And now for the Mac and Cheese with Cracklins
Started with a roux
Added some hot milk
Mixed some white cheddar and Monterrey jack, salt, pepper, and nutmeg
Boiled pasta. I was careful to under cook it, knowing it'd finish cooking in the oven.
Chopped up some Cracklins from Ronnies
Mixed together the pasta and cheese sauce and chopped up cracklins
Topped with panko, Parmesan, and the shavings from the chopped cracklins
Baked at 350 for 40 minutes. My oven runs cold so it took a little longer. Fresh out the oven.
And the piece de resistance...some homemade sweet potato habenero sauce. Got the idea from Cochon. It was easy. Boiled the potatoes and sauteed some veggies..
Blended those together with water, ONE hab (trust me I made the mistake of adding four like the recipe I found suggested..lets just say I remade it) some vinegar and some lemon juice, and voila!
