  • hello this is chef john from food wishes comm with instant mac and cheese that's
  • right we're gonna do a no boil no bake one pan mac and cheese that could be
  • made just as fast as this stuff from the box not to mention it's gonna taste way
  • better since we're gonna use real cheese and the ones we want and i know that all
  • sounds too good to be true but it is and what follows is video
  • proof so with that let's go ahead and get started
  • by bringing some cold fresh milk up to a simmer on medium heat and while we're
  • waiting for that we can go ahead and toss in some kosher salt a little shake
  • of cayenne and a very very tiny pinch of freshly grated nutmeg alright just a
  • hint in fact if you're gonna put too much don't put any and then we'll also
  • go ahead and sneak in about a tablespoon of butter and then what we're gonna do
  • once this comes up to a simmer is believe it or not stir our dry elbow
  • macaroni directly into this milk so yes we're gonna completely skip the boil the
  • pasta step and we're simply gonna cook it in what will eventually be our cheese
  • sauce and one big tip here do not under cook your pasta
  • alright so due to the full time it says in the package and we don't have to stir
  • this constantly but we do want to stir it often so at least every couple
  • minutes and of course while that's cooking in between strains we can go
  • ahead and grade our cheese and this time i went with two kinds of cheddar an
  • extra sharp orange and a medium white and the reason I'm going with this
  • combination besides I love the taste I think that's going to produce the most
  • attractive color but anyway once our cheeses that we'll go back and check our
  • pasta and this is what mine look like after cooking in that milk for eight
  • minutes and then what we'll do once our pastas cooked is reduce our heat to the
  • lowest setting and then we will jump our cheese all in at once and we will give
  • it a stir until it just melts which is only gonna take a few seconds at which
  • point we're gonna turn off the heat and quickly cover this and then let it sit
  • undisturbed for exactly three minutes and during that brief time something
  • sort of magical happens which you are just about to see okay so after letting
  • it rest for three minutes we'll go ahead and pull off the lid and we will give
  • that a stir and as you can see our sauce has thickened up beautifully
  • and those holes in our elbow macaroni have sucked it in through I believe
  • capillary action but don't quote me on that I only have a two-year degree but
  • anyway we'll go ahead and give that a stir as well as taste it for seasoning
  • it might need is just a little touch of salt so I want to hand stirred some in
  • and give it one last taste and that's it once we think that's tasting good we'll
  • go ahead and serve that up immediately into a warm bowl since the professional
  • never puts hot food in a cold bowl and if everything's gone according to plan
  • you should be looking at one of the creamiest most gorgeous mac and cheese
  • you've ever seen and by the way if you're thinking that looks fine and I'm
  • sure it tastes amazing but my favorite part of mac and cheese is that crispy
  • crusty topping you get when you bake it well don't worry chef Jon's got your
  • back among other parts because we're gonna finish this with some panko
  • breadcrumbs that we've cooked in some melted butter until they're golden brown
  • and crispy and that is gonna very effectively mimic the top of the baked
  • casserole version so we will sprinkle over a few spoons of that and all will
  • be right with the world and that's it we'll go ahead and grab a spoon and go
  • in for a taste and despite all the shortcuts and this only taken about 10
  • minutes to make that my friends is just as good as any mac and cheese you'll
  • ever have plus unlike the much harder much more time-consuming baked version
  • if we happen to want a little extra crunch we can toss on some more crumbs
  • anytime we want and yes I will admit I thought I invented this when I first
  • tried it but then it became quickly apparent that like a thousand other
  • people had thought of this before me but since I didn't know that it still counts
  • and of course instead of the crumbs or in addition to we could do things like
  • chopped bacon or sauteed mushrooms for grilled vegetables or whatever else you
  • want I mean you are after all the Janis
  • Joplin of your mac and cheese topping and there are not many things that
  • wouldn't be great on top of this and since the possibilities are pretty much
  • endless I should probably sign off and let you get started so I'll just finish
  • by saying I really do hope you give this a try soon then head over to food
  • whooshes calm for all the ingredient amounts of Morpho as usual and as always
  • enjoy
  • you
