Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

I’ve been craving comfort food lately…namely Mac & Cheese. Maxie’s Southern Comfort in Milwaukee makes a killer White Cheddar Mac and Cheese that B and I indulged in during happy hour last Friday (On a side note – Maxie’s happy hour is amazing. Half price oysters, shrimp and fried green tomatoes PLUS complimentary corn bread. How’s that for a deal, y’all).

I first tried their Mac and Cheese last month during my friend and fellow blogger Sun’s birthday. I’m the worst order-er ever. I always have about five things on my mind and then just end up picking something random at the last minute. And in this case, I just copied Sun and I was so glad I did (cause I’ve been dreaming about that Mac ever since).

Still, my craving hasn’t been satisfied…until tonight.

I had a butternut squash sitting on my counter and after a post on a vegan version from Oh She Glows, I decided to make a mac and cheese in all its diary glory (this is Wisconsin after all). And as far as Mac’s go, this version is actually pretty healthy. There isn’t any half and half or whipping cream, there isn’t a ton of cheese and the butternut squash sneaks in a healthy dose of vegetables. In other words, this is one Mac and Cheese you can definitely feel good about indulging in.



Question: What is your favorite comfort food?
