While most North Americans love a classic boxed macaroni and cheese to satisfy our childhood cravings guilt-free at any given notice, there comes a time where that familiar blue box just doesn't quite cut it. There's really nothing more satisfying than seeing our favorite childhood dishes elevated into the realm of culinary adulthood. This is certainly the case with this brilliant cheese fondue casserole, a playful yet fanciful adaptation of a classic mac and cheese.
With the beautiful and mouth-watering combination of Gruyere, Swiss, and sharp cheddar cheese, this grown-up cheese sauce is aptly cooked down with white wine and chicken stock, giving it an intense burst of flavor not often seen in dishes of such humble origin. When is comes to a date night in with your better-half, or a dinner party with friends and family, this tasty treat is utter perfection!
Pro tip: Smoke up this dish by adding in some cooked bacon and ½ teaspoon of white pepper!
