I want to be very clear about something...if you don't like Panera's mac and cheese, you should stop reading this post immediately and also we can't be friends.
Because Panera, while not always my go-to lunch spot, has some BOMB mac and cheese, and there is no disputing this claim.
But now, as if it was possible to love it more, they now have "Build-Your-Own Mac and Cheese"
What is this "Build-Your-Own Mac and Cheese" voodoo magic?
Basically, you can now TOP YOUR MACARONI AND CHEESE WITH WHATEVER YOU WANT.
Avocado? Yes, you can.
Bacon? You better believe it.
Smoked Pulled Chicken? Don't even think it's crazy...it can TOTALLY happen.
You can also add apple cider vinegar barbecue sauce, cilantro, onions, or pico de gallo on top of your cheesy goodness.
AND NO ONE WILL JUDGE YOU FOR YOUR DECISIONS.
Well, done Panera. Now please kindly take all my money.
