Local Feed's Mac n Cheese

In a world gone topsy-turvy, comfort food rises to the top of the menu for calming nerves and nourishing the soul. Local Feed’s Chef Justin Thompson has the recipe for the most comfortingest of comfort foods – Famous Mac ’n Cheese – for you to try at home.

Is there anything melted cheese doesn’t make just a little bit better?

Local Feed Mac




1 lb. dry pasta (shells, macaroni, etc.)
3 cup heavy cream
15 slices of American cheese

6 oz smoked Gouda, grated
1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs 
Salt and pepper to taste


Boil and strain pasta. Bring heavy cream to a simmer. Season to taste. Add American cheese slice by slice, followed by smoked Gouda, stirring slowly. Season to taste. Fold in pasta and place in your favorite casserole dish or cast iron. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top and bake at 425 degrees until golden brown.

Tip: If cheese sauce is a little thick, rinse out the cream container with 1/2 cup of water, then add a tablespoon of it at a time until desired thickness.

Local Feed is one of the dozens and dozens of Georgetown restaurants offering carry-out and pick-up only until further notice. (See the full list here.) So you can still enjoy this seasonal kitchen’s steaks, sides, salads and suppers. Find the menu here to order dinner for one, entrées for two, family meals for four and more.
When you pick up your dinner, you’ll notice the restaurant is located right across the street from Royal Spring Park, the very place Rev. Elijah Craig discovered bourbon in 1789. Local Feed is tucked into an 1890’s icehouse for some historic ambience you’ll want to enjoy once restaurants may safely open up again for dine-in service. Until then, grab and go home to savor the chef’s butter bean soup, farmer’s salad, fried catfish po’ boy, chicken ’n dumplings and yes, the Famous Mac ’n Cheese and more.
Local Feed is offering a regular supper menu, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday. Some additional items available include house-made bread loaves, deli-sliced house smoked ham, pounds of house-smoked brisket, bacon and pork and family-sized meals that change daily. NOTE: Items vary daily based on availability. Order online at www.localfeedky.com. Delivery is free within five miles.
