Amazing Beer Mac and Cheese! A Mac and Cheese Recipe so simple, yet so complex in flavor, you won't believe your tastebuds. A 5 ingredient wonder will. Inspired by Cheddar beer soup, beer and bacon give this creamy macaroni and cheese its unique flavor. Creamy with a hint of beer, this cheesy mac is one of our favorites for a big family dinner. —Lauren Petersen, Marysville, Washington.
