Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 7 comments

Inspired by a TV sitcom, the Sloppy Jessica is a gloriously greasy, wonderfully messy beast of macaroni-and-cheese chili stuffed into a pizza-style bun that's dripping with melted mozzarella cheese. More

This recipe, baked inside the pumpkin—a trick inspired by Dorie Greenspan and Ruth Reichl, both famous for their stuffed-pumpkin recipes (among other things)—simply knocked our socks off with flavor and a stylish yet homey presentation. More

Limburger Mac and Cheese from 'Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Limburger cheese carries with it many false assumptions and wrinkled noses. It is often avoided based on reputation alone. But Limburger fans know that if you're willing to get past its strong odor, you'll be greeted with a soft grassy cheese with background notes of funky mushrooms. Such fans will often be seen eating Limburger on sandwiches with onions or sardines, but a much better use is in Tenaya Darlington's Limburger mac and cheese from Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese.

Red Rooster's Mac and Greens

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Marcus Samuelsson's penchant for Southern American-African-Swedish fusion cuisine always makes him an interesting chef to watch. His recipe for Mac and Greens, adapted in Ellen Brown's Mac & Cheese, fits right into his oeuvre. The recipe title is apt, as his mac contains just as much greenery as pasta. Braised collards and bok choy pair perfectly with the gooey cheddar-Gruyère-Parmesan mix, and the hints of soy and coconut lend glutamate-rich depth. But don't be fooled, this is no health food--there's bacon, heavy cream, and plenty of cheese in each and every nook and cranny. More

Mac and Cheese Soufflé with Country Ham from Sweet Potatoes Restaurant

Serious Eats Kate Williams 1 comment

This soufflé-like casserole is adapted from Sweet Potatoes Restaurant in Winston-Salem, and it offers much more than just macaroni, cheese, and eggs. The custard base contains sour cream in addition to heavy cream for added tang and texture; the pasta is mixed with not just mild yellow cheddar, but also blue cheese and Parmesan. Tiny morsels of country ham aren't really necessary, but can you really say no to a little extra pork? More

Skillet Fried Mac and Cheese from Zingerman's Roadhouse

Serious Eats Kate Williams 2 comments

Before picking up Ellen Brown's Mac & Cheese, I assumed all fried macaroni and cheese must be breaded and deep-fried a la Paula Deen. But the Skillet-Fried Cheddar Mac and Cheese, adapted from Zingerman's Roadhouse in Ann Arbor, is a far more delicate affair. The sauce is made exclusively with raw-milk cheddar, and the final fry is in a tablespoon, rather than a couple quarts, of oil. This step exists for the sole purpose of creating large crispy pieces of cheese akin to Italian frico. More

The Coterie Room's Sweet Onion Mac and Cheese

While I am almost always partial to baked macaroni and cheese, I sometimes lust after my childhood Velveeta-based concoctions. In Mac & Cheese, Ellen Brown adapts The Coterie Room's Sweet Onion Mac and Cheese to satisfy that craving. More

La Laiterie's Herbed Mac and Cheese

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

This adaptation of La Laiterie's casserole in Mac & Cheese is classic mac and cheese at its best: rich and soothing, but with a deeper complexity from the woody herbs and funky brie. It's a riff on the mac and cheese from La Laiterie in Providence. More

Gluten-Free Tuesday: Macaroni and Cheese

Serious Eats Elizabeth Barbone 6 comments

Was it impossible to make a macaroni and cheese at home that was both flavorful and saucy? When I started eating gluten-free, grabbing a box of Stouffer's to satisfy a mac and cheese craving was no longer an option. I needed to find a recipe replacement. More

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 16 comments

When Bobby Flay decided to tackle mac and cheese for one of his Throwdown! challenges, he set off for Philadelphia to go head-to-head with soul food queen Delilah Widner, of Delilah's. Instead of going the traditional mac route, Flay decided to add a few ingredients from an equally starchy, rich dish, pasta alla carbonara. More
