For all you trout fisherman out there, here's a simple side dish that will compliment your days catch. Good ole' Mac-n-cheese. And this recipe is so simple. I got it from my Grandma. I usually make it in a pyrodex casserole dish, but decided to go 'Dutch' tonight.

Melt 3 Tbl spoons of butter in a #10 or #12 'Dutch'. Pour in 2 1/2 cups of UNCOOKED macaroni. Mix well with butter. Pour in 4 cups of milk. Add 1 - 8 oz. bag of shredded cheddar cheese. Add a tsp of salt and pepper. Mix well. Bake at 325 degrees for approx. 75 minutes. Take lid off last 10-15 min. to brown to your choice. This is also great with chopped bits of leftover ham mixed in it.

Yes! One of my all time favorite submarine meals: Fish or shrimp, macaroni and cheese, and stewed tomatoes. Seconds on fish and macaroni please.

Man you guys are determined to put pounds on those of us who can ill afford it, darn that looks GOOD!!!!!!!!!

By the way, not meaning to be a smarta** but don't you mean a
PYREX dish, not a PYRODEX dish, I don't want to be near your
kitchen when you bake in pyrodex!! :mrgreen:

Yeah, great recipe!! I liked it with bacon and ham both. :)

If you like a bit creamier texture then substitute the milk for heavy cream, or go half milk, half cream.

Dutch ovens are just the best for camping and hunting!

Well a Mac. and cheese story.
When I was growing up in the early 50s we were prettty poor military family of four at the time. It later became a family of Six.
Anyway you could buy a box of Kraft Mac Dinner for 10 cents a box along with a can of Cambells Tomato soup for 10 cents. At times both were on sale for 2 for 1 and sometimes cheaper. You can't believe how much Kraft Dinner ( as we called it) I ate. :D :D
A family of for could eat for around 50 cents. :roll:
I still LOVE THAT STUFF. Wifeie adds more to it now for me. :lol:
