Re: Mac and cheese recipe needed

This is the recipe we like. 

 

Best Mac n' Cheese I have ate is Dadgum That's Good Smoker recipe. You can also make it in the oven. It's really yummy.

 

Four-Cheese Smoked Mac n’ Cheese

Ingredients:

1 (16 ounce) package elbow macaroni

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup all purpose flour

3 cups milk

1 (8 ounces) cream cheese, cut into large chunks

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 cups extra sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded

2 cups Gouda cheese shredded

1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded

Directions

1. Load the wood tray with one small handful of wood chips and preheat the smoker to 225° F.

2. Cook pasta according to package instructions. In a medium saucepan, melt butter, and whisk flour into the butter. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes, until sauce is bubbly and thick. Whisk in milk and bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes until thickened. Stir in cream cheese until mixture is smooth. Add salt and pepper.

3. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup Cheddar, 1 cup Gouda cheese, Parmesan cheese, pasta, and cream sauce. Spoon mixture into an 11 by 9 ½-inch aluminum roasting pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle top with remaining Cheddar cheese and Gouda cheese.

4. Place in smoker and cook 1 hour at 225° F, until brown, bubbly and delicious.

@Nightowlz  This definitely looks like a recipe I would be interested in.  You said it could be made in the oven.  At what temperature and for how long would you suggest.  Also, since it wouldn't be going into a smoker, would you suggest maybe a smoked cheese in the recipe?

@lucky-girl 

 

Are you looking for a 'saucy' mac and cheese or not saucy?

 

I was born and raised in Savannah, GA and we don't make 'saucy' mac and cheese, it's more solid.

 

I can post my recipe if you're not looking for saucy mac & cheese., it's very similar to Paula Deen's recipe, a friend and neighbor of mine.

I cooked it in the oven same temp/time as on the smoker.

Guess you could use a smoked cheese to give it more of a smoked flavor. Smoked Gouda would probably be good.

Re: Mac and cheese recipe needed

I make mine in a saucepan on the stovetop:

 

1 lb elbow macaroni

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp salt

2 cups warm milk

1/2 lb shredded cheddar cheese

 

Cook macaroni.  

Melt butter in saucepan.  Stir in flour over medium heat and cook to a roux (3-5 minutes).

Stir in salt and a dash of pepper.

Slowly stir in milk  and cook until bubbly.

Stir in cheese a little at a time until melted. 

Drain macaroni and stir into cheese sauce.

I have said many times I am not a mac and cheese lover UNTIL I made Fleming's Steakhouse Chiptole Cheddar Macaroni and cheese recipe (google it).  It is awesome and is a family favorite for all the Holidays.
