I recently submitted a recipe for the third annual Macaroni & Cheese Blog to celebrate National Cheese Lover’s Day sponsored by the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board. I didn’t need to be asked twice! We love cheese over here and probably have mac & cheese 3 times per week. Okay, that’s partly because my 2 year old loves it so much. He either wants mac & cheese or a nutella/peanut sandwich and really can you blame him…he’s got great taste! He loved being my helper for day.
Besides Mexican food, I cannot seem to get enough Greek and Mediterranean food. I love it, so I thought I would incorporate into a decadent and rich mac & cheese. I was actually inspired by a feta cheese and macaroni gratin that we recently had on vacation that used feta as the main cheese in the dish. It was so rich, creamy, and delicious that we actually had to go back to the restaurant and order it again.
This is my version all jazzed up with those wonderful Mediterranean flavors that I love. I wanted to make it a little heartier so that we could enjoy it as a meal with a green salad, but could also pair it with a nice New York Strip steak too. Honestly, I think the kids liked this too much! Even my regular mac & cheese loving 2 year old had seconds. I won’t tell you that my husband went around and ate bites off of everyone’s plate (even after having seconds as well).
