Panko Macaroni & Cheese Casserole

Ever since I was preggers with Paxton, I have loved Mac & Cheese…

but it had to be THE BOXED KIND. 

9 months PG with Paxton

Oh good heavens, I am so ashamed to admit that to you. 

The fake cheese tasted so good! I ate a whole box for lunch.  Eeek!  {with a salad!!!!}

  I have been on the hunt for a homemade gooey, cheesy Mac & Cheese to replace my addiction ever since, and I haven’t found one that we like.

  Well, when I saw this recipe from The Sunflower Supper Club I knew I had to give it a go.  I mean, it had sour cream in it! How could I go wrong?  They don’t have one recipe on their site that we haven’t LOOOOVED.   This Mac and Cheese was no exception!

  Kim calls it Creamy One Pot Macaroni and Cheese, but since I used more than just a pot, I felt like I would be lying to you, so we have dubbed it a new name at our house based on my favorite part, the buttery Panko on top!
