Fried Mac and Cheese Bites for Cocktails
Recipe by: onthemenu.blog
half a portion leftover mac and cheese (see former recipe)
1 cup panko
3/4 cup vegetable oil
Remove the leftover mac and cheese from the pan. It should come out in one piece. Using a sharp knife, cut it into equal bite-sized pieces.
Beat the 2 eggs in a shallow dish. Measure the panko out into another.
Roll each piece of the mac and cheese liberally in the egg, and then in the panko, pressing the panko onto the mac and cheese on all sides to get as much as possible to adhere. Set aside on a plate and repeat until all of the pieces of mac and cheese are coated in panko. Set aside.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat until a piece of panko that is tossed in immediately turns golden browm. Lower the heat and, working in batches, cook the mac and cheese until golden brown on the bottom, before flipping and cooking the other side. This will take about a minute a side. As you remove the pieces from the pan, lay them on a paper towel lined plate to drain.
Serve immediately while still hot and crispy, sprinkled with a little salt. Plain table salt is just fine, though Maldon salt crystals taste particularly delicious.
Chili Mac and cheese
Recipe by: N.M.C.M.
1 lb. ground beef (85% lean)
2 1/2 cups elbow macaroni
14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes with green chilies
8 oz can tomato sauce
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1 cup shredded colby jack cheese
3 1/2 cups water
Set Instant Pot to saute mode and add ground beef and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Stir often until all the beef is browned. Should take about 5 minutes. Press cancel and drain fat. Change Change
Sprinkle chili powder, cumin and 1/2 teaspoon salt on top of the browned meat. Then add macaroni on top (don’t stir). Add 3 1/2 cups water and make sure all macaroni is submerged. Add cans of tomato sauce and diced tomatoes right on top in the center. Do not stir! Change
Secure lid, make sure vent is set to sealing and pressure cook (“manual” on some Instant Pots) on high for 4 minutes. When timer is complete, quick release the pressure.
Remove lid and stir contents well. Everything will begin to thicken. Add 1 cup of shredded colby jack cheese and stir it in so it melts into the sauce. Change Change Change
Serve with additional shredded cheese on top and enjoy!
Notes- you don’t need a instant pot to make this. For stove top cook noodles separate, and add it to the meat sauce, you won’t need the water, can use 2 cans of tomato sauce instead.
I end up using the whole box of pasta, and I used 15 oz of tomato sauce, it did take more water to cover my pasta

Grown-Up Mushroom Mac and Cheese
Recipe by: onthemenu.blog
1/2 package (8 oz) macaroni or elbows
1 shallot, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, finely diced
8 oz assorted mushrooms, diced
2 Tbsps butter + 2 Tbsps butter
2 Tbsps flour
2 cups milk
1 Tbsp dry white wine
1 1/2 cups shredded or finely diced cheese
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 cup panko
1 bay leaf
1 tsp + 1/2 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
Put a large pan of salted water on to boil for the pasta.
While the pasta water is heating, put the shallot, garlic, 1 Tbsp of butter, 1 tsp of the thyme and the bay leaf in a large skillet over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly for a minute or so, until the shallot is translucent. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring constantly as well, until the mushrooms have released all of their juices and are tender, a few minutes. Add an additional tablespoon of butter and the white wine to the pan and stir until the butter has melted. Salt well.
Add the flour to the pan, lower the heat and stir constantly to create a paste – the flour will absorb all of the pan juices and it will coat the mushrooms. Keep on stirring for a few minutes until it is a pale golden brown.
By this time your pasta water should have come to a boil so tip in your dry pasta and cook it for 2 minutes less than the directions on the box before draining; it will continue to cook when you bake it. Take this opportunity to preheat the oven to 350.
Add the milk to the pan with the mushrooms and stir, scraping down to remove any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan until the mixture starts to thicken, 3-5 minutes. As soon as the mixture starts to thicken, stir in the mustard and add all of the cheese. For this recipe, I used a mixture of grated mozzarella, Manchego and a creamy cheese from Vermont with black truffle but use your favorites. Remove from the heat and set aside; the cheese will continue to melt due to the heat of the sauce.
As soon as you have drained the pasta, whisk the cheese sauce to further combine the cheese with the sauce and add the drained pasta to the skillet. Stir well to combine and remove the bay leaf at this point. Check for seasoning, add more salt if needed. Pour the mixture into a buttered oven safe dish and set aside while you prepare the topping.
Melt the remaining butter in a frying pan. As soon as it has melted, add the thyme and the panko (or breadcrumbs if you prefer) and stir to combine. Keep the heat low and stir constantly: you want golden brown, crispy goodness and it takes just a second of inattention on your part for the panko to burn. Spread the crispy panko mixture over the top of the pasta dish, sprinkle on the grated Parmesan, Place the dish in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
Remove the now bubbling dish from the oven and wait 5-10 minutes before serving it so nobody burns the roof of their mouth. I highly recommend serving this with a green salad, the more bitter the leaves the better.
