The best Super Bowl meal is mac and cheese

So filling you’ll forget all about the game.

Soul Food Mac and Cheese

The Super Bowl airs on Sunday, and that means it’s time for a few things: a good game, fun commercials, and most of all, good food to distract you from the fact that either Tom Brady will get yet another ring, or the Philadelphia Eagles will get their first Super Bowl win. Ew.

So, hey, better make that food so delicious that your food coma will prevent you from absorbing the game. There’s a lot of classic you could go with: nacho’s, chicken wings, chili, pizza...even crab dip, apparently. Me, though, I’m going with a less traditional option.

My favorite: a creamy, super cheesy, baked mac and cheese. Carnal Dish has the best recipe for this classic: bechamel sauce, cheese, cheese, cheese, cheese, cheese. Plus seasoning—can’t forget that. I’ve been adding chipotle’s in adobo sauce to the mix, which adds some delicious kick. But the beauty of mac and cheese is that you can add so many different things to it, and it’ll work.

Most of all, though, a good mac and cheese is so filling that you’ll forget about that hideous game on the TV.

What’s your favorite Super Bowl meal?
