Let’s have a little honest hour, ladies. We may not be too proud of it, but we’ve for sure all done it: come home from a boozy bar night out and rummaged through the ridge and kitchen cupboards for the greasiest, cheesiest, dirtiest, most delicious thing we can find. The calories don’t count when it’s 3 a.m. and we’ve had enough gin & sodas to sufficiently intoxicate an entire soccer team. You know what?? No. Big. Deal. OWN IT.

As I’ve matured (**term to be loosely interpreted**) I gone from Doritos & Pizza Pops to by own concoction that I SWEAR eliminates my hangover the next day — my DRUNKEN MAC & CHEESE! The amazing this about this “recipe”¬†(**again, term to be loosely interpreted**) is that it really can be altered in soooo many ways and the more things you throw in it, the better it turns out. PLUS – it’s a fridge cleaner! Look at that… double whammy!! The only thing you have to keep in mind is: the richer & creamier the better ūüėČ

Try this the next time you come home late night & let me know what goodies you add to it – I’m always looking for new ideas!!!

RECIPE

Pasta

2 litres of cooked Scooby Doo

1 tbsp of Dijon mustard

4 tbsp of Philadelphia cream cheese

4 tbsp of sour cream

3 tbsp of butter

2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1.5 cup  of 2% milk

1/3 cup chopped green onions

Small can of strained diced tomatoes

1 pkg of diced packaged ham

Salt & pepper to taste

 

Topping

2 tbsp butter

2 cups breadcrumbs – ideally Japanese Panko!

 

DIRECTIONS

In a large saucepan, melt butter.  Add cold milk and whisk vigorously until dissolved. Cook sauce on medium-low heat until thick and bubbly. Add all cheeses, Dijon, sour cream, onions, tamtoes, ham, 1 tablespoon of salt, and 1 tablespoon pepper. Cook until cheeses are fully melted, stirring occasionally.

In a separate pan melt 2 tablespoons butter and then mix in panko breadcrumbs until the butter is thoroughly absorbed.

Add cooked Scoopy Doo pasta to cheese mixture and mix thoroughly. Place pasta mixture in a 13 by 9 baking dish and top with bread crumbs. Place in the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

For extra crispy topping, place under broiler after baking until breadcrumbs turn golden brown.

And have yourself the most amazing drunken feast of your life! I swear it’s so good, you’ll want it sober too…. enjoy!!!
