This Farmers Sausage Macaroni and Cheese is something I came up last weekend. I was craving some good old comfort food and in Canada that typically means Mac and Cheese.
So I merged my favorite sausage with a box of just that! Yes, I said it a box of macaroni and cheese.
Now I don’t typically share recipes where I use boxed macaroni and cheese.
However for this recipe I wanted too create something for those who still love macaroni and cheese but want something more special.
Also added half a cup of shredded cheddar cheese to make it more cheesy.
The kids will definitely like this recipe too!
However if you want you can always cook some macaroni on the side and add 2 cups of cheddar instead.
