Souffléd Macaroni and Cheese

May 3, 2017

Author Notes: This is a totally unconventional but absolutely delicious recipe for a light and fluffy mac and cheese. A cross between a souffle and macaroni and cheese with the addition of pimento and breadcrumbs. The recipe comes from Clemantine Paddleford a recipe developer, cookbook author, pilot and flapper from the 1920's. I adapted this recipe keeping the basics but adding some of my own touches, sdebrango
