Macaroni & Cheese Mini Quesadilla's

Have I told you how much I love macaroni and cheese? Oh no, you didn’t know that?

Well, I L-O-V-E macaroni and cheese. If I were ever banished to an island, I would take MY macaroni and cheese with me. I would have stomach issues {no further details needed, I’m sure}, but I would be fat and happy.

I was delighted to make macaroni and cheese for our family on Easter. It was probably the BEST macaroni and cheese I have made thus far in my life. I used the crockpot like I normally do, but decided to broil it for about 30 minutes. It was fantastic! I love the broiled cheese flavor.

Because I made so much of it, I have been eating it all week. Last night I finished off the remainder of it. It was sad. However, I decided to put it to good use. Check out these delicious Macaroni and Cheese Mini Quesadillas.
