Decadent Holiday 'Mac and Cheese' Recipe Is a True Work of Art

If you love mac & cheese, you’ve got to check out this recipe. This is not your typical Velveeta mac & cheese, this upgraded version looks exceptional. TikTok and content creator @spicednicegui  shares her outstanding recipe with us, and we can’t stop thinking about it.

This decedent dish will be the hit of the holidays!

This side dish looks absolutely perfect! She teaches us how to make a sensational rue and a well-seasoned sauce. This beautiful mac & cheese uses five freshly shredded cheeses. She tells us they must be freshly shredded. Pre-shredded cheeses contain anti-caking agents. The anti-caking agents will cause the sauce to separate. You can’t get a beautiful creamy sauce like this with pre-shredded cheese. Her cheese selection is also divine. 

She uses Colby Jack, medium cheddar, sharp cheddar, white cheddar, and mozzarella. She adds the freshly shredded cheese one cup at a time. Once all has been added and blended, she adds cream cheese and seasonings. We're dying to try this. Pour this heavenly creation into a casserole dish and top with three more cups of freshly shredded cheese. Oh, have mercy on our arteries! It comes out of the oven looking more delicious than we could even dream of.

The audience loved this recipe, and viewer @AshlyBeebe commented, “I made this exact recipe last Thanksgiving, and everyone said it was the best they had ever had.” It sure looks like the best we’ve seen. Viewer @GailC. suggested, “Try putting some panko breadcrumbs on top of the cheese. Gives it a yummy little crunch.” We're into that idea too!

We know one thing for sure: this sinful side dish will be on our holiday tables this year.
