Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board Launches New Mac and Cheese Site

Jan 20, 2014
In celebration of National Cheese Lover's Day, the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board has launched a new website dedicated to All Things Mac and Cheese.

All Things Mac and Cheese includes more than 100 recipes that range from simple stovetop variations to creative gourmet options. Home cooks can find recipes for a wide range of any add-in ingredient they have on hand, whether it's seasonal vegetables, sausage, bacon or seafood. The eclectic collection includes recipes such as Crab & Asiago Mac and Cheese; Monte Cristo Mac and Cheese Nuggets; and Raclette Mac and Cheese.

A tips section offers information for mastering the art of mac and cheese with preparation and cooking advice. "Home cooks are passionate about their mac and cheese, and the possibilities are endless," said Heather Porter Engwall, director of National Product Communications, Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board. "It's a wonderful way to showcase the many varieties of Wisconsin Cheese, and we are excited to share this collection of recipes with mac and cheese enthusiasts everywhere."

New recipes will be added to the site every month. January's featured collection is "Wisconsin Style" –recipes created by Wisconsin food bloggers and home cooks, including Creamy Four Cheese Mac with Bacon. The recipe, created by Jean Kriesel, was a finalist at the Milwaukee Mac and Cheeze Takedown last October. "I can't tell you how many times I have shared this recipe since then," Kriesel said. "I was even asked to make it for Christmas dinner. It's making the rounds, and that makes me happy because it really celebrates the use of dairy products."
