Looking in your pantry for some creative inspiration? We’re willing to bet most of you have at least one box of mac and cheese on hand, and this week, we’re turning that basic box into a handful of fantastic meals that will delight diners of any age. Whip up one of these recipes with the entire family, then tag us at #goodtastegrams to show us your cheesy creations!
This creamy, next-level skillet dish from Lemon Tree Dwelling is reminiscent of the spinach artichoke dip party classic, but this rendition dials the taste up with white cheddar, smoked Gouda, and Parmesan. Want to go even further to boost this family favorite? Mix in a protein of your choice to make it a complete dinner.
Talk about a perfect pairing! Cheese on cheese? Yes, please! Feel free to customize this Delish recipe with any leftovers you have in the fridge, like brisket or sautéed onions. We also fully support you making this in quesadilla form.
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 dish to make!
Mac and cheese poutine—who wouldn’t love that? This fun take on mac and cheese smothered fries from Dixie Chik Cooks features some savory fixins on our hot list right now. Just don’t be shy with the extra cheese (and bacon).
If you’ve got a bag of potato chips in the cupboard (and, really, who doesn’t?), you’ve got to try these chip-crusted balls from Foodie Crush. We love the addictive coating—not only the satisfying crunch, but the opportunity to add all kinds of different flavors: barbeqcue, salt and vinegar, sour cream and onion, cheddar … you name it!
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 this upgrade with a kick to it from I Am a Food Blog.
