Kraft Homestyle Mac & Cheese Microwave Bowls // This is cliche to say the least… I love mac & cheese. It truly has been one of those meals that with it's first bite always transports me back to childhood. Last year Kraft introduced the new line of Homestyle Mac & Cheese microwave bowls to the market and last month they just introduced two new flavors… Cheddar Broccoli & Southwest Tortilla.
Kraft sent over several of their Homestyle Mac & Cheese bowls for my family to try and we were pleasantly surprised. I grew up with a Mom who always made homemade mac & cheese, which I loved. But, in my child's mind when she pulled out the little blue box I thought it was something special. Just one of those little treats that Mom kept up here sleeve. Little did I know, it was when she was hurried and didn't have time for a homemade meal that she pulled out that little blue box. I didn't care, I loved it, and it made me feel special when she would make it for me.
Fast forward to today… Our kiddos in this generation are well acquainted with the little blue box, and it's new little brother the little blue microwave bowl. My kiddos don't eat it too often, but It's always there in a pinch and it always makes them happy when I pull it out of the pantry. I have to confess, I've even busted out the little blue microwave bowl on occasion for myself when in the hunt for a quick meal. The funny thing as I've grown-up, I've found myself adding little things here and there to my mac & cheese to bring it up to my adult taste. I don't have to worry about that anymore with the convenient Homestyle Mac & Cheese microwave bowls. The flavors are fun…
Sharp Cheddar, Cheddar Broccoli, White Cheddar, Southwest Tortilla & Hearty Four Cheese
They are super easy & convenient to make, and the portions are hearty.
I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about the portions. When I opened the container and saw the uncooked noodles, I thought I may need to make a sandwich to go along with the mac & cheese. Boy was I wrong! I enjoyed the entire bowl and was stuffed! This would be a perfect pantry item to keep around for your bigger kiddos, take to work to keep in your desk for those days when you just can't make it out to lunch or hide them and save them for yourself!
My Hannah enjoyed kicking back, watching some TV and trying the new Cheddar Broccoli this weekend. It was a hit! What's your favorite go to meal? Is Mac & Cheese one of your guilty pleasures? What's your favorite flavor?
