Put an adult spin on your next batch of mac and cheese! Instant Pot Guinness Mac and Cheese is going to be a home run at your St Patrick’s Day celebration!
So, after doing the test run for Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage the other day, it really put me in the mood for St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t know why, but I just can’t seem to put all of the leprechaun jokes and green colored foods out of my mind! There is just something about the whole holiday that makes me happy. I mean who doesn’t love GREEN BEER!
If you are not the biggest Corned Beef and Cabbage fan, you can still get into the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day with Instant Pot Guinness Mac and Cheese. The combination of Guinness, a ton of Irish cheddar, and a touch of dijon mustard (to cut the richness) make this dish a complete home run.
Cooking with Guinness gives sweet and savory dishes like this such a delicious depth of flavor! It is truly unlike anything you have ever tasted before. It’s ultra flavorful and super creamy with out going as far as over doing it. It’s crazy how well these flavors just go together. This is literally my new favorite mac and cheese!
And, the absolute best part about this whole recipe, it can all be done in the Instant Pot in 4 minutes! I mean how much easier can it get! I can tell you one thing for sure, this is going to be making a appearance on my dinner table for more than just St. Patrick’s Day!
