Everything you need to know about eating and cooking with curds
Mac and cheese is all-but-universally beloved. Even a bad version is likeable enough. That said, takes that incorporate creative ingredients—or lingering ingredients from the fridge—are even better. Here, andouille sausage, jalapeños, and habaneros offer an update, while a breadcrumb topping gives it a bit of crunch.
If you can get your hands on fresh sausage, by all means do. If not, the smoky supermarket variety—or even kielbasa—will work just fine.
Note: A word to the wise: add additional milk if necessary to achieve a creamy, slightly loose consistency, since the noodles have a tendency to suck up the sauce.
