Description
Creamy, cheesy, rich, and comforting, macaroni and cheese is the favorite side dish for all generations From classics with various cheeses to more exotic fare--with lobster, vegetables, pancetta, beef, and many more combinations--this timeless standard deserves a second look.
Consider the Goat Cheese and Boursin Mac and Cheese, Chesapeake Crab Mac and Cheese, or Mac and Cheese Souffle with Country Ham for a dinner party, a book club meeting, or a holiday side dish. Start with Mac and Cheese Canapes or Mac and Cheese Spring Rolls, and then have Grand Marnier Orzo Pudding or Macaroni with Pecan Caramel Mascarpone for a sweet dessert
Author Ellen Brown has collected and developed more than 80 recipes, most of which are adapted from beloved dishes from restaurants around the country like Red Rooster in New York, Nosh in Dallas, and The Tipsy Pig in San Francisco. Recreate your favorite cheesy restaurant dishes at home: the sky's the limit for the humble mac & cheese.
