What do you serve with homemade mac and cheese??

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am in a rut and cant figure out what main dishes and side dishes to do together.
For instance, I want to try and new mac and cheese recipe but I dont know what to serve with it. Although mac and cheese is filling, my gang will be wanting to know where the meat is?? So I am looking for ideas other than what I have come up with to serve with it.

pork chops
fried chicken or chicken strips
salisbury or chicken fried steak

TIA for any ideas!!

I normally do Ham or polsakilbasa for a meat and steamed green beans as veggies, this way you get color and texture.

If doing for lunch then maybe hotdogs or bratts with tomato wedges

I really serve it with any meat/fish...I just use it as a starch side dish as I would any potato/rice/pasta side.

That's what I do as well.

Before you say gross... I grew up very poor and tuna was pretty cheap. When we had mac n cheese as a kid my mom would open a can of tuna put some on top, add peas to the top and chopped onion.

As an adult I sometimes still do this but I have m&c with tuna, pickles and onions.

Strange yes, but good.

We just had homemade mac & cheese last night with baked scallops and garlic string beans.

That's basically how I make tuna casserole, except I mix the tuna in with the mac and cheese instead of outting it on top. I add some frozen mixed veggies, onion, and a little cayenne, and top with bread crumbs. Easy, cheap, and quick.

Mac & cheese goes with anything

But I like it with meatloaf or chicken.

when i make homemade mac and cheese i cut up leftover cubed ham and toss it in and steam broccoli and cut it up and toss it in too ( once the mac has been cooked of course).

there is NEVER leftovers when i do that.

I like to serve it with meatloaf, meatballs, fried chicken tenders, fish, and chicken fried steak. But it is good with anything really!
