In my estimation, there is no better comfort food than macaroni and cheese. I especially crave it around this time of year when the weather is turning cold and we’re spending more time indoors. A friend recently hosted a fun Macaroni and Cheese Competition, and my Uptown Mac & Cheese won 2nd place out of ten varieties! The recipe I used was originally from Honey Creek Resort’s Restaurant, Rathbun Lakeshore Grille. Uptown Mac & Cheese is no longer on the menu, but I got a copy of the recipe when I attended a cooking demo during one of our stays there. (BTW, if you haven’t been to Honey Creek Resort State Park, you need to check it out!)
I made a few substitutions (noted below), but this is an up-scale, grown up mac and cheese recipe that’s not too hard to make!
