Restaurant Style Macaroni and Cheese Recipe – easy to make Mac N Cheese recipe! Ingredients include macaroni, onions, mushrooms, bacon, cheddar cheese, olive oil, butter, evaporated milk, flour, black pepper, salt, ground mustard, crushed bread sticks.
I’m huge fan of the Food Network’s triple D – Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. I like to watch it and get ideas for new things to cook. The goal here was to come up with a recipe that would be even half as good as the famous Clarkston Union Mac & Cheese!
Unfortunately, I somehow have to make up my own recipes to try and get to what they’ve got. Recently I saw an awesome mac n cheese dish that gave me some ideas. I know it can’t be as good as what they serve, but here’s my version that I came up with:
