Let’s be honest, Mac n Cheese is introduced to children because it’s easy to cook. Call it nostalgia, but we’re still huge fans as adults. The average box of Mac n Cheese can be made with a few simple ingredients that are in your fridge, but maybe you are craving an extra kick of protein after a long day. Solution: chop up a Fatty and sauté until they have a slight crispness to them. If you use the Jalapeno Fatty, which has fresh jalapenos nestled inside, your Mac n Cheese will get a much-deserved kick of flavor. Toss the sautéed Fatty pieces in and you’ve got a great dinner with an extra 12 grams of protein included.
