My Buffalo Chicken Mac ’n’ Cheese is a flavourful twist on a classic recipe. I took my mom’s delicious macaroni and cheese recipe and ran with it to create a true taste sensation. This recipe combines all the comfort of mac ’n’ cheese with the addictive flavour of Buffalo chicken wings.
I didn’t just add a little heat – I also included the blue cheese that I love so much when paired with my wings. It really helps to tame the heat and adds another dimension of flavour.
Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC).
Cook macaroni according to package instructions.
Meanwhile, in a medium stockpot over medium-high heat, scald milk. Remove from heat.
Add cheddar cheese to hot milk, stirring until melted. Stir in 1 cup (250 mL) Buffalo wing sauce.
Pour cheese sauce into the bottom of 13- x 9-inch (3 L) casserole dish.
Fill casserole dish with alternating layers of macaroni, peperonato cheese and chicken, finishing with layer of cheese.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until cheese topping is lightly browned.
Remove from oven; top with reserved Buffalo wing sauce and blue cheese. Return to oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until sauce is bubbling and cheese is slightly melted.
