smoked gruyere and pumpkin mac n cheese

Looking for the ultimate side dish for Thanksgiving?! Look no more! This smoked gruyere and  pumpkin mac n cheese is just what the doctor ordered. It’s smoky, savory, slightly sweet in just the right way, and utterly addicting. It is truly a next level mac n cheese dish that’s not only impressive AF but it also pairs perfectly with all the other Thanksgiving fixins!

You can find me bathing in this rich, luscious mac n cheese because hey, it is THAT GOOD! And if you’re not into pumpkin but you still want it to shine with autumnal glory, swap it out for some roasted butternut squash or candied sweet potato bits. I recommend using this recipe as your blank canvas so get creative with it! You want a bacon crust? DO IT! You want to add some honey baked ham to the recipe? DO IT! Oh, and if you do, please share it with me! I love watching you guys have fun and get creative with my recipes! THAT IS WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT! Continue reading
