Ingredients

How to make it

  • Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil over medium heat. Add the macaroni and cook to al dente.
  • Drain in a colander. (I have to rinse the pasta..."they" say not to, but, cooking for my Dad growing up, that was a BIG no no...he hates that starchy taste, gotta say, I do too! lol YUCH!)
  • Whisk together the smoked paprika, garlic powder, hickory smoked salt, mustard powder, nutmeg, and marjoram.
  • Set aside.
  • Return the saucepan to the stovetop and add evaporated milk to warm.
  • Whisk in the spices and stir in the cheese, a handful at a time, until melted and smooth.
  • Stir in the drained pasta and cook until creamy and hot.
  • Transfer the macaroni to a serving bowl and sprinkle with chives before serving

    " It was excellent "
    gkwillow ate it and said...
    Definitely a keeper. The subtle spice blend added so much. Thought you forgot to list the butter and flour...the recipe sounded almost too easy! But it was rich and creamy without it. (I added a pic but can assure you it's G-rated. I'm going to ALWAYS post pics for my recipes so what happened to you doesn't happen to me. That was awful!)

    *Droooooooooooools* Mac n cheese is my weakness. I've never seen hickory smoked salt. I wonder if liquid smoke would work? Thank you for this. Next time I indulge [read: dieting sucks], I will absolutely have to try this.
