Take your mac and cheese to the next level with this Shepherd’s Mac! Swap out the potatoes in the traditional Shepherd’s Pie for mac and cheese! Prepare to be obsessed!
We are huge fans of Shepherd’s Pie at our house. But me, trying to always come up with new variations on traditional recipes, I wanted to try a version of the classic meal with macaroni and cheese instead of mashed potatoes. Let me tell you, the carb-for-carb swap is phenomenal!
Mac and cheese was meant to be paired with meat and veggies! It’s finished with a perfect topping of Panko breadcrumbs. Dish up a big spoonful and enjoy!
The homemade cheesy sauce on the noodles makes the flavor factor incredible! I know your family is going to be crazy about this meal! Mine devoured it, even the veggies! Somehow when they’re combined with something so delicious as mac and cheese, you practically don’t notice them!
This, along with Hurry Up Chicken Pot Pie, Hamburger Corn Casserole, and this Chicken Noodle Bake are probably our most favorite hodge-podge meals! Combine a bunch of yummy ingredients and you get a very phenomenal outcome! This is why I love casseroles!
Plus, meals like this feed the masses! I love having leftovers for the next night! I can’t wait for you to try this! It’s so family friendly and delicious!
To make the adult version, simply drizzle it with hot sauce! I love to add a little kick to my portion. 🙂 I’m a total comfort food lover, how about you? Give me all the noodles, cheese and bread! This one combines all of my favorites.
If you’re trying to add more veggies into your meals, this is a perfect way to do so! This comes together without much fuss and then only has to bake for around 15 minutes! It does require dirtying a few dishes, but it’s worth skipping that skillet meal for a night and filling the dishwasher.
This one’s a jaw-dropping meal. Everyone will be all smiles about it. I love the winter months, because they’re all about warm, comfort food like this. Next time you’re in the mood for Shepherd’s Pie, try this Shepherd’s Mac instead! You’ll be so glad you did!
Let me know what you think when you make it! Enjoy!
