This Jack Daniel’s Mac And Cheese Recipe Is A Boozy, Cheesy Hit Of Deliciousness

Most people wouldn’t ever put Jack Daniel’s and mac and cheese together, but you might be shocked to know that the two combine to create one of the tastiest, most unique dishes you’ll ever make. Not only that but the recipe, created by Blog Chef, is simple enough to follow and doesn’t require too many specialty ingredients. Dinner is served!

  1. No, you’re not just pouring Jack Daniel’s into your mac and cheese. It’s a little more nuanced than that. The recipe calls for bacon to be dipped in the whiskey and then coated in a mixture of brown sugar and cayenne pepper. You also get a bit of Jack Daniel’s in the roux for an added bit of flavor. Sounds delicious.
  2. What should you pick up on your next grocery shop? The mac and cheese ingredients list include bacon, Jack Daniel’s whiskey, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, macaroni, unsalted butter, all-purpose flour, milk, sharp cheddar cheese, provolone cheese, paprika, and salt and pepper. Some of those ingredients you may already have in the house!
  3. It’s quick and easy to make. The whole dish only takes 30 minutes to make from start to finish, which is totally reasonable for a weekend or even a weeknight after a long day at work (or working from home). And, if you have leftovers, you won’t have to cook the next day either. What’s not to love about this whole thing?
  4. It’s a great side dish or main meal. Depending on how hungry you are, Jack Daniel’s mac and cheese is a great party dish for people to have a little bit of or you can have a big old bowl for mealtimes. If you made this for your partner, roommates, family, or friends, imagine how shocked they’ll be when they get that hint of whiskey in the dish. Amazing! For the full recipe, visit Blog Chef here.
