Having a rustic outdoor vintage wedding with a bbq. Have always planned on having mac and cheese but thought might add more fun by having a mac and cheese bar. Ideas for toppings and also a creative way to serve. Martinis too formal for our wedding. Having mason jars for our drinks

Topping ideas could be bacon bits, ham, broccoli, maybe tomatoes, cheese, cracker/bread crumbs, etc. I’m not sure of a creative way to serve it though.

my FI’s mom is a caterer and she was talking about one that they did one time last week when we were talking about ideas. they used martini glasses though and had things like truffles, (real crushed) bacon bits, herbs, green onions, different cheeses for on top… i can’t remember what else. i’d love to do it but i think i’m the only mac n cheese fanatic so it’d just be self indulgent 😛 you could get those disposible bamboo bowls on amazon or i saw some disposible birch ones the other day too to keep with the rustic theme

What about serving in a shot glass type glass? Though it might be too small…I really love mac and cheese.

Agree with above toppings. Some people (not me) likes ketchup on mac and cheese too.
As for serving, crocks like those used for french onion soup would be great. Not sure if those are rentable and would probably be pricey to buy.
Might be too casual, but maybe to-go containers (the bottom portion) or take out containers (like the chinese kind)

a great topping for mac and cheese is thinly sliced and caramelized shallots (or sweet onions). Super good on top of mac and cheese!!!!!!!!!!
What about serving in individual sized ramekins?

Don’t forget the hot sauce! I love putting Tabasco or Frank’s Red Hot on my mac and cheese. Your wedding sounds like it’s going to be awesome!

First, I’m probably going to have to crash th wedding because mac & cheese is my kryptonite. I will stuff myself with it until there is no more available.
I would offer bread crumbs, bacon, cheese, bacon, more bacon, maybe some ham sliced small, you could offer chicken to mix in…OK, that’s just me being hungry, more cheese (a variety – american, colby, montery jack), maybe some herbs, sea salt, pepper (you can get the cracked kind with different pepper flavors), you could even serve little bread slices. OK, I will start coming up with weird combos if I don’t stop because this all sounds awesome.
As for serving it, you could get glasses people drink scotch/bourbon out of, are little ramekins, or soufflee dishes. margarita glasses even. Margaritas sounds good with the bbq theme!
