One of my main man squeezes, Josh Schereherjeh (yup 100% that’s how it’s spelled) from culinarybrodown.com created a recipe for some Mac n’ Cheese Fries with a Sriracha Stout Chili back in June of this year.
Long story short I’m using some common steps from his recipe to really shit-it-the-fuck-up over here. I can’t be bothered with the whole process of boiling noodles or making some sort of chili. I’ll instead be opting for some already frozen mac n’ cheese and most likely a large vat of ketchup for dipping.
-Some frozen Mac the fuck cheese
-Oil to fry with you fucking idiots.
The first step in this elaborate scheme of things is to obtain some mac n’ cheese. I opted for the family size Stouffers Mac n’ cheese bundle from the freezer section of my grocery store. I let the Mac n’ cheese thaw on my counter for a few hours while I casually drank in my yard and pretended like I was doing yard work. Once the mac was thawed, I lined a cookie sheet with some wax paper, loaded on the mac, and stuck in my freezer overnight.
I removed the mac the following day and proceeded to cut it into fry shaped sticks…or something. Might have been in my best interest to either score the mac with a knife before freezing, or let thaw for like 20 minutes after pulling it from the freezer. It was a real cock in the ass cutting this shit. Some of the “fries” broke and shit so that upset me, and either the knife I was using wasn’t sharp enough or I’m a bigger pussy than my dad tells me I am.
Once I had the mac n’ cheese all chopped up into fry-esque sticks, I coated them with some seasoned flour. After flouring I egg washed and then coated them with some crushed Cheetos. I would highly recommend after bathing them in the Cheetos to stick them back in the freezer for an hour or two. I didn’t do this because I’m fucked. This will help them cook more evenly. By the time I got to frying the last few they had thawed a little too much from sitting out, so fuck me.
