How to cook:
  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Place the cauliflower pieces on a large baking sheet, and toss with enough olive oil to thinly coat each piece. Start with about 2 tablespoons, and if some pieces are still dry after tossing, add a little more olive oil. Sprinkle a generous amount of flaky kosher salt on the cauliflower pieces then arrange them into a flat layer. Place the cauliflower in the oven on the lower middle rack and roast for 18-20 minutes or until the bottoms of the cauliflower are golden brown. Let the cauliflower cool completely.
  3. Reduce the oven temperature to 435 degrees F.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. When it starts to sizzle, add the minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds. Pour in the heavy cream. Add a big pinch of flaky kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, dried oregano, smoked paprika, grated nutmeg, rosemary, and thyme. Continue stirring over medium-low heat until the mixture starts to simmer and the cream has reduced and thickened. Keep an eye on it because it will and can bubble over if you’re not careful. You may have to adjust the heat during this process. After 8 to 10 minutes when the cream mixture has reduced enough to become visibly thicker, larger bubbles breaking the surface, add the cream cheese if using. Stir to combine.
  5. Turn off the heat and add the pecorino romano or parmigiano reggiano cheese. Stir to combine, then add half of the mild cheddar, and all of the colby jack or sharp cheddar cheese.
  6. Place all of the roasted cauliflower into a medium-sized bowl, and toss in the remaining half of mild cheddar, and 2 ounces of whole milk mozzarella. When the mixture is evenly combined, pour in half of the cheese sauce and gently fold to saturate. If you feel the mixture is too dry, add a little more cheese sauce. You don’t want to pour it all in because cauliflower heads vary in size and weight, and just in case you have too little cauliflower and far too much sauce (you can save whatever sauce is left in the fridge for another day), you don’t want it swimming in sauce. The feel you’re going for is moist and almost pasty, so add just enough cheese sauce until it’s at that point. Remember, this sauce will loosen as it bakes, so if you add too much you’ll have very runny cauliMac&cheese.
  7. Pour the cheesy cauliflower mixture into a small baking dish, and bake on the middle rack of your oven until bubbly, which should take between 15-20 minutes.

Grown-Up Bacon Mac & Cheese

Grown-Up Bacon Mac & Cheese
A CarnalDish Original
Provided by: Chef Resha
Total time: 65 minutes
Cook time: 50 minutes
Prep time: 15 minutes
Yields: 4 servings
How to cook:
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with foil and lay each slice of bacon down with at least an inch of space between each slice. Place the baking sheet full of bacon on the lowest rack of your oven and let it cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp but still pliable. It will crisp even further once it’s baked, so don’t crisp it too much at this stage. Drain on paper towels and chop into bite sized pieces. Set aside.
  3. In a large pot, boil water for your pasta. Once it starts to boil, season with about a tablespoon of salt and stir to dissolve. Add the pasta and boil for 5 minutes. Reserve one cup of the pasta water just in case. Drain the pasta and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Don’t toss the pasta around, just let it sit while you rinse it — this helps keep some of the starch in place. Drain the cold water and let the cooled off pasta hang out on the sidelines while you make the cheese sauce.
  4. Rinse the pot you boiled the pasta in with cold water to cool it off completely then place back on top of your stove over medium heat. Add the butter to melt — once it starts to foam/sizzle, it’s ready for the flour. Add the flour and whisk vigorously until smooth and lump-free. Let this cook for 1 minute to get that “raw flour” flavor out. Add 1 cup of the half & half, and continue to whisk vigorously until smooth, about 20 to 30 seconds. Add the remaining 2 cups of half & half and continue whisking. Add the rosemary, thyme, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, nutmeg, and minced garlic — mix well. Taste it! Adjust the seasoning as you need to. Increase the heat to medium-high and allow the mixture to come up to a simmer — whisking the whole time. The mixture will thicken very quickly so don’t walk away from it. It should take about 5 minutes to start simmering. Once the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, remove it from the heat completely. Add the parmigiano-reggiano and cheddar cheese and stir gently until it’s melted and smooth, about a minute or two. Either in the same pot or in a separate large bowl, combine the cooked and cooled off pasta with the cheese sauce. Gently fold together until it’s completely coated. Mixture should be slightly loose but very creamy and easy to work with, if it’s too thick, thin it out with a little of the starchy pasta water. Fold in the basil and green onion at the last minute.
  5. Transfer half of the pasta and cheese mixture to a lightly greased baking dish (I used about 4 quick sprays of PAM cooking spray). Sprinkle ½ cup of the mozzarella cheese over the first half of the pasta/cheese mixture, then pour the remaining pasta/cheese mixture on top as a second layer — add the remaining mozzarella cheese on top. Gently swirl a spoon or butterknife thru the mac and cheese mixture to ensure the mozzarella cheese is evenly combined throughout the dish. Sprinkle the top with the bacon and breadcrumbs.
  6. Bake in a 400 degree oven on the middle oven rack for 25-35 minutes, or until golden brown on top and bubbly all over.
  7. Allow the dish to cool for about 10 minutes before you dive in (trust me, it’s molten-lava hot!).
  8. Enjoy.

Seafood Mac and Cheese

Get Seafood Mac and Cheese Recipe from Food Network
Provided by: Kardea Brown
Total time: 90 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
Yields: 10 servings
Number of ingredients: 20
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced finely
  • 1 pound blue or lump crabmeat, picked for shells and chopped
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 4 ounces Gruyere, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 4 ounces Parmesan, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 12 ounces extra-sharp yellow Cheddar, shredded (about 3 cups)
  • 1 pound elbow macaroni
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
How to cook:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil add 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  3. Heat the remaining tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the crab and cook, stirring occasionally, until the crab starts to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Scoop the contents of the skillet into a bowl and set aside.
  4. Deglaze the skillet with the sherry and reduce for about 5 minutes. Add the butter to melt, then add the flour and cook, stirring, until there are no remaining clumps. Whisk in the heavy cream, milk, parsley, tarragon, thyme, mustard and paprika, followed by the Gruyere, Parmesan and 8 ounces of the Cheddar. Bring to a simmer, then lower the heat and simmer on low for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Meanwhile, add the noodles to the boiling water and cook according to the package instructions. Reserve 1 cup pasta water, then drain the noodles and return them to the pot (I like to just leave a little pasta water in the pot when I drain it). Add the cheese sauce, cream cheese and crab and mix well. (If the mixture is too stiff, add some pasta water 1/4 cup at a time.) Season with more salt and pepper, if needed.
  6. Pour the mixture into a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Layer the remaining 4 ounces Cheddar evenly over the top. Bake until the cheese is nice and brown, 10 to 15 minutes. (Be careful, the cheese may bubble over in the oven.) Let rest for 15 to 20 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with parsley.
