No nutmeg?
 
I usually do use nutmeg. Doing something a little different this time with mustard seed and coriander.
Headed towards a cheese sauce with Gouda and Emmental
 
Hmmm... sounds fancy.
 
We shall see! I've been trying to slowly dial into the best mac & cheese recipe for a quick service application like a food truck or concession stand. Requirements include 1) doing it right... whatever that means, 2) Sort of made to order in that it's always consistent and perfect at time of service, and 3) Highlights the rest of the menu
I'm not a fan of the "bake it into one huge mac and cheese block" style
which seems to be the norm in those environments
I want noodles in a sauce, not a casserole made of noodles stuck together with cheese
 
@PrestonFitzgerald Have you tried the serious eats mac and cheese?
 
12:19 AM
ooh all this food talk
I could go for some mac and cheese!
 
So could I... but we're back to the whole low carb thing.
We went somewhere last night for dinner that usually has good mac and cheese and they were out! So I couldn't get any for Ben.
 
oof I am not prepared to be low carb
 
I hate it. And I don't hate much. I made four bundt cakes a week ago in protest.
 
I would be fine with only small quantities of dessert (I don't like too much sweetness in one go anyway) but I like pasta and such.
 
Yeah, dessert isn't really a deal breaker... but I mean... crap... I can't even have carrots... let alone bread. Makes eating a lot more expensive when you can only eat meat or vegetables.
 
12:35 AM
yeah that is rough :/
 
@Catija I'll have to check. I bet that was my starting point but I don't remember
 
There are a couple: Haven't tried this one: seriouseats.com/recipes/2017/01/…
Have tried this one but I think I did something wrong: seriouseats.com/recipes/2015/10/…

@Catija mine actually isn't quite like either of those. Will have to investigate :P
broiled with a little breadcrumbs + some bonus cheese on top. mm
