Boston Market Mac and Cheese, made with three cheeses is super creamy and easy to make and the perfect copycat!
Boston Market Mac and Cheese
Mac and Cheese is the ultimate comfort food and nothing screams fall and holidays more than comfort food. We’re huge fans of Boston Market here for fast food, the chicken is delicious and we love both the mac and cheese and the creamed spinach.
Mac and Cheese has so many versions it is hard to call anything the Ultimate Mac and Cheese, but this creamy mac and cheese is the perfect Boston Market Macaroni and Cheese copycat.
Can I make this Boston Market Mac and Cheese on the stovetop?
Yes, lower the heat to a simmer and cover the pot. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until creamy and the liquid is reduced.
Boston Market Bacon Mac and Cheese recipe:
Adding bacon is an awesomely easy way to make the macaroni and cheese. Swap out half the butter for bacon grease from the pan after cooking the bacon. Then once cooked top with 6 crumbled slices of bacon and stir gently.
Can I make this Boston Market Mac and Cheese in my slow cooker?
No, I don’t suggest it, but you can certainly make my Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese and add swap out 1/2 cup of the cheese for blue cheese for a similar Boston Market flavor.

You guys know I am ALL about copycats, tell me what copycat you can’t wait to see on the blog, I would LOVE to oblige! In fact I asked this question a couple of months ago and someone said Wendy’s Chili and I bumped up the posting of it to the next day instead of months later because I’d already made it!
Tools Used in the making of this Boston Market Mac and Cheese Recipe:
Baking Pan: This is great as it looks good for serving too!
Skillet with Lid: I used my All-Clad pan for this recipe but I also own this exact pan which I use for clients and it is great quality at 1/4th the price. I cook for us with All-Clad pans I hope to pass down to my kids (I’m sappy, I know).
Copycat Recipes Book: This recipe was based on a recipe found in this book originally. I adjusted a couple of things but the main ingredients are absolutely found from here 🙂
Rotini Pasta: Semolina is the first ingredient here, feel free to swap for your favorite pasta shape too.
