I wish that I could just hand you a fork through the screen and let you taste this Mushroom and Truffle Sea Salt White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese! It literally makes my taste buds so happy that I have the hardest time describing the taste. It’s a rich, sharp and flavorful Macaroni and Cheese that will have you going back for “just one more bite” over and over again!
This mac and cheese is a slight adaption from the Black Truffle White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese that I started making a year or so ago after a trip to Disney! You see, a guy that was working The Spice & Tea Exchange section of “Mickey’s Pantry” in downtown Disney told me about this awesome sea salt called “Black Truffle Sea Salt”. He told me about a white cheddar mac and cheese that he had made before and I scooped up a few little bags of the sea salt right then and there! Oh the smell of the Black Truffle sea salt was intoxicating. I loved it.
Well I ran out of the beloved sea salt a while back and found a jar of Sabatino Truffle Sea Salt that had the same wonderful smell! I was in love all over again!

Back to the Mushroom and Truffle Sea Salt White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese!! I normally just make this with the Sea Salt and white cheddar, but I love to experiment with mac and cheese combinations. So I chopped up a few mushrooms and cooked them with a little of the sea salt before adding them into the mac and cheese! Next time I’m thinking about adding chicken and just making this into a complete meal!
I found this bottle of Sabatino Truffle Sea Salt at Whole Foods but I’ve also seen it at Whole Market, Marshalls and TJ MAXX!
Macaroni and Cheese
16 oz sharp white cheddar cheese, grated
1 pint heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon Truffle Sea Salt
Drain the pasta and set aside.
In a sauce pan, heat a tablespoon or two on medium heat. Add mushrooms. Halfway through cooking the mushrooms add 1/4 teaspoon Truffle Sea Salt and stir. Cook mushrooms until done.
In a saucepan, heat heavy cream over medium heat until hot. Right before it starts to boil, add grated cheese and stir to melt. Turn the heat down to low and stir cheese until completely melted.
Add 1/4 teaspoon Truffle Sea Salt. Stir and taste. Add another 1/4 teaspoon Truffle Sea Salt if you desire a stronger taste. I use 1/2 teaspoon Truffle Sea Salt but the sea salt is STRONG so just season to taste.
Next, mix in the pasta and the mushroom. Stir well! Serve immediately.
To reheat: Add a splash or two of milk before reheating. Macaroni and Cheese will thickening A LOT when chilled.
