Baked Egg Mac and Cheese
If you can do one thing to get someone excited about breakfast, it’s got to be throwing some eggs on top of your mac and cheese and baking it to yolky perfection. Fellow DC food blogger Meag’s Eggs connected through theSkimm and I knew we had to make something delicious together. The perfect opportunity came up this past Saturday and when Meaghan suggested baked mac and cheese, I was sold pretty easily. I found a recipe from The Pioneer Woman which was perfect for our collaboration since an egg is also tempered into the roux for the mac and cheese. Plus Ree knows her way around delicous comfort food so I knew this would be a perfect base to our creation.
I mean just look at this yolky goodness. There only thing that would have made this better is if we added bacon. Maybe next time 😉
You can use your favorite mac and cheese recipe and just add the eggs on top, or even use left over mac and cheese to make yourself a delicious brunch.
BTW Meaghan has some great breakfast recipes including step by step poaching technique, which I definitely need to try (since I’ve never poached an egg!) and also avocado roses which I am TOTALLY attempting ASAP.
