Mr. Food: Loaf Pan Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Our Loaf Pan Mac ‘n’ Cheese is a unique way to serve macaroni and cheese to your family. Since it’s baked in a loaf pan, all you have to do is slice and serve. Everyone in the family is going to love this ooey-gooey-cheesy dinner that’s loaded with hot dog pieces. In fact, don’t be surprised if they start cheering, “Hot diggity dog!”

What You’ll Need

  • 2 (6-ounce) packages macaroni and cheese
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 4 hot dogs, cut into 1/2-inch slices (see Note)

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and return to pot. Add butter, the cheese packets, and mustard; mix until thoroughly combined. Stir in eggs and 1-1/2 cups cheese; mix well. Stir in hot dog slices. Spoon mixture into loaf pan.
  3. Bake 35 minutes, then sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Continue baking 15 minutes, or until golden. Let sit 10 minutes, then slice and serve immediately.
