When staffing is tight and service scenarios are unknown, recipes using bulk items can often be overlooked for individually
-wrapped products. However, bulk products like Land O Lakes® shelf stable cheese sauces, macaroni and cheese and other bulk items can be used in simple, speed-scratch recipes that will keep your menu fresh and fun. By keeping the ingredients and recipe steps to a minimum, these recipes will please both staff and students.
By using these bulk sauces in recipe applications, they are easy to assemble, portion and store for service, both hot and cold at school or at home.
By adding 1-2 additional ingredients, these Mac and Cheese recipes are easy to assemble and can be pre-portioned in desired to-go containers with lids that will hold well for service or transport.
Fun Fact: This All American Cheeseburger Mac and Cheese recipe was selected as the overall favorite out of 30 recipes tasted by K-12 students at a recipe evaluation event!
These recipes can be prepped cold and heated later at home or at school, if desired. Wrap in foil after prepping for easy storage selection and the ability to heat quickly in the oven.
