Mac n' cheese has got to be America's staple food. Whenever there is a family gathering or event, this dish is always present in any dining table. Best paired with steak and potatoes, mac n' cheese is one of the best American foods that you can prepare for your family on any occasion. Here are eight ways on how to cook this comforting home food at home. 

The Classic Way

There is no other best way to cook mac n' cheese but to cook it the traditional way. Using elbow macaroni, some breadcrumbs, and some powdered mustard, this classic mac n' cheese technique never goes out of style. Every homeowner should know how to cook classic mac n' cheese, given how iconic and homey it is when being served in the table. 

Spicy Mac N' Cheese

Everything gets better when you add a little hint of spice on it. Although mac n' cheese can be considered a comfort dish, you can always put a twist to it. If you like spicy food, you can still make your own version of spicy mac n' cheese! You can add a hint of spiciness and add cayenne pepper powder or maybe a pepper jack cheese. 

International Mac N' Cheese

This type of mac n' cheese came from the city of pasta and cheese, Italy. When it comes to pasta, such as lasagna, spaghetti, pesto, and carbonara, Italy is the great mind behind all those unique and flavorful dishes. Reinvent your mac n' cheese in an Italian way and incorporate it with creamy eggs, five different types of cheeses, and salty pancetta. You will surely have a good mac n' cheese night with this version. 

Typical Weeknight Mac N' Cheese

If cook mac n' cheese more often on weekdays, then add some twists and turns to it by making it different from one night to another! You can always upgrade and make your version of mac n' cheese, such as adding more greens and vegetables to it. You can also put proteins for a healthier option, such as pan-grilled chicken breasts. 

One-Pot Mac N' Cheese

Everyone loves a pot of hot and cheesy mac n' cheese. And who doesn't, right? There is always that type of mac n' cheese that you just want to stay in the pot, as the creamy cheese covers all those elbow macaroni. Simply grab a large spoon and stir mac n' cheese on a stovetop anytime you want! If you are looking for a creamier type of mac n' cheese, this is the best version for you to make. 

Seasonal Mac N' Cheese

Although mac n' cheese is perfect for eating in any day, this type of mac n' cheese is ideal for the winter season. With a hint of comforting and warm melt of cheese, this is the best type of mac n' cheese to prepare when the weather is cold. It also has a hint of sweetness that you will genuinely love. 

Quick and Easy Mac N' Cheese

Whether you are a busy person or you are just tired to go around the kitchen looking for something to cook, mac n' cheese is the best dish to prepare when you want to cook something quick. You can leave the mac n' cheese ingredients in the slow cooker and cook it for about 10 minutes. After that, you will now enjoy a hot bowl of mac n' cheese for dinner; and you didn't even break a sweat!

Restaurant-Class Mac N' Cheese

If you want to be fancier and go high-class, this mac n' cheese recipe is the perfect one for you. Buy some lobsters or perhaps crabs that you can boil and pair with your mac n' cheese. Bring out your best wine and dine with elegance, even when you're at home.
