Smokin’ & Grillin’ wit AB really crushed it with this seafood mac and cheese recipe. It is so easy to make and delicious. Lately, I have been trying out lots of mac and cheese recipes from mac and cheese pizza to crockpot mac and cheese. When I stumbled on this amazing video I knew I just had to try it. It is best to use block cheese so you don’t get a film from shredded cheese.
