Gone are the days of you eating macaroni shaped like cartoon characters, but let’s face it: You’ll never be too old for a warm bowl of cheesy noodles. We know this to be fact, considering how quickly Muscle Mac is flying off the shelves these days.
In case you’re getting bored with your usual single serving, here are four flavorful, What’s Good-approved ways to jazz up your microwaveable meal into an Instagram-worthy feast. Everything in moderation, right?
Potato Skin Mac
Bar food and mac-and-cheese? Yes, please. Top your bowl with crumbled bacon, chopped scallions, and a dollop of sour cream. Game-night dinner, done.
Another favorite appetizer turned into your teenage fantasy meal. Mix jalapenos, diced tomatoes, and taco-seasoned ground turkey into your mac-and-cheese. (Swap the jalapenos for banana peppers if you don’t do heat.)
If you’re a believer that everything tastes better with ranch, go ahead and swirl it into your mac. Add diced chicken and bell pepper into the mix for a boost of protein and color.
Give a bowl of mac-and-cheese some Texan vibes by mixing in kidney beans, diced sautéed onion, diced tomatoes, and ground beef. Two comfort foods in one!
