How many possible Macaroni & Cheese variations are there? The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (WMMB) is determined to find out. For the fourth year in a row, WMMB has invited 30 of the country’s food bloggers to create new variations for the “30 Days, 30 Ways with Macaroni and Cheese” blog.
The blog re-launched on Jan. 20 in celebration of National Cheese Lover’s Day. The site offers a new blogger-created recipe each day for 30 days. The blog now includes more than 100 Macaroni & Cheese recipes in a variety of categories: easy, gourmet, spicy and vegetarian. There is even a section devoted solely to Macaroni & Cheese recipes with bacon.
This year, many bloggers will be putting an innovative spin on Macaroni & Cheese with recipes that feature flavors inspired by other classic dishes.
Here’s a sampling of this year’s recipes:
- Monte Cristo Mac and Cheese Nuggets from Take a Megabite are bite-sized nuggets of fried macaroni and cheese with Wisconsin Gruyere, turkey and crispy prosciutto served with raspberry jam.
- Dinner or Dessert goes big with a Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese featuring Wisconsin Cheddar, smoked red onions and a topping of Texas toast crumble.
- Country Cleaver starts things off with Spinach and Artichoke Mac and Cheese. This recipe rivals its namesake dip in creamy deliciousness with Havarti and Parmesan cheese.
