Ruben Mac and Cheese

I’ve never actually tried this, but will next time I entertain.  It looked amazing on Rachel Ray’s show.


handful of fresh parsley

1 t paprika

1/4 c spicy brown mustard

2 T flour

2 c milk

3 t butter

1.5 cups grated cheese each: white cheddar, greir, swiss

3 T flour

2 slices crispy rye bread

Sour craut

corned been 3/4 lb. thick slices

Instructions: boil the pasta water, and preheat the broiler. 

Cheese mixture: melt the butter, add flour and wisk together.  Add milk, wisk, add S+P, and let it thicken while the cheese is grated.  Melt in 2/3 of the cheese and add 1/4 cup spicy brown mustard. 

Topping: Toast the bread and butter, put in the food processor to make breadcrumbs with a handful of fresh parsley and 1 t of paprika.

Rinse and drain the sour craut, drain and squish out the liquid.  Chop up the corned beef and train and return the pasta to the pan.  Ad all ingredients and stir.  Put into a baking casserole dish and top with the breadcrumbs and extra cheese.  Broil to brown.
