And while I shudder at the thought of putting sliced hot dogs in anything now, I've had a lifetime of making different varieties of homemade macaroni and cheese - and this one is one of our favorites! So easy to make that MY little guy can help make it - with just a little bit of help!
And anything that doesn't have to take up oven space or heat up the kitchen on a hot summer day is pretty great too! I used to wonder why so many barbeque restaurants served mac & cheese, but this stuff is golden when served alongside saucy barbeque ribs or brisket!
I bump up the flavor with a healthy sprinkle of barbeque seasoning on top. It sounds weird, but the addition of garlic, onion, smoked paprika and brown sugar just adds the best flavor, and one that no one ever seems to know is even in there. Don't you love secret ingredients?
Hope that your family loves this as much as we do!
