Just in case you weren’t sure Mac and Cheese was the ultimate comfort food – this one seals the deal. Smoked cheese and smoked chicken, Mac and Cheese has never been so good.
Just in case you weren’t sure mac and cheese was the ultimate male comfort food – this one seals the deal. Take the creamy goodness of smooth rich smoked cheese over copious amounts of pasta, and toss it some steroids. Ok, a lot of steroids. I added all the testosterone I could think of, without getting a call from the health department. Otherwise, it would have just gotten awkward. If you smoke a chicken yourself beforehand you can gorge on poultry all week. Or a turkey. Heck, substitute any smoked meat you want in this, and it won’t hurt my feelings.
