Step 2 – Then add in the heavy whipping cream and the milk. Season it with salt and pepper and cut the tablespoons of butter into 4 individual pieces. Place a piece in each of the corners of the pan. 

Step 3 – Cover the dish with foil and bake it for 45-60 minutes. Bake until the pasta is tender and cooked through with a creamy sauce.

Step 4 – Remove the pan from the oven and remove the foil.  Stir the pasta mixture together with the melted cheese sauce. Top with shredded cheese then serve.

Tiktock Mac and Cheese Recipe Tips:

  • Noodles – There is no need to boil the noodles al dente before placing in the baking dish. The ingredients that are added will cook the noodles in the oven.
  • Baking Mac and Cheese – Cover the mac and cheese with aluminum foil before baking. Cook the mac and cheese until the pasta is tender. Make sure to watch closely as you may need to add a little more water.
  • Shredded Cheese – We recommend shredding cheese yourself instead of using pre-shredded cheese. Pre-shredded cheese may not melt as well and has added ingredients.
  • Baking Dish – Make sure to spray the baking dish with cooking spray. This helps for cleanup and serving the mac and cheese.

Can I Add a Topping to the Mac and Cheese?

Yes, this Viral Tiktok Recipe would be delicious with a crunchy topping. We recommend combining melted butter and breadcrumbs and sprinkle over the top of the mac and cheese.

Turn the oven on a low broil and place mac and cheese back in the oven. Allow the top to get crispy for about 2 minutes and then serve. Watch closely so the topping does not burn.
