Gorilla Mac & Cheese
Adapted from a recipe courtesy of Rich Bacchi and Jeff Greathouse of Gorilla Barbeque
From More Diners, Drive-ins and Dives

"Now this is my kind of cheese-to-pasta ratio, cheesy good. Be forewarned, it takes some serious, constant whisking to get the cheese sauce right - quite a workout, but worth it." - Guy Fieri

Makes 8 servings
Kosher salt, for the pasta water
5 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
3 1/2 cups shredded Asiago cheese
3 1/2 cups shredded four-cheese blend
8 cups large ribbed elbow macaroni
1 Spanish onion, peeled and cut into chunks
10 garlic cloves
4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 1/2 tablespoons ground oregano
1 1/2 tablespoons paprika
1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup sour cream
1 eggs, beaten lightly
1 1/2 cups Cheddar-flavor Goldfish crackers, pulverized

Preaheat the oven to 350 F. Bring a large pot of walted water to a boil over high heat.
Toss the cheeses together in a large bowl.
Boil the macaroni until it is about two-thirds cooked; drain, and transfer to a large bowl. Toss the hot pasta with 4 cups of the cheese mixture.
Puree the onion and garlic in a food processor. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat until the foam subsides. Scrape the pureed vegetables into the pot; it should sizzle. Reduce the heat to low and whisk in the oregano, paprika, salt and pepper.
Whisk in the milk, heavy cream, and sour cream and continue whisking until everything comes back to a low simmer. Whisk in about 6 more cups of the cheese mixture and keep whisking until the cheese melts; the mixture will stop simmering. Whisk in the eggs.
pour the hot cheese sauce over the pasta, mix well, and transfer it into a 10 by 15-inch baking dish. Scatter the remaining cheese over the macaroni, and top with the pulverized crackers. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and then aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.

Hope I didn't make any typos!

Thanks! Just in time for Thanksgiving.

Kids in the Kitchen said...

Does anyone know if the 8 cups macaroni is 8 cups cooked or uncooked?

Tanya said...

Kids, I'm pretty sure it would have to be uncooked, because part of the instructions is to boil the macaroni.

This recipe makes A LOT! :-)

Anonymous said...

what four cheeses should the four cheese blend consist of?

Dora said...

Anon, Mozzarella, Provolone, Romano and Asiago

Dora, I just watched the show and the 4-cheese blend was: Fontina, Asiago, Provolone and Parmesan. Not Mozzarella & Romano.

Also - he used 4 (four) eggs, not 1 (one)
