Panera’s macaroni and cheese is one of the best food inventions. It’s thick and creamy. Melty and a strong Vermont Cheddar flavor. In short, it’s worth every calorie.
I’m in search of the perfect copycat recipe.
Here is attempt one:
- American White Cheese
- Extra Sharp Vermont Cheddar Cheese
- Dijon Mustard
- Hot Sauce
This recipe turned out to be a similar thickness and creamy-ness as the Panera version, unfortunately the dijon mustard over-powered the whole dish. The pasta was still delicious and I certainly consumed my fair share of it, it was not however the Panera version.
On to the next copycat recipe I can find.
