Cheesy Ham and Shrimp Macaroni Au Gratin Recipe

Easy cheesy ham shrimp macaroni au gratin recipes
Macaroni Gratin is one of the tastiest pastas and it’s relatively easy to cook too! I often play around with bacon, ham, shrimps, and different types of mushrooms and vegetables; depending on what I’ve in my fridge. This time, I’ve added ham, shrimps, shitake, and broccoli.

I used to cook my #Gratin in casseroles, but not anymore. Don’t you find it cumbersome to clean and scrub the casseroles after eating? These days, I like to cook them in tin foils where I can dump them after eating. No more tiresome washing!

My son’s girlfriend came over for dinner and she’s a small eater like me. So I made two gratins using the bigger oblong tin foils for my hubby and son, and the two ladies using small round foils. It’s so convenient, and no wastage!

Pairing my Macaroni Gratin with Sunflower Desserts!

For our dinner, I made some Garlic Bread and ended the meal with pretty #Sunflower desserts. To tell the truth, I didn’t even realize I’d innocently decorated my desserts in a sunflower design until comments in Facebook streaming in talking about it. How fun!
