Creamy Mac and Cheese Recipe from Savory Spice



If you'd like to add more variety to this dish, stir in sauteed diced red bell pepper or mushrooms, steamed broccoli, or shredded chicken/pork.


Cook elbow macaroni in a large pot of boiling water until desired doneness. Strain and set aside. Heat milk in a separate large pot over medium heat. Make a slurry with mustard powder, cornstarch, and water. When milk is simmering, stir in slurry and blocks of softened cream cheese. Turn up heat to medium-high and cook until cream cheese is melted and mixture is thickened. Take off heat and stir in remaining cheese and Salt & Pepper Tableside. Add in cooked macaroni and Black Dip if using. Stir to coat and serve immediately.

Serving Suggestions

Garnish with chopped chives. If you used one, sprinkle on your choice of spice for a pop of color.

This was a very tasty dish that will be made in my house again. I made the classic on, did not add any of the optional seasoning or the barbecue seasoning. I would recommend NOT changing the cheese types, they all blend nicely and all the spices are great together. I did not have any problems making it and the recipe was easy to follow.
