Canned Corn Is The Key For Better Mac And Cheese
Mac and cheese and canned corn are two classic Southern sides, so it only makes sense to combine them into a single dish for the ultimate comfort food meal.
Corn will bulk up your mac and cheese, while balancing the flavors with a touch of sweetness and adding a bit of moisture to ensure a super creamy dish.
Best of all, this extra ingredient hardly adds any extra time to the prep work. Simply open a can of corn, mix in with your noodles and cheese, and cook as you typically would.
You can also get creative with your choice of corn. Plain sweet corn kernels work, but creamed corn adds a rich, velvety decadence to the dish for the ultimate indulgence.
