Does all this hunkering down have you looking into your pantry for some creative inspiration? If you’re like us, you probably have at least one box of mac-and-cheese somewhere on-hand, and this week we’re turning a basic box of mac into five fantastic meals made for kids big and small (and grownups, too!). Turn it into a fun activity for the entire family and tag us at #goodtastegrams to show us your mac-and-cheese creations!
Talk about the perfect pairings! Cheese on cheese? Yes, please! Feel free to customize your Mac-N-Cheese Grilled Cheese with any other leftovers you have on-hand like chopped bacon or brisket. And we also fully support you making this in quesadilla form.
When you want to spice things up but can only find that box of Annie’s in the pantry, add some broccoli, some of your favorite peppers, and boom! You’ve got an upgrade with a kick to it.
We love the Ritz cracker crumble on this mac-and-cheese from Food & Wine. It’s a little different from your standard panko crust and an easy-peasy, mac n cheesy to make! Check out the recipe here.
Mac-and-cheese poutine — we mean, why not?! This fun take on mac-an-cheese with fries from Dixie Chik Cooks is smothered in some fun fixin’s on our hotlist to make tonight! Just don’t be shy with the extra cheese (and bacon).
If you haven’t yet stocked your pantry with mac-and-cheese and chips, we encourage you to do so, if only to make this recipe from Foodie Crush! We love the addictive potato chip coating — it’s the perfect way to add different flavors (try using barbecue chips or sour cream and onion, too!) and create an extra-crispy exterior.
