Imagine your favorite comfort food is now all grown up, and you get a sense of what Andiron’s mac ’n’ cheese is all about. A blend of five kinds of cheese—mozzarella curds, Gouda, Gruyere, Parmesan and white cheddar—up the ante considerably from that yellow powder packet of your childhood. In a further mature twist, the creamy elbow-pasta concoction is finished in a waffle iron, with Parmesan cheese forming a crunchy crust. The accompanying béchamel sauce adds the final touch. A mac ’n’ cheese waffle? This is the stuff childhood dreams are made of.
