From tot to teen, kids have grown up eating macaroni & cheese. For adults, sitting down to enjoy this quintessential American dish brings instant comfort.
On July 14, celebrate Macaroni & Cheese Day by giving this classic a gourmet makeover.
If your only experience with macaroni & cheese has been throwing together processed ingredients from a blue box or nuking a red box in the microwave, prepare to pamper your palate by making the real deal.
From shopping for the basic ingredients of pasta, butter, milk and cheese to stirring the sauce in the pot, you’ll discover how easily this dish can be prepared from scratch.
Mature palates can celebrate Macaroni & Cheese Day by creating gourmet variations using lobster, truffles, and artisan cheeses. Elegant enough for guests and ideal replacements for entrées.
Casual celebration? Opt for a simple cheddar sauce and dish it out as an accompaniment to fried chicken or barbecue fare. Alternately, a big platter of buffalo chicken macaroni & cheese with lots of beer to tame the heat may be just what your game-day pals need.
You can stir just about anything into this classic dish, from tomatoes and broccoli to sausage, bacon, peppers and nuts. Whatever variation you choose to celebrate Macaroni & Cheese Day, your taste buds will forbid you from ever going back to the blue box again.
