Baking Sheet Macaroni and Cheese

I have mentioned many times on this blog that I love baked macaroni. My mom had a recipe which I think is great. I recently had baked macaroni from La Rosticceria which I gave two thumbs up. So when I was visiting food52 and a recipe for Baking Sheet Macaroni and Cheese popped up I was interested.

The original recipe called for 3 cups of heavy cream. When I make my recipe for baked macaroni and even when I make quiche, which usually calls for heavy cream, I use milk. There was a little water in the bottom of the pan when I served this dish which could have been from the milk. There is not liquid when I make my usual recipe, perhaps because I add eggs to the dish... Not sure about the science of that...

Back to this recipe. It was like picking off all the crunchy top part of the dish. That is my favorite part. Chris and I both enjoyed it. I may try my usual recipe, with the eggs, in the sheet pan. Best part was it only took 15 minutes to bake.

Making mac n cheese on a baking sheets sounds like a great idea because everyone gets some of the crunchy topping. I can see why you would sub milk in place of 3 cups of cream - that's a lot of cream! It looks great.
