MACON, Ga. — Just in time for the holidays, we at 13WMAZ wanted to share some of our favorite Holiday recipes with you!
For this episode, chef Stewart Hardy prepared classic baked Mac and Cheese, just in time for Thanksgiving.
Hardy says he's been cooking for 18 years, and is the executive chef instructor at the Compass Rose Café, which is at Hutchings College and Career Academy.
Hardy says this dish may be classic, but can be even better by adding some southern flair.
You can dress up your mac with so e apple smoked gouda cheese, real Applewood smoked bacon, and a Cajun crumb topping.
Hardy says this is also a quick meal to cook - once you get the dish all prepped and make it from scratch, you only need to pop it in the oven for about 15 minutes before it is ready to go.
However, you can also plan ahead and make the dish in advance to save some time on the day of the actual Thanksgiving feast.
You can make it the day before and pop it in the fridge overnight, and then pop it in the oven for about 30 minutes before eating.
