Hi everyone

I was in chat this morning & the topic meandered to macaroni
What secret ingredient do you add to one of the kings of comfort foods?
I use salsa instead of milk sometimes or roasted garlic instead of butter
Let the tummies getta rumbling

Hello Craig

Diced capsicum for a dash of colour & sweet,
Corn kernals for a bit of crunch,
Diced prosciutto (gotta feed the man meat LOL),

Mac Cheese never tasted better ...
Yum - I feel a song coming on ...

Oh, food,
Wonderful food,
Marvellous food,
Glorious food.

Does "KD" stand for "kosher dairy?" (if so that would nix the prosciutto...)

I have to say Craig, Salsa instead of milk is a particularly intriguing option to me. I would imagine a runny salsa like perhaps Pace Picante sauce might be better than a chunky? What's your take on this?

My only alteration to KD is to add fresh ground pepper. I basically don't eat KD without it. Of course, piling the Ketchup on is important too \:\)

Hands down I prefer the real thing though. Get some nice aged cheddar and generate a white sauce from milk, butter, salt, pepper, seasoned salt, and whatever the spices of the day are... then dump in the grated aged cheddar by the handful and add to cooked whole-wheat noodles. I'm salivating just thinking of it. Think its time I picked up a block of aged cheddar...

Craig,
For me, nothing beats the gourmet 7 cheese mac'n'cheese recipe I saw on Food Network's "Throwdown with Bobby Flay". I've done it several times and it's so good .... you can google for the recipe with the keywords I gave you.
I think the secret is in using aged cheese which makes this comfort food more "grown up", if you will LOL
Too bad I can't have it as often as I wished!
