The Ultimate Stovetop Mac and Cheese

oday on Food with Friends, I invited one of my oldest friends over to show me her skills! Hibah and I have known each other for years, but her prowess in the kitchen may or may not match her skills on the tennis court. Tune in to our video where we make the ultimate stovetop mac and cheese together!

French Onion Mac and Cheese

The recipe begins the exact same way as French onion soup does, with a big pile of onions that reduces down into golden, caramelized goodness.

After that, you make a pretty standard mac and cheese sauce, or mornay, using provolone and gruyere, and then I add Dijon mustard and fresh thyme.

Nothing is more mouthwatering on your Thanksgiving table than a giant scoop of mashed potatoes so packed with cheese that they stretch and pull like a pot of cheese fondue!
