McGyver in the Kitchen: Mac and Cheese on The Grill…
Sounds messy, but not. “Grilled” Mac and Cheese.
I’m known to create things to eat just when I’m told ‘there’s nothing to eat.’ I find that hard to believe. I almost always have the pantry staples (okay, they may not be staples to some, but they are to me). Because of this ‘inventiveness’ I’m sometimes called McGyver in the kitchen (for some of those who know the 1980s action series, it makes sense).
Recently, I was grilling New York strips and asparagus for dinner. As I was preparing to grill, I was putting away the pasta left over from the little ones’ dinner. So, I took the pasta, added chopped prosciutto, shredded cheese, a splash of milk and topped with bread crumbs (I would recommend replacing with panko). I placed the concoction in oven-safe ramekins and let it join the steaks and asparagus. I simply put a piece of foil on the top shelf of the grill and set the ramekins on the foil. You don’t want them on direct flame.
As I was cooking the other items (with closed lid at times), the mac and cheese baked to a bubbly golden brown and absorbed that magical grill flavor.
And there you go. Mac & Cheese on the grill. Not as messy as it sounds and so enhanced with that flavor only the grill can bring to the table.
