The holidays may be a ways away but your favorite comfort food doesn’t have to be!
Check out celebrity Chef Ken Patrick‘s take on Smoked Gouda Mac n’ Cheese.
Try it out and share it with your friends and family and of course let us know how it turned out!
6 cups water
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp canola oil
1 pound small elbow macaroni
2 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp all purpose flour
1 tbsp minced garlic
¼ tsp cracked black pepper
2 cups milk
½ cup heavy cream
¼ pound smoked Gouda cheese, grated
¼ pound Parmesan, shredded
1 tsp truffle oil
chopped fresh chives & bacon, garnish
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Bring water, salt & canola oil to boil in a large sauce pot over high heat and bring to a boil.
3. Add the macaroni and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.
4. In a small, heavy saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic then flour and cook, whisking constantly, for about 3 minutes. Slowly add the milk & cream while whisking until the sauce is smooth and thick, about 8 minutes.
5. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the cheese until it melts. Lightly grease a 6 ½ by 10 inch casserole dish. Combine the cheese sauce, truffle oil and macaroni in a large mixing bowl and mix well.
6. Pour into casserole and bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 20 minutes.
7. Remove from the oven and serve hot. Garnish with chopped chives and bacon bits.

7. They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc.... But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS #StriveForGreatness #ThisOneIsForTheLand #PutSomeRespeckOnMyName Hahahaha!!! Yes sir
