Filipino-Style Cheesy Baked Macaroni

I made this to celebrate my Tatay’s birthday in heaven last November 2. My tatay loves this kind of macaroni but his recipe has pork liver in it which I don’t know how to cook. So I just made my version instead.

I miss my tatay so much. He is such a cheerful and positive person. Whenever I feel down or have problems, he manages to cheer me up even if I don’t tell him what the problem is. I actually miss him and my nanay especially because I already realized how hard adulting can be… heehee.

The good thing is now that I’m an adult I can cook myself some comfort food whenever I’m not feeling so good — like this Filipino-Style Cheesy Baked Macaroni.


Filipino-Style Cheesy Baked Macaroni

See how cheesy and creamy it is?


  • This recipe is a lot for our family of four. Since I made this to celebrate my Tatay’s birthday in heaven, I gave some to my sis.
  • I figured that if I’m going to make this for my family only, I should halve this recipe but still use 500g ground beef to make for a meatier result. Oh and maybe add bacon.

Tomorrow is the start of another week and the monday right after a week of vacation (sem break). Good luck to me…hihihi. For now, I shall leave you with my recipe and I hope you give it a try.
