Mac and Cheese Toppings

May 15, 2024 by in category Writing

As I’ve shared, I’m currently in the process of creating my second children’s book, Mac and Cheese in Outer Space. My wonderful Illustrator, Winda Mulyasari, is still working her magic to make my cheesy, outer space vision come to life. Please believe me when I tell you that the first illustrations she’s sent me are AMAZING!

While I was writing this book, I challenged myself to try and think of all the different toppings that someone could put on their macaroni and cheese. Like most kids, my children preferred the straight-up noodles and cheese when they were little. Although, I had gotten pretty good at sneaking veggies in there like our dear grandma does in my first book, Mac and Cheese, Please, Please, Please.

Now that my kids are older, their go-to topping is Franks RedHot. Personally, I’m probably more traditional in my appreciation for perfectly seasoned and buttery breadcrumbs.

These are a few of the macaroni and cheese toppings I came up with:

  • Hot sauce
  • Cracked pepper
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Ranch (I’m from the midwest)
  • Buffalo sauce
  • Barbecue sauce
  • Taco meat and/or sauce (does this change the dish too much?)
  • Bacon
  • Chopped up hot dogs
  • Chunked up chicken (especially with aforementioned buffalo sauce)
  • Kielbasa sausage
  • Flamin Hot Cheetos
  • Broccoli
  • Squash
  • Green onion
  • Rotel
  • MORE CHEESE!!!!!!
