Some of my fondest food memories are at the Cheesecake Factory. I know many folks don’t like to eat there because of the long wait and huge menu. But I guess that is what I love about it. Waiting an hour to choose from a million things…love it. A secret of the Cheesecake Factory Menu is the Macaroni and Cheese under their side dishes. This stuff is delicious. Warm and gooey, the perfect ratio of creamy cheese and pasta. Topped with breadcrumbs and more cheese for a little textured layer on top. The side dish is large enough for an entree serving but great reheated for leftovers too.
I love cooking and eating macaroni and cheese. There is something about whisking up a roux that makes you feel like a chef! I have tried to replicate this restaurant recipe, check it out after the jump.
