Boxed Mac And Cheese – Elevated

Anyone else love being a kid and eating some boxed Mac & Cheese?! 🙋🏽‍♀️ Mac & cheese is my go to comfort food. I love it anyway, any cheese (most cheeses), from a boxed, homemade or even a microwavable cup. I won’t hide it – I still will eat like I am a college student. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Sometimes life doesn’t have time to make a full homemade mac and you need the quick convenience of a college microwaveable meal! Believe it or not, Andy is not a mac and cheese fan. 😱 I know, I don’t understand it myself. I can occasionally get him to eat baked mac and cheese or a seafood mac – but we will save those recipes for another blog post!😜

Back to boxed mac and cheese. Do you have a favorite box brand? Do you have a preference of powder cheese versus a cheese sauce? Personally, I rather have a cheese sauce. I find that it is cheesier, creamier and tastes less like a box compared to the powder cheese. 😂 Some of my favorite brands include Cracker Barrel and Velveeta. I have recently tried Taste of Inspirations, which I would also recommend! So how do you make your box mac and cheese next level? You elevate it and make it your own!

  1. I love white cheddar sea shells with creamy sauce and like to add fresh tomatoes. The problem is finding it. Cracker Barrell is the best
