We Turned Mac & Cheese Into CHILAQUILES and CHEESECAKE Recipes

In what has become a fun exercise of our kitchen creativity, Foodbeast personalities and friends have been cooking up themed recipes for the past weeks. Shelter at home has really left us with some prime time to think up some Foodbeast-worthy recipes such as Elote Ramen and Pancake Mix Funnel Cakes! In this next round of quarantine cooking, we’ve set our hearts on the warm, cheesy comfort food that is mac & cheese.

Tapping into our fond memories of what mac & cheese mean to us, we came up with a collection of recipes that are easy to make at home and mouthwatering. Pushing the culinary boundaries this week are Bacon-Wrapped, Mac & Cheese-Stuffed Pasilla Peppers, Macaroni Chilaquiles, Quarantine Casserole, and a Mac & Cheesecake. Sheesh, this week’s roster of recipes are definitely worthy homages to arguably one of the greatest comfort food dishes ever.

Check out the video above and stay tuned to what ingredient we’re focusing on in the next round up of recipes!

This Looks Like A Chicken Wing, But You Won’t Believe What This Chef Actually Fried

Chicken-Wings-Stuffed

Korean chef Elliot Taesoon Kahng is known for making awesome recipes on his Instagram. One of his most recent dishes, especially, is pretty ingenious.

As part of an early April Fool’s prank, @taesoon84 took the skins from fried chicken wings and did something amazing with them. After carefully removing the meat and the bone from the wings, the Instagram personality stuffed three different wings with macaroni and cheese, falafel and mashed potatoes, respectively.

He calls them April Fools Fried Chicken.

The faux wings are then floured, beer battered and deep fried. You couldn’t tell they were any different from real chicken wings.

Imagine expecting to bite into a crispy wing and getting a mouthful of mashed potatoes, or the delight of finding macaroni and cheese.

Brilliant.

Kraft Has Plans To Remove The Artificial Colorings From Their Mac & Cheese

Kraft-Yellow-Color

Orange and blue have become synonymous with the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese brand. The bright orange, derived from synthetic coloring, is now set to undergo some natural changes.

Beginning next year, Original Kraft Macaroni & Cheese will replace colors Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 with more natural ingredients. The brand said in a statement that they’ll be using paprika, annatto and turmeric in its Macaroni & Cheese to replicate that famous bright orange coloring.

The big change is set to take place in 2016 because Kraft will need the rest of the year to figure out a recipe that both keeps the color and doesn’t affect flavor.

Yellow 5 and Yellow 6, known as Tartrazine and Orange Yellow, are synthetic lemon dyes that are added to food for color. They’ve been known to cause asthma and hyperactivity in children.
