We’ll be honest: this week’s show is kind of a train wreck. Nobody gets hurt, mind you, there’s just a complete lack of proper instruction. Alexander and Dave are pretty lost when trying to prepare this recipe from Dave’s Aunt Beth. Then the panic sets in — luckily for them (and hopefully you, too!) the recipe turns out to be pretty darn tasty in the end.
The way Dave’s uncle wrote the recipe:
“Try to find large elbow macaroni regular is fine if you can”t
Large bags of shredded sharp, Monterey ,Colby,any other cheese you prefer I try and use at least 3 to 5 different kind of cheese. In sauce pan put a stick of butter melt add flour salt, pepper, dash of cayenne, about a tablespoon of vulcans spicy brown mustard blend together and add about three cups milk let thicken. Meanwhile cook macaroni drain and put in large baking pan. I usually use two boxes macaroni,then sprinkle cheeses into macaroni stir. Once sauce is thickened a little pour over macaroni. Brown some bread crumbs and sprinkle over top. Slice some fresh tomatoes and lay on top. Bake 350 for an hour.”
Our work through:
Boil macaroni, put aside.
In saucepan melt a stick of butter, saute in chopped onion if you want, let cook through before adding other ingredients. 3 cups milk, tablespoon of flour, tablespoon of cayenne, tablespoon of mustard and some salt and pepper. Heat and stir until slightly thick, then add in cheese and stir to incorporate. Pour over macaroni in buttered 9×13 pan.
Drizzle 3/4 cup breadcrumbs over top. Bake at 350 one hour.
