Cheesy mac, macaroni and cheese, mac and cheese, or hot cheese. What do you call it? There are so many names for the family friendly comfort food! Aside of tender macaroni, this cheesy mac recipe calls for Wisconsin cheddar and blue cheeses. A little prosciutto is tossed in too, for salty, smoky flavor.
Macaroni and cheese is quite possibly one of my favorite dishes of all time. You can find a lot of variations of basic mac and cheese, mainly because it’s so versatile. With meat or without, it is warm, creamy and comforting. It works equally well as a main dish as it does a side dish.
That’s why it’s often gracing the table at pitch-in’s and family gatherings. Most people have their own tried and true family favorite recipe. The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board encouraged me to create my own version using blue cheese. Loving a challenge, I was thrilled to do it!
Thinking outside of the box, I used 2 of my favorite Wisconsin cheeses, blue and cheddar, to create a new twist on an old favorite.
A crunchy top layer of Panko bread crumbs and prosciutto give way to the creamy pasta twists underneath. It’s tangy, with just the right amount of blue cheese to enhance the flavor profile of this meal.
By far, this is the most flavorful and decadent cheesy mac you will ever eat!
I call it cheesy mac, but what do you call this creamy comfort food?
