Gourmet mac and cheese is a variation of the classic macaroni and cheese dish where additional ingredients are added for texture and more complex flavor. You can craft a gourmet mac and cheese using several cheeses with big flavors, or you can add meat, seafood, vegetables, herbs, and spices to create an unforgettable fiesta of flavor. Topping mac and cheese with Panko breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, bits of crispy bacon, or onions adds new levels of intriguing texture.
Choosing the best gourmet recipe comes down to personal taste. But the recipes typically created by chefs feature interesting pastas, a cheese sauce made from a bechamel sauce, and surprising flavor combinations.
