Mac and Cheese: Dakota, Jessica, Ashely

Rating: *** Ingredients: 2 cups of macaroni ½ cup of milk 3 tbsp. butter 2 tbsp. flour 3 cups of grated cheddar cheese Instructions: Prepare pasta at home according to package directions. Store in a seasonable container and place it in a zip lock bag. Place shredded cheese in another container, flour in its own small bag/container, and put the milk in a small water bottle so it does not spill. Once the fire box is set up and everything is ready to cook, place a grill over the firebox, then out your Dutch oven over top. Put the 3 tbsp. of butter in and wait for it to melt, add in the half cup of milk. Put 1 tbsp. of flour at a time until it has thickened and you have a roux. Add cooked macaroni to the Dutch oven and stir to coat with the sauce. Let pasta cook with sauce until heated throughout. Top with 3 cups of shredded cheese. Cover and cook for 5 minutes until the cheese melts. The mac and cheese turned out alright for our cooking group. It was very easy and fast to make sine the noodles were already precooked. The only real tricky part was making sure the sauce mix didn’t burn to the bottom of the Dutch oven, so our group was stirring the pot constantly to prevent this from happening. We decided to cook 2 cups of macaroni, and it was a perfect amount for the whole class to enjoy a little portion of the mac and cheese. Overall it was extremely fast to make, and it tasted pretty good, although I probably would not make this again at home where I have more tools,ingredients, and time to prepare something better.
