Guess what starts tomorrow? OKTOBERFEST! It’s Germany’s best holiday, and after attending several years ago I’ve never been prouder to be German!
Unfortunately I won’t be in Munich to celebrate this year, so instead I decided that I would do a recipe in honor of Oktoberfest. A recipe with an important German ingredient…
To make my wonderful Beer Mac ‘n’ Cheese, you’ll need:
16 Ounce Box of Pasta
3 Tablespoons Butter
3 Tablespoons Flour
1 Cup German Beer
1 Cup Cream
4 Ounces Cream Cheese
8 Ounces Shredded Cheddar Cheese
8 Ounces Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
First cook and drain the pasta according to the directions on the box.
While your pasta is cooking, melt butter and add in the flour.
Mix until it turns into a thick paste.
Next pour in the best part (the beer!) and mix.
Then add and mix the creme too!
Bring the mixture to a low boil, then add in the cream cheese. Stir and heat until it’s melted.
Next add the second best part: the cheese!
Heat and stir until everything is melted.
Finally mix the sauce with the pasta.
And then serve… with your favorite German beer of course!
