A question about a recipe: Martha Stewart's Macaroni and Cheese

092711-food52-88

May I ask what do you serve with Mac and Cheese? I am planning to make this recipe for a dinner get together with another couple and I am stumped as to what goes with mac and cheese. Do you use this as a main dish or a side dish? Thank you for your help.

I have used Mac & Cheese as a side dish to grilled steak (ribeyes!) or lamb chops. Also, add fresh haricot verts on the side, too! Hope this helps.

Mac & Cheese can be either a side or a main dish - works well as a meatless main dish, served with salad or vegetables. However, it can also be a delicious side - e.g., in the south, it's often served alongside ham or fried chicken, etc. (even a Thanksgiving turkey.)

When I make this, all I usually want on the side is a big green salad -- maybe an especially lemony Caesar or a kale salad, but these other suggestions are great too!

This is a really good kale salad: http://www.food52.com/recipes...

When I think of what to serve with Macaroni and Cheese, some kind of chicken (roasted or fried) or baked ham usually comes to mind. I like to serve collard greens as "the other side."

I often serve it as a main with some green vegetables -- either a salad as described above, or some steamed brocolli or green beans -- or with roasted cauliflower. And as ChefJune said and others said, it's a lovely side to roast chicken or ham.
