Baked mac and cheese is taken to the next level when it gets together with spinach and artichoke dip. Can you say cheesey flavor explosion?
There’s two things in life that just seem to make everything better. 1. Mac and Cheese… 2. Spinach Artichoke Dip so…put ’em together and what have you got? Bippidy Boppidy Boo! (that’s a Cinderella reference for those of you who are/were not a Disney child).
Back to the food..I made this recipe for a cookout we went to this past weekend. I kid you not, before we left I had two people ask for the recipe. This stuff is good ya’ll. This is definitely a typical “baked” style mac and cheese. It doesn’t necessarily have that drippy ooey gooey that you get with a stove top its more compact, easily cut, and great for a side at a cookout. (but don’t worry the ooey gooey version is in the works, because why not)
When I was whipping up this recipe, (read destroying my kitchen as the creative juices were flowing) the fellow came into the kitchen and asked why I had soy sauce out on the counter. Soy sauce has an umami flavor, its very deep and unique. It can round out just about any recipe. Recipe missing something? Add soy. It’s basically like putting Windex on it (My Big Fat Greek Wedding…come on, you knew that one right?) it’s a total cure all. Because of this, I’ll tell you exactly what I told him. Trust me. Put the soy sauce in.
