Could it possibly get any better than mac 'n' cheese for dinner? Probably not. Which is why we've included not one, but three mac 'n' cheese recipe options for your dining pleasure. You're welcome.
Really the best-ever mac 'n' cheese: We ran this recipe for "really the best-ever mac 'n' cheese" a few years ago -- and though I don't know if I would agree that it's the best ever, I love the fact that it takes just over an hour to make, perfect if you're thinking about what to put on the table for dinner tonight.
Queen and Diva's mac 'n' cheese: With no less than four types of cheese, mac 'n' cheese couldn't get much better than this version. Extra rich and creamy, the secret ingredients include a can of mushroom soup and sour cream for tang. Assemble it ahead of time, if you'd like, then refrigerate until ready to bake.
Famous Dave's mac 'n' cheese: A medley of original flavors make this mac 'n' cheese shine. It starts with four different types of cheeses, the sauce built out with corn niblets, spicy jalapenos, fresh parsley and a touch of barbecue sauce. Top it with a crumbly breadcrumb topping and bake it until its wonderful aroma is simply too much to bear. (This dish can also be assembled ahead of time and refrigerated until you're ready to bake.)
