FROM THE MENU EXTRA: Mac and cheese from metro Atlanta restaurants

Atlanta restaurants use a variety of ingredients — from truffle oil to hot sauce — to make macaroni and cheese taste special. In this special From the Menu Extra, we bring you a multitude of recipes for cheesy goodness.

Since 1999, we’ve been tracking down recipes for your favorite dishes from metro Atlanta’s restaurants. Fresh ones are published each week in Thursday’s Food section, but with so much bounty in our vaults, we’ve decided to dip into the archive and bring you some of the best of “From the menu of” in a digital-only special section for AJC subscribers. We hope you enjoy this monthly special section.

And if there’s a recipe you’d like to see in our weekly Food section feature, email us at fromthemenu@gmail.com and put “From the menu of” and the name of the restaurant in the subject line.
