Is there any food more comforting than a steaming bowl of your mum’s mac and cheese after a long day? We thought not, but after seeing these mouth-watering inventions we might change our minds…

1. In tacos

Evening Times:

If you want to boost the Mexican vibe of your mac and cheese, just add a taco shell.

2. On a hot dog

Evening Times:

Messy to eat but difficult to put down. The most Instagram-able of all mac and cheese options.

3. On a pizza

Evening Times:

Because the only way to make mac and cheese better is to add more carbs.

4. Deep fried

Evening Times:

Forget carrot sticks, deep fried bite sized mac and cheese pieces are the best finger food around.

5. In a burger

Evening Times:

Who needs a lettuce, gherkin and a slice of tomato when you can have a layer of mac and cheese?

6. In waffle form

Evening Times:

No longer will we be topping our waffles with chocolate spread alone.

7. In Cheetos

Evening Times:

This piece of Burger King wizardry means you can go from wanting mac and cheese to eating mac and cheese in a matter of minutes. Time to hit the drive-through. Sadly only available in America.

8. In a burrito

Evening Times:

The perfect solution to eating mac and cheese on the go: The mac and cheese burrito.

9. As a vegan

Evening Times:

Just because you can’t consume dairy, the key ingredient of mac and cheese, doesn’t mean that you should be deprived of its joy.
