My husband LOVES Cracker Barrel’s Macaroni N’ Cheese. Loves it. So much that one time we went, and they were out of it (I know, what???), and he threatened to leave. It is his absolute favorite. When we go, and you get to pick 3 sides, he used to make all 3 sides macaroni n’ cheese, but since he is trying to lose weight, he has cut back to “just two sides of it.”
I have been trying for months to replicate their recipe because, let’s be honest, with infant twins and a 6 year old, we don’t get out to eat much lately. When I finally replicated the recipe my husband was over joyed that he could have his favorite mac n’ cheese dish at home.
I don’t know exactly what it is that makes Cracker Barrel’s Macaroni N’ Cheese so good, but I have to assume it is the type of cheese they use and the fact that they bake it. Either way, it is delicious and my family gobbles it up, and it goes great with a simple chicken breast if you just want to use it as a side. Depending on how the day is going we will eat it by itself as our main meal, or we will have it as the side. My husband prefers it as a side because then there are usually left overs for him to take to work the next day.
You can find our recipe down below. We have found when used as a main dish, it can usually serve 4 people. More if it is a side.
Give it a try and see how you like it. Let me know if you think it compares to Cracker Barrel’s Macaroni N’ Cheese or not.
