Eat Local: Macaroni and Cheese in Montgomery County

By  | 

Macaroni and cheese, also called “mac and cheese” or “mac n cheese” in the United States and Canadian English, or “macaroni cheese” in the United Kingdom is a dish of English origin, consisting of cooked macaroni pasta and cheese sauce, most commonly cheddar. No matter what you call it, people of all ages are obsessed with it!

Most recognize the Kraft Mac and Cheese blue box, known as “Kraft dinner” in Canada. What we are talking about today is good ol’ homemade not from a box Mac and Cheese. Traditional macaroni and cheese casserole is baked in the oven, where the cheese is usually first incorporated into a Béchamel sauce to create a Mornay sauce, which is then added to the pasta. It can also incorporate other ingredients, such as breadcrumbs on top, meat and vegetables.

The Nick’s Local Eats Facebook group held a month-long poll to find the “northside” fan favorites. The following list of local restaurants features these favorites and highly ranked macaroni and cheese in Montgomery County, Texas.
