Think outside the box this Thanksgiving.
Chances are your Thanksgiving feast is missing a side. No, we’re not talking about stuffing, mashed potatoes and homemade biscuits — nor Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, and green bean casseroles (though these are all non-negotiable in our opinion!). We’re talking gooey, decadent Thanksgiving mac and cheese. This cheesy crowd-favorite has a place among the more traditional Thanksgiving side dishes. Hear us out: It’s cozy, typically vegetarian, delicious, goes great with turkey, and you don’t have to do anything fancy to those leftovers. Just reheat and eat in your sweatpants (while you online shop ... Black Friday anyone?).
Plus, this dish is easy to customize, so whether its easy baked macaroni and cheese, stovetop mac and cheese, or any variation in-between, it can easily fit into your Turkey Day menu. Of course, our best mac and cheese recipe goes with any theme, but you can get creative, too. Looking for a southern baked macaroni and cheese? Fold chopped pimiento peppers into the sauce. Craving more of a kick? Check out our recipes that make the most of buffalo hot sauce or spicy green chiles. Looking for a healthier Thanksgiving spread? Opt for our lighter version, made with whole wheat rotini and low-fat cheese. The options are truly endless.
SmartyPants: REMEMBER when Antonin Scalia died, in February of 2016, and Obama nominated MERRICK GARLAND on March 16, 2016, and Mitch McConnell justified his decision to BLOCKADE the vacancy on the grounds that neither party would approve a Supreme Court justice during an election year. He made up a NEW RULE.
