Car camping with the family? This mac ‘n’ cheese recipe is a winner.


This easy macaroni and cheese recipe requires some prep work before heading off to camp that will make the day-of cooking an absolute breeze.

While you’re still at home, start by making smoked paprika breadcrumbs with torn pieces of fresh ciabatta bread. These breadcrumbs will be a crunchy added bonus to the finished bowls of macaroni and cheese. You’ll also have to make the cheese sauce ahead of time, too.

Store the finished sauce in a camp cooler for later. Now at camp, all you have to do is cook some pasta and add the cheese mixture and breadcrumbs on top.
