EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

After cooking but before adding cheese, if sauce is lumpy, either strain or add to a blender and turn on high until smooth before adding cheese.

For a crunchy top crust, spread macaroni and cheese in a baking dish, and place under the broiler for a few minutes, watching carefully, until golden brown.
