The Kraft of Gluttony…

Mac ‘n’ Cheese:

Winter is on its way and surely there is nothing more satisfactory than to snuggle up with something warm, soft and greasy?

Ingredients for 3 hungry people:

  • 1 box of Macaroni
  • 1 tin of Evaporated Milk
  • 8oz of Extra Sharp Cheddar, grated.
  • 1 tbspn of butter
  • 1 tbspn of flour
  • ½ a Veggie or Chicken Stock Cube
  • 1 tsp of Dijon mustard
  • Salt and Pepper

Directions:

Start off by making a roux; this is done by melting the butter, adding the flour and cooking for a few minutes. This will need constant attention as it very easy to burn a roux and roux-in it! Now start to slowly add the evaporated milk and whisk till smooth. After the whole can is in the pot (this is not a dish for people are concerned about eating twice their daily calorie intake in one sitting) you can add the cheese, mustard and stock.

Now boil the macaroni, drain and mix in the cheesy sauce. Pout into bowls, devour and then allow your arteries to slowly congest with cheesy goodness. There is no need for salad with this dish, what would be the point? It’s like being one of those obese people that get five cheeseburgers at McDonalds and then get a Diet Coke because they’re watching their figure!!!

Alternative:

Mac ‘n’ Cheese can also be made in the oven with a crispy top. To do this simply follow the above steps (you could maybe cook the pasta for a minute less so that it doesn’t go too soft in the oven) and pour into a greased casserole. You can then rub some butter (at room temp) in with some flour until it resembles breadcrumbs, mix with some fresh parmesan and cover the pasta. Bake at around 400F for 15 minutes or until the top is at the desired crispiness. Personally, I think it just prolongs the time between cooking and eating this delicious indulgence. After all, this is a quick fix, nothing more nothing less…

Reflections:

Mac ‘n’ Cheese is awesome, and that’s all I have to say!
