Fired-Up Macaroni & Cheese

Fired-Up Macaroni & Cheese

We have been making this recipe for years and years. It is such a fun spin on the classic macaroni and cheese dish.

The cayenne and Tabasco fire up the dish and give it so much life! But don’t worry, it doesn’t have too much of a kick. We do not like super spicy, and this dish passes our test. It has a little fire and extra flavor, but not too much.

If you do not like any spice at all, then just leave out the cayenne pepper and Tabasco. But if you love a good kick, then add extra! You really can’t go wrong.

Every once in a while, we like to mix things up and make this dish a little more sophisticated. To do this, we use a past other than macaroni, like a penne. This just makes it seem a little fancier for some reason.

If you would like to mix things up even more, you can leave out the bread crumbs entirely. If you are doing this, top the casserole with more grated Cheddar cheese for a cheesy crust. Either way, you will get a delicious macaroni and cheese with a crisp topping.

One of the best things about this dish is that it can be made ahead! This makes dinner time even easier. Put it all together early in the day when you have the time. Then add the topping and bake just before serving.

So next time you are craving some macaroni and cheese, give this yummy recipe a try. We love to serve it with fresh broccoli and some fruit. The whole family will love this one!
