Macaroni and Cheese Royale

Baked Macaroni and Cheese Royale - better than boxed, comfort food.

Growing up, I didn’t eat Kraft Mac&Cheese. Not unless I was at someone else’s house. My mom couldn’t stand the smell of it and gagged. She ate it all the time as a kid, to the point where it was gross.

So the typical ‘kid comfort food’ wasn’t common in our house, and as an adult, I still am not a huge fan of the boxed stuff, even though they removed a lot of the bad bad stuff recently, it’s still not very good for you. My kids don’t really enjoy the boxed stuff either; they prefer to eat this version with all the veggies and flavor instead!

I found a recipe on Pinterest this afternoon for crockpot soup (I LOVE Crockpots, best invention ever!) But as I went to make it, I found that I would have to tweak it slightly, which I tend to do anyways, as that is why I cook in the first place, to make stuff the way *I* like it.
So I’ve included both the original recipe, and my own version, you’ll have to wait and see how it turns out, as I just threw it together and have to wait for it to cook.
