30 Days, 30 Ways with Macaroni and Cheese

Salami, Spinach, and Smoked Gouda Macaroni & Cheese
                   Salami, Spinach, and Smoked Gouda Macaroni and Cheese

You never know where recipe inspiration may come from.

A few Sundays ago as I was trying to think of a new macaroni and cheese recipe, I was stuck. I knew I was going to use Wisconsin Smoked Gouda Cheese, but as for everything else, I just didn’t know. Did I want a Tex-Mex mac ‘n cheese with charred poblanos? Or how about a hog-wild American version with bacon and caramelized onions?

So I did what any good recipe developer would do: I started watching the Packers/Giants playoff game. Green Bay had just fumbled the ball, and the Giants recovered it. And I exclaimed, “That’s it!”
