50 Shades of Mac N’ Cheese

9 Mar

mac cheese 3mac cheese 1Sweet Lorraine’s transforms the classic macaroni and cheese dish into an innovative  trendy delight.  Sweet Lorraines Fabulous Mac n’ Cheez is located at the food courts at the Somerset Collection in Troy and at Great Lakes Crossing in Auburn Hills. Start with the classic dish and then pile on the toppings. It’s everything from jalapeno peppers to dried cranberries to olives. Or just go for one of the specialties like Macho Nacho — hamburger, onions, olives, bell peppers, tomatoes, pepper jack and jalapenos. The extreme veggie with broccoli, mushrooms, onions, spinach, bell peppers, tomatoes, Swiss and cheddar is quite tasty.

It’s not your mom’s mac n’ cheese!
