It’s pretty simple, who doesn’t love mac and cheese? And further who doesn’t love a good boxed mac and cheese, we all have a place in outr hearts for this pre-made yumminess. And in all honesty, adding a hot dog is not beyond something that I have practiced in our kitchen for a quick meal. Of course I have grown out of that stage onto better brands, like Annie’s Homegrown Organics, and better brands for sausages and hot dogs. I used an all beef Organic no nitrite dog for this recipe. I have to tell you, this meal made me so happy, in a different kind of way. It was quick, and comforting. But that kimchi, whoa. Kimchi and mac and cheese are my new favorite thing. I even text Brian while I was eating this.
So when Annie’s reached out to me to share a quick family recipe using this mac and cheese, I was on board. We all need a quick meal from time to time, and adding vegetables, or good chicken sausages can make this boxed meal, a whole good meal. Kimchi has become a regular part of my diet, so it was kind of a match made in heaven when I put these together.

I’m definitely making your kimchi tomorrow if I have time to run to the store. And I’m probably going to pick up some jarred stuff so I can have it with mac & cheese because this sounds really good right now.

Let’s see….favorite add-in. I guess it would have to be a big ole spoonful of chili. I love a big bowl of chili Mac and cheese.

what a great flavor, super fun Mac and CHEESE you have here!
Thank you, Diane!
Why have I never thought of kimchi in my mac and cheese!? I like sriracha in my mac or mash potatoes!
Whenever I get corn bread and mac and cheese from Boston Market, that combo is pretty good too. Dip it in the meatloaf gravy. Oh man this is making me hungry.!

I love adding spicy to mac and cheese, that’s how this came about!

Tuna and frozen peas!
Oooooooh no way?!!! Yummmm. Good idea!
Kimchi! That is SUCH a good idea. You know I am all about getting as much cabbage into my body as possible. 🙂 Actually I think I might have to pick raw cabbage as my favorite mix-in! It’s such a nice texture contrast. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

Ha! So true, cabbage is so good. I cut the kimchi cabbage pieces larger so they don’t get lost in food we add it to.
Ooh hard to decide…I like to stir in chili to make an even heartier meal, chili Mac n cheese 🙂
Mac & cheese with stir-ins was always my go-to in college, I love that you’ve classed it up here! I was always fond of spicy chicken breast (seasoned with paprika/cayenne/cumin) and broccoli.
This sounds sooo good! Will definitely be trying this with some veggie sausage! When it comes to Mac and cheese I am of the belief if it tastes good with cheese on it throw it in! Typically I do broccoli and cholula. Or just cholula sometimes. Mmm! I’ve done various morning star parties as well and one memorable occasion of oyster crackers. College has been a weird time for me… But quite delicious and enlightening. Well, most of the time anyway.
Cholula is the best in mac and cheese. It’s kind of where I got the spicy kimchi idea!
My favorite stir in is broccoli and cherry tomatoes
I do love broccoli too!
Wow such a unique idea!! love this
Thank you, Rachel!
How super duper fun! You won the giveaway :). I’ll email you!
