Mac and Cheese is everyone's favourite comfort food. There's something about that creamy, cheesy, carb goodness that's a hit for most of us from childhood onwards.

Perhaps that's why as adults and try so hard to create variations that fit with our chosen way of eating - it evokes warm memories of childhood and somebody cooking something special just for us.

Well we have it all in this roundup - from classic baked mac and cheese to quick and easy skillet versions.

There are multiple vegan versions, gluten-free and dairy-free mac and cheeses and an allergy friendly mac and cheese.

Looking for ways to get a few more veggies into meals - look no further - we have those variations too.

And of course we have some truly decadent adult versions that take it to a new level with ingredients like truffles, lobster and specialty cheeses.
