Choose the Right Beef: For this Farmhouse Beefy Mac and Cheese, you can use ground beef, diced stewing beef, or even leftover roast beef. Just ensure it's cooked and seasoned to your liking before incorporating it into the dish.
Cheese Selection: We use old sharp cheddar but you can use a combination of cheddar and mozzarella cheese for that perfect melt and flavor, feel free to experiment with other cheese varieties like Gruyère, Monterey Jack, or Swiss for added depth and creaminess.
Seasoning: Don't forget to season your beef and cheese sauce adequately. Salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a pinch of paprika can enhance the flavors. Taste as you go and adjust to your preference.
Pasta Choice: Elbow macaroni is the classic choice for mac and cheese, but you can use other pasta shapes like penne, rigatoni, or rotini for a unique twist.
Serving Suggestions: Farmhouse Beefy Mac and Cheese is a hearty dish on its own, but it pairs wonderfully with a side salad, steamed vegetables, or a slice of garlic bread.
Leftovers: If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
