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!

i agree original mac n'cheese is something that has earned its place in history lol

the gourmet 7 cheese mac n'cheese uses a LOT of velveeta ... so it's not as yellow as mac n'cheese n'yellow number five (LOL) but it still is yellowish enoughish

lolish

Gawd - this thread reminds me I haven't had mac and cheese for ages. Just goes to show how living in Europe can corrupt you. But I'm back in the USA as of tomorrow, soooooo ..... \:D

Much love,

Jarrad -- it isn't sick

Actually adding a little real cheddar brings KD into a whole different dimension. It doesn't take much cheese to change the flavour quite drastically.

Sorry, I'm not a big KD lover. My kids overdosed me on it when they were little. Love home made Mac and Cheese, right out of the oven.

Jarrad, I learned from my Kent that if I have to ask 'Is that enough?' then it's not enough! More cheese on Mac & Cheese? Yes sir! Pile it on! The stiffer the better, I always say...

I love a good M&C made fairly normally, but with chopped green onions and a spoonful of Pace Picante on top. Yummm! Or with Baked Beans anytime!

When's that Virtual Lunch I read about earlier? I have a few recipies. BTW, I grew up with Paul Prudhomme as my pseudo-Uncle. He and Aunt Kay ran a little resteraunt on the North Shore on weekends, and "K-Paul's" in New Orleans during the week. They would stay at the campground with us almost every weekend. Poor guy loves his own cooking so much he can hardly walk anymore... Now Chef John Folse is all the rage in Cajun Food, but I learned to cook with the likes of Justin Wilson and 'Uncle Paul'... I can still taste his beer-battered fried Crappe! Delicious.

Anybody watch Top Chef?
