There’s nothing more comforting than welcoming the weekend with a hot plate of Mac n Cheese for brunch. This dish is delicious and easy to make.

If you’re thinking of ways to tweak plain and simple mac ‘n’ cheese, consider trying the following versions :
Cauliflower mac ‘n’ cheese
This baked delight is going to be a sure shot hit with everyone. The classic mac ‘n’ cheese gets a nutritious boost as you add veggies to it. Adding the cauliflower in mac ‘n’ cheese will also help make it easier in ingesting as cauliflower is a good source of fibre. Please note that the pasta needs to be slightly undercooked as it will continue to cook in the oven along with the cauliflower. In case you want to give the dish a complete health boost, you could even replace the macaroni with the cauliflower. Many people on keto diet claim that this has helped them to lose weight. Alternatively, you could add chicken to your mac ‘n’ cheese preparation, to make it rich in protein.
Mac ‘n’ cheese cups
This recipe involves a visual overhaul of the entire dish with the freedom to add in ingredients like bacon to your mac ‘n’ cheese cup!

This is also a great snack to pack for your children’s lunch box.
Crunchy mac ‘n’ cheese slice
This recipe is simple, quick and delicious. Crunchy mac ‘n’ cheese slice revamps the dish’s texture from saucy to crispy. The simple recipe involves baking the mac ‘n’ cheese in the oven for about 30 minutes. The cheese that you decide to put in this dish doesn’t necessarily need to be just grated cheddar. To make things more interesting, you can combine grated cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan.
Mac ‘n’ cheese pizza
