Keep it Simple: Mac n’ Cheese.

March 4, 2012

Here’s something a little different. Personally, I love to cook at home – unlike our happy-hour queen, Amy Tsang – because I believe it’s fun and the food just tastes so much better! Now, everyone loves Mac n’ Cheese, but the Mac n’ Cheese from a box thing can get pretty old…UNLESS, you learn how to vamp things up a bit like I did through this video!

Alton Brown is a famous Food Network TV chef who explores the origins of ingredients, decodes culinary customs and presents food and equipement trends. You don’t need to worry about loving to cook but not having all the fancy ingredients, because his recipes all have very general ingredients! In this video, he includes simple preparation and unconventional discussions to bring you food in its finest and funniest form!

Alton’s quick and easy stove top Mac n’ Cheese makes about 6 to 8 servings, and is so easy to make that little kids can do it themselves! To make it easier for you, I listed the ingredients and instructions below just in case the video was going too fast. But hey, you can always rewind and rewind some more until you make the perfect yummy-tasting Mac n’ Cheese!

Ingredients:
– 1/2 pound elbow macaroni
– 4 tablespoon butter
– 2 eggs
– 6 ounces evaporated milk
– 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
– 1 teaspoon kosher salt
– fresh black pepper
– 3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
– 10 ounces sharp cheddar, shredded

Directions:
1. In a large pot of boiling water, add salt and cook the elbow macaroni then drain it.
2. Melt in the butter and toss to make it well coated
3. Whisk together the egg, milk, hot sauce, salt, pepper, and mustard.
4. Stir into the cooked macaroni and add the cheese.
5. Stir for about 3 more minutes on low heat, or until it looks creamy.
6. Serve and chow down!
