Boston Market Mac and Cheese

Mac and Cheese is the ultimate comfort food and nothing screams fall and holidays more than comfort food. We’re huge fans of Boston Market here for fast food, the chicken is delicious and we love both the mac and cheese and the creamed spinach.

Mac and Cheese has so many versions it is hard to call anything the Ultimate Mac and Cheese, but this creamy mac and cheese is the perfect Boston Market Macaroni and Cheese copycat.

Can I make this Boston Market Mac and Cheese on the stovetop?

Yes, lower the heat to a simmer and cover the pot. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until creamy and the liquid is reduced.

The creamiest mac and cheese ever! Boston Market Copycat!

Boston Market Bacon Mac and Cheese recipe:

Adding bacon is an awesomely easy way to make the macaroni and cheese. Swap out half the butter for bacon grease from the pan after cooking the bacon. Then once cooked top with 6 crumbled slices of bacon and stir gently.

Can I make this Boston Market Mac and Cheese in my slow cooker?

No, I don’t suggest it, but you can certainly make my Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese and add swap out 1/2 cup of the cheese for blue cheese for a similar Boston Market flavor.

You guys know I am ALL about copycats, tell me what copycat you can’t wait to see on the blog, I would LOVE to oblige! In fact I asked this question a couple of months ago and someone said Wendy’s Chili and I bumped up the posting of it to the next day instead of months later because I’d already made it!

  1. This was tastey although it tasted nothing like Boston Markets mac. I was disappointed especially because it says “copy cat” recipe. But 1-10 for flavor it is a 6 I think but that’s just me so don’t let my opinion knock you from trying it.

  2. I just tried this mac and cheese, but cooked the pasta first. 8 ounces didn’t look like much, so I add all 16 oz of the cooked pasta.

    I assume now, since it’s not mentioned to precook that I should have put it in uncooked…. which way is correct?

    1. This did come out very tasty….. I used 16oz of pasta however. I think it’s pretty close to Boston Market, but I didn’t use Blue Cheese, I used 8oz of Cheddar and 8oz of American. I also used whole milk. 🙂
      Thanks for the recipe!

  3. It’s not a bad mac and cheese, but we love Boston Market Mac and Cheese and we were so pumped to try this. Sorry, but it’s not even close.
