Any ideas on how to jazz up boxed macaroni and cheese?

MyWay: Browned ground beef, can of peas and a can of cream of mushroom soup! Always a hit in my house! One of my griwn kids favorite cimfort foods to this day. You do not tate the mushroom soup. Mixed together with mac and cheese changes the flavor. I got this recipe somewhere about 35 years ago.
Parmesan cheese, pepper, garlic. Or add cut up sausage. Everything tastes better cooked in a Dutch oven so make the Mac then bake in a Dutch oven or any pan with foil and with some herbs. Beautiful salad on the side made with grapes, apples, lettuce and things you love.Marie
Oooh sorry but mines the best. Make the Mac and cheese per usual, add shredded cooked chicken, diced fresh tomatoes and chopped green onions. Stir together, the best fr.Laura
Ham bits (I always have ham leftover so I chop it up and put it in the freezer and take it out as needed), sautéed garlic, and charred frozen broccoli. Absolutely delicious.Jade
I make taco Mack by adding some salsa, taco seasoning and ground beef.Christina
Tuna and peas.Shannon
This is my specialty! I’ve been poor several times in life and can soup up some mac n cheese! Lol, I lived on it college! Pesto sauce…just stir it in, add in sun dried tomatoes, add in pepperjack or other types of cheese and some milk and extra peppers if desired, put the prepared mac n cheese in the waffle maker and make mac n cheese waffles, add hot sauce, add small amount of mustard, add sezschuan sauce, add pickled peppers and pepper juice, add a pack of chick fil a schiracha sauce or any pepper jelly and stir, add in lays potato chips crushed up, add garlic and I mean lots of fresh garlic diced finely and lemon juice, add pepperoni pieces and canned green chiles, the best of all…is add sliced sautéed hot dogs or sausage dogs very browned..pieces of browned bacon will suffice nicely too…this was my childhood staple crop.Molly
I love boxed Mac & cheese 😊 If you want to add to it though, add peas, broccoli, asparagus and even top with bread crumbs. You can add in extra cheese too if you have any and just let it melt.
There’s a nice restaurant here in Los Angeles that sells mac & cheese that way and if sells for $17.Molly
Saute a bunch of veggies up (i recently used red bell, onion, green bean, broccoli, and mushrooms) and add some left over chicken. And add a little extra splash of milk to make the cheese extra creamy so it coats all the veggies and chicken too. Season as you please.Jodi
Chicken and broccoli, then top it with buttered bread crumbs and cheddar cheese, bake 350 for 30 minute’s, or until brown and bubbly. You can do this fried, drained hamburger and bacon too…so many variations. I like to add onion, and garlic powder to mine, just to add a different flavor. Also great with parmesan cheese on top with the cheddar.
