OMG Mac and Cheese


I served this Mac and Cheese with the skirt steak from yesterday's post. The recipe came from a restaurant that we loved in Birmingham, Prairie Fire Grill. It went out of business a long time ago, without warning. I was so glad that they had a newsletter where they shared some of their recipes. I needed to keep this Mac and Cheese in my life!

This is very simple and packs a ton of great flavor. It is super rich and creamy. The secret ingredient in this mac and cheese is Boursin cheese. It really takes this from good to OMG delicious! This takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish and even less time to devour it!



OMG Mac and Cheese
serves 8-10
(Printable Recipe)

  • 16 oz elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
  • 2 (5.2oz) cubes of Boursin cream cheese 
  • 3 cups heavy cream 
  • 1 (8oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar Jack cheese
  • salt
  • pepper
Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch pan. Set aside

In a large saucepan, heat cream, Boursin and cream cheese until melted over medium-low heat.  Stir in salt and pepper to taste.  Mix in cooked pasta, coating well.  Pour mixture into prepared 9x13-inch pan.  Top with cheddar jack cheese.  Bake at 10-15 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.

  5. Believe it or not, I am a cheese lover but I have never heard of this cheese! Is it usually found at most grocery stores?

  7. This cheese comes in different flavors. What did you use ? Wow...I usually disregard comments about too much 'fat' on all fat laden goodies, but this has even me wondering the wisdom !

    Thanks,

  10. Sherry - I find the Boursin cheese in the deli cheese section - not behind the counter - in the "fancy" cheese case.

  11. I'm going to try this with fat free half and half and 2% cheeses and see how it turns out. Can't justify all the fat and calories even though it really looks yummy. I'll let you know how it turns out

  13. Oh my heavens this looks awesome. What is Boursin cream cheese? I've never heard of this ingredient.

  14. If any of you have a Trader Joe's near you, they sell Boursin for about half the price of the regular grocery stores. Costco also sells three-packs of Boursin; two garlic herb and one shallot something (which is DEE-LISH).

  15. Darby - Boursin is a French herb cream cheese. I used the garlic herb flavor. It is found in the deli cheese section - in the gourmet cheese case.

  18. Well, I just made this for a special lunch,topped it with buttered cornflake crumbs, a sprig of chive from garden, and served with a platter of fresh sliced cukes and tomatoes, and it was a hit !

    I will put this in my "keeper" or "make again" file. Thanks.

  21. Made this today but it was a little too much cream cheese for me. Has a great flavor though & will definitely use this again & tweak it to my liking.

  22. My little grocery store were out of the Garlic & Herb Boursin, so I bought the Shallot & Chive flavor. I'm making this to take along with my desserts to a Thanksgiving potluck today. Can't wait to try it! : )
