    Frequently Ask Questions

    1. What kind of cheese do beeches use?

    Beeches use Flagship cheese. It is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese with a uniquely robust flavor and nutty undertones. If you have another choice, you can include Gouda, Muenster, Parmesan, fontina, Havarti, and Monterey Jack. Make sure that you remove the rind before mixing it in.

    2. What seasoning is best for mac and cheese? 

    Garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, Italian seasoning, crushed red pepper flakes, hot buffalo sauce, and truffle salt are the best spices to spice up your mac and cheese.

    3. How should my mac and cheese be flavored? 

     Making the best quick mac and cheese requires only a small amount of garlic and onion powder. If you want to enhance the flavor even further, you might also add some paprika, black pepper, or even a little spicy sauce.
