If you are anything like me, mac and cheese has always been the ultimate of comfort foods.  As it is getting colder, I love to curl up on the couch with a warm bowl of velvety smooth mac and cheese. While plain old boxed mac and cheese will always have a place in my heart, these recipes take mac and cheese from childhood favorite to gourmet dining experience the whole family will enjoy.

There is something about taking something as decadent as lobster and adding it to a traditional mac and cheese that elevates both flavors and creates something truly decadent. This delicious lobster mac and cheese recipe will be a party in your mouth.

Bacon with almost anything is delicious.  Bacon with macaroni and cheese, sounds great.  Add gruyere to bacon AND mac and cheese, and it’s a special kind of love.

I can already hear what you are thinking.  This is lasagna, not mac and cheese.  Mac and Cheese doesn’t have to be made with elbow macaroni, and this is a cheesy chicken lasagna is a winner.

My favorite kind of meals are the ones that you can just as easily serve to guests as you can serve to your family on a busy weeknight.  This interpretation of mac and cheese is a quick and easy meal that looks as though you spent hours in the kitchen.

Any time I can get my kids to eat more vegetables is a win in my book.  If I’m being honest with myself, I could stand to add some more vegetables to my diet.  This recipe combines colorful and delicious vegetables with pasta and a creamy cheese sauce to perfection.

This recipe truly elevates mac and cheese to a whole new level.  The smokiness from the gouda, the spice from the jalapenos, and the saltiness from the bacon combined with pasta and a velvety cheese sauce are sure to be a crowd pleaser.

    Absolutely fantastic post- I have no idea where to start with so many options, but it’s probably going to be the grilled cheese. Always a sucker for grilled cheese, especially in the winter.
