Macaroni and Cheese Dinner Board

Serving a “cozy” Macaroni and Cheese dinner on a booard is easy! Above I made this dinner on a 24-inch board (not available anymore), but GREAT NEWS! I now have my boards for sale (3 epic sizes), that are food safe, and made in the USA!

You may have also tried my Caprese Chicken Casserole recipe (that would be fun served on a “board”) or my Chili Dinner Board Recipe.

HOW TO MAKE Macaroni and Cheese Dinner Board

Serve your favorite mac and cheese recipe, or if you’re in a pinch for time, buy at the local market. This is what I love about dinner boards. The options are plentiful, and you can always take shortcuts.

And so many of you have asked about the pan that fits perfectly on this board!

LeCreuset 5-quart stainless steel braiser

Guys, I’m using my favorite 5-quart Stainless Steel Braiser that is lightweight and fits beautifully on these big boards. It’s shallow enough to not overpower the board. It comes with a lid, so you can serve the food hot (place a pothoolder down first). You can buy this LeCreuset 5-quart Stainless Steel Braiser [affiliate link] and I think you’ll love it!

Friends, I love this [Amazon affiliate link] Le Creuset Stainless Steel 5 quart Braiser for dinner boards because it’s “light in weight” and isn’t too heavy for the board.

BEST Macaroni and Cheese Dinner Board

First of all, I started my blog 14 years ago for reluctant entertainers. If you follow my The Big Board or dinner board ideas, you may wonder if I am actually reluctant. HA! No! But I’ve had family members who are, and I wanted to share more about hospitality, including ideas for opening our homes.

I’ve never been reluctant, but I want to help those who are!
