#reddit52weeksofcooking Week 8: Family Recipes - My Dad's Mac & Cheese; this dish has become legend in my family - no one can make mac & cheese as good as my dad, so no one tries. It's a major part of my childhood memories, and the thing my dad makes when we visit as a special treat for us. There's no real recipe and certainly no measurements - you measure cheese with your heart! Just don't be skimpy with it... Cook the macaroni to al dente, drain, and stir in pats of butter and some milk (not too much). The essential part is that my dad uses both shredded and block cheese - especially sharp and extra sharp cheddar. We didn't have a lot of money growing up, so there's no fancy cheese in this - it's cheese you can buy with coupons - DO NOT go to the cheese shop of the Wegmans, go to the dairy aisle. I used shredded mild cheddar, monterey jack, and mozzarella - stir those into your macaroni. Then you layer your block slices of cheese on top - I used Vermont extra sharp white cheddar, and orange sharp cheddar. Then top with a butter/panko breadcrumb mix and paprika. Bake at 350° for 20-30 minutes - as long as it takes the milk to absorb, and for those delicious crispy bits to develop around the edges. Serve with a side salad for comedic effect. #familyrecipes#redditchallenge#cookingchallenge#mydadsrecipe#macandcheese#cheddar#calories#homemade#homecooked#dinnertonight

• Sauté one cup each of chopped onions, celery and carrots [I left carrots out of mine because I’m not a fan of cooked carrots! 😣] in butter until limp and then add a clove of garlic (smashed) and make sure it doesn’t burn. Set aside.
• Add black pepper but no salt because the ham is salty.
• In a large pot, put in 2 cups of split peas, 4 cups of low-sodium chicken broth, and 4 cups of water along with ham hocks or a hambone with some ham (not a lot!) attached to it. I used a Honeybaked brand hambone.
• Cook for one hour, remove the bone, cut the ham off of it in small pieces, and add it to the soup.
• Then add the sautéed vegetables, one tablespoon of parsley and one teaspoon of thyme.
• If you want, for thickening, add two slices of crustless French or Italian bread (very fresh) torn into pieces.
• Add a bay leaf.
• Cook one more hour and serve! #bonappetit! 👌🏼
