Not Just Any Old Mac and Cheese

Mac and Cheese is a staple for both college students and post grads. But it doesn't have to be the same thing every time. Spice it up!

Amazing Additions:
  • Salsa. Make it Mexican mac and cheese
  • Hot dogs. Cut them up first. Brings you back to childhood.
  • Peas. Heat up some frozen peas to add to your bowl. Veggies are important! (any other frozen veggies also acceptable)
  • Melt in some more cheese. Add some mozzarella or cheddar to whatever came in the box.
  • Croutons. Adds some texture and flavor if you use the flavored ones.

Any other ideas?


  1. Bacon! It's the best add in ever. Along with a lot of cracked black pepper, garlic, and onion powder. A great seasoning to have on hand for the times when you lack bacon is bacon salt, but use it sparingly. It has great flavor, but the salt content is really high.
