5 Amazing Mac & Cheese Recipes

Since the weather is finally getting colder where we are, I’m in full comfort food planning mode.

This has led me to realize that I have quite the collection of macaroni and cheese recipes on the blog. Whatever you call it (mac, mac and cheese, macaroni, macaroni and cheese), you can bet these recipes will be just the thing from traditional to creative.

Without further ado, here are 5 amazing Mac & Cheese recipes:

Classic Mac & Cheese

This recipe is just a classic with lots of cheese, seasoned breadcrumbs and pasta cooked perfectly to hold its shape. Also, it feeds a ton of people! It’s custardy, savory and so comforting.

Mac & Cheese Tot Casserole

This is something a little different for mac and cheese lovers, and you’re going to just love it. There’s broccoli mixed in with the pasta and cheese sauce, and tater tots are crisped on top. It’s like a marriage between a classic casserole and mac and cheese.

Spinach Artichoke Mac & Cheese

If you’re a spinach artichoke lover like me, then you will find this mac and cheese to be your ideal meal on a cool fall or winter night. It allows you to play around with pasta shapes and fun cheeses.

Bacon Brussels Mac & Cheese

Here’s another creative take on our favorite side, and it’s got bacon and Brussels sprouts to add lots of flavor. It’s smokey, still got lots of tasty fall veg, and will fill you up for sure!

Truffle Mac & Cheese

I make this mac and cheese almost every¬† year for my husband’s birthday, and it’s an Ina Garten wonder! It will cost you a little more than usual with the truffle butter and mushrooms, but it lends a wonderfully earthy flavor and also makes a lot of mac!
