Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Hot & Spicy Cheez-Its
  • 2 cups dry macaroni
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups bleu cheese
  • 1/4 cup sriracha
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Pulse Cheez Its in food processor and set aside
  2. Preheat oven to 350
  3. Cook macaroni as directed on package, but only boil for about 80% of cooking time. It will finish in oven.
  4. While macaroni is cooking, in large saucepan melt butter on low
  5. When butter is fully melted, slowly start sprinkling flour in the pan and continuously mix. The idea is that the mixture of flour and butter will form almost a paste.
  6. Pour in just a little of the milk and whisk until smooth. Keep on repeating until all milk is blended in.
  7. Turn heat to medium-high and continuously stir. We want to get the sauce just to boiling and thicken.
  8. When the sauce starts to heat up, you will notice it start to thicken. Just continue to stir and once boiling, continue stirring for one minute.
  9. Remove from direct heat and slowly add 2 cups of the cheese to the bechamel while stirring.
  10. Add sriracha to sauce
  11. Once this is a smooth sauce, add cheese sauce and drained macaroni to a baking dish and mix together.
  12. Add remaining 1 cup of cheese on top of macaroni and cheese
  13. Add Cheez Its to top
  14. Put the dish into the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until top layer of cheese is golden brown.
  15. Serve!
