French Onion Soup Macaroni and Cheese


Macaroni and cheese is a meal we all grew up eating. Whether it was from the blue box, or a mom's best ever baked version. We all love it. Over the years I have made many many versions incorporating any and every cheese I can get my hands on. From time to time I like to switch it up and add some of my favorite adult flavors to make my kid friendly meal more grown up. Like this Buffalo Chicken Mac n' Cheese, or one of my latest favorites, Jalapeno Popper Macaroni. There are so many variations you can try with a meal as versatile as just pasta and cheese sauce. 


Recently I have become obsessed with these French Onion Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, it occurred to me that I could do something similar with my favorite cheesy dish. Why not top a Gruyere macaroni and cheese with some caramelized onions and croutons. It will have all the components of French Onion Soup. 
 

You really really are dying for this recipe huh??????

  7. Ohmahgaw, Carrie, your mac 'n cheese looks divine! So golden 'n crispy on top, and perfectly cheesy on the inside. The first time I tried making mac 'n cheese was about 10 years ago and I used the Joy of Cooking version. It was a complete disaster (owing entirely to my incompetence, not the recipe). The cheese mixture curdled - badly, and I had to toss the whole thing out. Thankfully I've learned to make a good one. I have one tried 'n true mac 'n cheese recipe but I'd love to play around with the flavours. I think your onion soup version will be the first one I try.

  10. We were all set to make your French Onion Mac N Cheese until we stumbled on this recipe.. Not sure if we'll ever stray from this version after enjoying it so much. Do you have any reccomendations on what to serve with it from an entree perspective?

    Thanks!
