Peppy Mac and Cheese

Tired of serving a regular box of macaroni and cheese to your family

How about you pep it up with this peppy macaroni recipe?

Growing up we would have this at least once a week maybe once every two weeks it was a staple in my household. The other day I said why don’t we have Peppy Mac? Hadn’t had it in years and man did it take me back.

I wanted to share the recipe in case you had not heard of it and would like to try it

Here is what you will need


  • 1 box of macaroni and cheese meal kit(We use Kraft deluxe(in the blue box)
  • I jar of pizza sauce
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 package of pepperoni reserving 12 slices for the top
  • 2 eggs beaten


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease a 9X13 baking dish
  • Prepare box macaroni and cheese according to package directions
  • beat eggs together in a bowl and add to cooled macaroni(if it is too hot you will scramble those eggs, no one wants that)
  • stir in jar of pizza sauce
  • cut up pepperoni (I cut into 4 pieces you could also use mini pepperoni)
  • Stir in pepperoni(remember to reserve some for the top of your dish)
  • pour macaroni and cheese in a 9X13 greased baking dish
  • top with mozzarella cheese
  • top with remaining pepperoni
  • place in preheated oven 350 degree oven
