RECIPES FROM OUR
ike so many of us Floridians, we choose to travel home to visit the family at Christmas time rather then Thanksgiving. Staying home to attend a friends celebration, or hosting friends and family for a celebration of thankfulness. At Thanksgiving I like to keep it classic, mirroring my grandmother and the great dishes she would serve, as well as just a touch of my own style (or my favorite chef’s interpretation,) to make the dish even more memorable. Pick any of these tried and true side dishes and you will move to the top of the list of things everyone is thankful for!
AUNT CHELLE’S THREE CHEESE MACARONI AND CHEESE INGREDIENTS
Salt 2 pounds elbow macaroni 10 ounces (2 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt, such as Lawry’s 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 4 cups whole milk 3 cups shredded yellow American cheese 3 cups shredded gouda 5 cups shredded extra-sharp Cheddar DIRECTIONS 1/2 tablespoon smoked paprika Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and put a large pot of salted water on to boil. Add the macaroni to the boiling water and cook until al dente, 8 to 9 minutes. Drain well. Meanwhile, in a 4-quart pot, melt 2 sticks of the butter over low heat and then add the flour, mustard powder, seasoned salt, salt and pepper. Cook 2 minutes, stirring with a whisk. Add the milk a little at a time, whisking, and cook until thickened and smooth, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the American and gouda cheeses along with 4 cups of the Cheddar until melted and thoroughly combined. Add the cooked macaroni and stir well. Pour the macaroni mixture into a 3-quart baking dish and dot with the remaining 1/2 stick butter. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup Cheddar on top, then sprinkle with the smoked paprika. Bake until the cheese is browned on top, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve hot..
TRUFFLED CHEESE MASH INGREDIENTS
2 pounds russet potatoes, scrubbed Kosher salt 1 cup cream 4 ounces Sottocenare al Tartufo, grated (about1 1/2 cups) 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces Freshly ground black pepper
Put the potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with cold water by about 1 inch and add 2 tablespoons salt. Bring to a boil, uncovered, over high heat, and then reduce the heat to medium-high and simmer briskly until fork tender, about 45 minutes. Drain the potatoes. Quarter the potatoes and pass them through a food mill or ricer back into the pan. (Peel them first if you are using a ricer). When the potatoes are almost done, warm the cream in a small saucepan over medium-high heat to just under a simmer, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the cheese until melted. Set aside. Fold the hot cheese and cream into the potatoes. Then, over low heat, fold in the butter bit by bit until fully incorporated. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
