Alton Brown Mac and Cheese Recipe

This Step-by-Step Photo of Alton Brown's Mac 'n' Cheese Will Make You Want It Now

In case you had any doubt in your mind, Alton Brown's recipe for baked macaroni and cheese looks amazing. The chef regrammed a fan's photo of the step-by-step process, and everything from the roux to the panko breadcrumb topping is making our mouths water. What makes Alton's recipe different from most is his smart use of spices — there's ground mustard and smoked paprika to give it an extra punch of flavor. "If you haven't had a good reason to buy smoked paprika, now you do," Alton wrote on his recipe. The recipe also calls for an egg, an ingredient traditionally found in Southern casseroles, which creates a custardy texture. Anyone else suddenly feel the need to make macaroni and cheese NOW?
