Instant Pot Macaroni and Cheese
Time to come to pressure
instant pot, macaroni and cheese, pressure cooker
I prefer elbows, cavatappi or rotini
House Seasoning Blend
shredded cheddar cheese
shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Add pasta, water, House Seasoning Blend, dry mustard and butter to the Instant Pot.
Set Instant Pot to cook on Manual for 6 minutes.
When cooking is finished, quick release the pressure.
There will still be some liquid in the pot - do not drain it.
Stir in the cream cheese and allow it to melt.
Slowly stir in 1/4 cup milk until combined.
Add the cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses and stir to combine.
Slowly stir in remaining milk until you reach your desired consistency. You may not need all of the remaining milk.

For an adult Macaroni and Cheese preplace the Monterey Jack cheese with Smoked Gouda and finish off with a little truffle oil.
Make this Instapot Recipe an even more hearty or decadent meal by adding ham or bacon at the end.
For the best flavor, always try and freshly grate your cheeses. There really is a big difference. I love this grater.
If your family loves the crunchy top, transfer to a casserole dish and add bread crumbs and broil for a few minutes.
For an Italian twist try adding fontina cheese for a butter flavor and parmesan cheese on top.
