Rice Cooker Macaroni and Cheese
I make this lunch on a whim, when I need something quick, easy, and that everyone loves. And I think you will particularly enjoy cooking such a simple meal after going through the more time-consuming, complex recipes over Christmas and New Year’s. This is also a great recipe to get the children involved in the kitchen. My four-year old son loves pouring in the ingredients and stirring them together. Even pressing the “start” button on the rice cooker thrills him. I often add cauliflower or broccoli to make the meal more nutritious, and also because I love the combination of cheese and cruciferous vegetables. Or if you prefer meat in your mac and cheese, you could stir in some pulled pork, shredded ham, crispy bacon bits or prosciutto at the end. Bon appetit!
