- If you like a little spice, add some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the cheese mixture.
- To make this dish more filling, add some cooked and crumbled bacon, diced ham, or cooked ground beef to the mac and cheese before cooking.
- For a crunchy topping, mix some breadcrumbs with melted butter and sprinkle over the top of the mac and cheese before serving.
