Are y’all tired of cheese-related posts yet? If so (which I don’t understand), don’t fret. This is the last one…for a while. 🙂 This deluxe mac & cheese incorporates a bit of the French mimolette cheese I was introduced to at the Cheeses of Europe event I mentioned a few posts back. The timing is perfect, though, because Thanksgiving is days away.
Just in case you haven’t guessed from the title, this post is about macaroni and cheese, which is a staple dish at our table. I have cooked Thanksgiving dinner for my family the last three years running and it. goes. down. I take entertaining very seriously. Mac and cheese makes an appearance each year. I have tweaked the recipe here and there since I first attempted it in my college days. Sometimes adding chipotle and other times using white cheddar. This rendition is a relatively simple, dare I say classic one featuring sharp and mild cheddars, the aforementioned mimolette, and BACON.
The bacon is totally optional but if you’re a fan of the swine, it never hurts. Either way, I hope you’ll add this to your Thanksgiving dinner menu…that you have hopefully already planned and done a test version of. I’m not the only person who does that, right? Did I mention I take this very seriously? Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!
I hope you’ll try this dish and love it. Thanks for reading!
