Clara’s third birthday is quickly approaching, so I’ve been brainstorming ideas for her birthday party. She asked for “a party with my babies and I wear a dress.” I love thinking about her party this time of year because, really, there’s not a lot going on in January. However, I know some of you are getting excited about another party coming up in a few days – a Super Bowl party. For me, it’s just any other Sunday, but I know many of you will be celebrating. No matter what type of party you’re dreaming up right now, this recipe is a great one to add to your list of potential ones to make. It’s a contender for Clara’s birthday party (currently tied with my other party favorite, ham and cheese hand pies), and I think it would be great as part of any party spread.
For the most part, I think it’s true to say that most people like mac and cheese. I am a big fan of it myself, which should come as no surprise given the numerous recipes for it I’ve got on the site. This one is what I’m dubbing party mac and cheese because it is the perfect individual serving size for just about any gathering. These aren’t just cute, either. They’re filled with herby Boursin, smoky gouda and sharp cheddar. There’s a crisp, buttery crust to go with the creamy cheese. This recipe is just an all-around winner.
