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.



cups (1 L) elbow macaroni
cup (250 mL) milk
- ¾ package old Cheddar cheese
1 ¼
cups Buffalo wing sauce, divided
cups (500 mL) shredded Salerno peperonato cheese

Step 3

Meanwhile, in a medium stockpot over medium-high heat, scald milk. Remove from heat.

Step 4

Add cheddar cheese to hot milk, stirring until melted. Stir in 1 cup (250 mL) Buffalo wing sauce.

Step 5

Pour cheese sauce into the bottom of 13- x 9-inch (3 L) casserole dish.

Step 6

Fill casserole dish with alternating layers of macaroni, peperonato cheese and chicken, finishing with layer of cheese.

Step 7
