 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
- 4 cups of water
Inside the instant pot, place the macaroni, water, salt and butter. Set instant pot on 4 minutes, manual release pressure. After that is done, set pot on saute and add milk, and stir. Then slowly add as it melts! enjoy!
