Disclaimer/side note: If my Grandma finds out I altered her famous macaroni and cheese recipe she will be upset, so don’t tell her. I am not a food blogger/photographer as I am sure you have noticed. My family/husband/children do not  cooperate and often eat the food first. I cheated on my diet. Shhh don’t tell the #nsnation, but this recipe was just tooooo good to pass up. I have the willpower of a puppy in a room full of expensive shoes! (Ha Jimmy Chews LOL)

This is what I started to make with my Armour Pepperoni & Cheese Samples. The kids ate it. I had NO PROBLEM cheating on my diet with boring pizza.Pepperoni Pizza

Then, my husband came home! He wanted Macaroni and Cheese (My grandma’s recipe) and I didn’t have the proper cheese to make it. Thus, Macaroni Pizza and Cheese was born. The Pepperoni already has the cheese in it, so of course it will be great in macaroni and cheese. This is what happens if you do not take the picture in my house immediately after removing from oven!Macaroni and cheese

Another Side note: Armour also makes Nutrisystem friendly turkey pepperoni which I use daily and LOVE!
The next day these can be cut up into Mason size bites:Mason bites



  1. What a fun recipe! My family loves pepperoni pizza and noodles, so this is a great combination. BTW – that’s funny that your family ate this so fast. Mine would too!

  2. I had no idea that Armour made pepperoni that already had cheese in it. We love adding “stuff” into homemade mac and cheese – in the past we’ve done ham, sausage or bacon so I’m not at all surprised that adding cheesy pepperoni into the mix is good as well.
