Creamy and Delicious home made macaroni and cheese in the pressure cooker


What's Cookin!


Hi there! Looking for a quick and delicious meal in about 10 minutes? Good, you have the right recipe for your pressure cooker. My kids were always a huge fan of Kraft macaroni and cheese when they were little. But if you really look at the box and all those fake ingredients, its really questionable what exactly is in that cheese packet. You can whip up macaroni and cheese in the pressure cooker in no time at all. Plus your kids will love it even more. Not to mention, so will you.

We are here to take the stress out of pressure.

Want to add an extra something special...try 8 oz. of lobster chopped and mix in the end with the milk, butter and cheese. Adding slowly to the mix. This was fantastic when I tried it the second time around after the basic mac and cheese. We decided to get a little fancy.

When your meal is finished cooking it naturally goes to NPR. You don’t have to do anything actually but let it run its cycle.

This is my go to recipe for Mac and cheese – the best that I have tried to date and my husband loves it.

This recipe sounds sooo yummy! I love all the pics but do you have a condensed form I can print out. Say 1 or 2 pages instead of 13?

Hi Debbie, I am working on converting all my recipes to a printable card format. I don’t have it yet..but my newer recipes all have it. It’s taking some time to convert.
