During the summer time, one of our favorite (and affordable) date nights that Adam and I have is to go and have dinner at Logan's Roadhouse. Why? Because it's super affordable, and we're kind of obsessed with the two-for-$15 deal! But sometimes, we just don't want to leave the house to eat our favorite thing on the Logan's Roadhouse menu: their macaroni and cheese.
Seriously, if you've never had the macaroni and cheese at Logan's Roadhouse you are really missing out! But luckily, now you can eat some since we've finally nailed our copycat recipe!
This mac and cheese recipe is the comfort food of all comfort foods! It is so creamy, savory and delicious. And a lot goes a long way! So if you have a big family to feed, no worries. This recipe is super filling and totally mouth-watering. Also, this recipe is not necessarily for someone who needs or wants to watch their calories--in fact, if you're that kind of person, you should move on right now. This recipe is all of the cheesy goodness one can handle, so naturally it comes with a lot of carbs and fat.
There! You've been warned. Now, are you ready for the best mac and cheese of your life?
