Macaroni and Cheese has been a longtime family favorite. The kids will take it out of a box, homemade, or even somewhere in the middle. As long as it’s got noodles and cheese, the kids are happy. I personally like to feed my family a meal where I apply at least a little bit of effort, and can add my own touches. Lately we’ve been extremely busy, and I joke that October has been my busiest month out of the year. With little time for dinner most nights, I’ve turned to Three Bridges Creamy Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese Kit.
The Mac & Cheese Kit is fantastic because it takes literally 3 minutes to put together/make, and it tastes like homemade macaroni and cheese. What’s even better is moms and dads can feel good about this first ever refrigerated Mac & Cheese because there is absolutely nothing artificial about it. Three Bridges Mac & Cheese is made with simple and clean ingredients, and is completely BST-free (goodbye, mystery cheese dust!).
So, where do my personal touches to a fantastically easy meal come in? Who doesn’t love Macaroni and Cheese Mix-ins? I decided to get creative in the kitchen this week, and dig through my refrigerator and cupboards and came up with 6 different mix-ins the family might like.
I suggest having a Mac & Cheese bar where everyone can select their own mix-ins. Add one, or even a few, but if you have picky ones in the family, they can leave their Three Bridges Mac & Cheese as-is, and they’re still in for a treat. With just a couple of added minutes to chop and prepare the mix-ins, you’ve still got an easy dinner in 5 minutes! Here are the mix-ins I came up with:
- Spicy sausage (or regular hot dogs)
- Chopped bell pepper
- Diced green chiles
- Sliced black olives
- Cooked broccoli
- Chopped sun-dried tomatoes
