15 Delicious Ways to Make Macaroni & Cheese Better

Decadent Brie Macaroni & Cheese En Croute

“This mac & cheese is one guilty pleasure and ooh la la so French! Holds up well in the refrigerator to be prepared ahead and then build a day or two later. I enjoy creating recipes that I can prep in stages so I'm not in the kitchen for too long at the end of a big day.” - Brenda

Jalapeno Popper Mac and Cheese

“This mac and cheese covers all of the flavours and textures of poppers from the cheese to the jalapenos and even the crispy bread crumb coating! Poppers are usually filled with cream cheese and/or cheddar cheese and this mac and cheese uses plenty of both! The crispy breadcrumb coating is easy to add to mac and cheese by throwing it into a baking dish and topping it with buttered bread crumbs to bake until golden brown and crispy and all sorts of good!” - Kevin

Grilled Mac n Cheese Sandwich with Bacon

“Bacon and mac & cheese rolled into one sandwich... pure decadence and deliciousness. The outside is buttery and a little crisp from the cheese. Inside, creamy mac & cheese and a smoky flavor from the bacon. Although great alone, this would be yummy with a little bowl of tomato soup too. Total comfort food!” - Kitchen Crew

French Onion Mac and Cheese

“This is not the mac and cheese you grew up eating... it's super rich and decadent. The creamy cheese sauce is a nice mixture of the mild Fontina with the zesty Asiago. Caramelized onions add a wonderful flavor and texture. Topping this, though, with croutons and Gruyere brings this mac and cheese to a whole new level. This is not a recipe you'd make every day, but great for special occasions.” - Kitchen Crew

JD's Fried Macaroni and Cheese

“Prepare for big smiles after watching someone bite into these macaroni and cheese balls. Once you bite through the crispy outside, the center of the ball is gooey, cheesy and everything you love about mac and cheese. Great for game day, girls night or even a party appetizer. They do take a bit of time, but worth every minute.” - Kitchen Crew

Karen's Mac and Cheese with Bacon

“I'm not sure there are many flavors that pair better than bacon and cheese. The more cheese (and bacon) the better and this recipe is packed with both! I love the variety of cheeses... makes for creamy mac and cheese. The bacon adds a bit of a salty, smoky flavor that compliments the cheesy goodness.” - Kitchen Crew
