Hungerpots are my new favourite way to cook: just throw everything in at the same time, give it a stir, and you’re done! It could hardly be easier! This one would be yummy with some added chicken pieces or prawns (shrimp), but we loved it as-is.
As soon as I started making wonderpots, I knew I needed to find a mac & cheese recipe, but everything I came across wasn’t quite what I was looking for. After reading loads of different recipes, I came up this version and am thrilled to say that it was a delicious success! There are a few small extra steps (one of which is optional . . . ) that might technically disqualify this as a wonderpot, but I won’t tell if you won’t. 😉
If you’re a wonderpot (or “hungerpot” as I like to call them!) novice, there isn’t much to know. You just throw everything in a pot and cook it all together at the same time and that’s that! As far as I can tell, this recipe was adapted by Apron Strings from what was the original “wonderpot” which was first published by Martha Stewart. I’ve adapted it further to include some veg.
This dish is delicious as is, but it would also be really yummy with some ground sausage, or sliced kielbasa (any meat would obviously need to be cooked thoroughly first). You could easily add in some uncooked shrimp to the pot if you wanted to keep things super simple!
This is another favourite in the Hungerford household. Not only is it delicious, but it is fun and easy to make! Just dump all the ingredients in the pot and you’re done. It is a perfect weeknight meal!

I tried this pasta with peanut sauce recipe a few weeks ago and though it was pretty bland and unremarkable, I thought it had potential. A few tweaks later and it was delicious! Both kids loved it and Petey even had seconds! Continue Reading…
