Brisket Mac ‘n Cheese

img_3813It was a rainy night on Sullivan’s Island and no one could pick a restaurant so I pulled together a last minute dinner party.  However,  there was not a lot of time to cook and its hard to figure out if there will be 6, 10 or 16 friends coming over so a main dish meal with a salad was definately the way to go.  As we all know, some folks think the doorbell is their R.S.V.P. especially when the event is pulled together last minute.

First thing was to make the traditional Mac ‘n cheese but added a twist by going to Lewis BBQ in Charleston for some of their world famous chopped brisket.  Ummmm, amazing served along with a salad…done and done.

Making It

  • Make the  mac ‘n cheese
  • Send the housetern down to the best BBQ place around and get two pounds of their chopped brisket, and grab some extra BBQ sauce.  If you have tons of time then make some short ribs
  • Layer the baking dish with half the mac ‘n cheese mix
  • Spread the meat on top then cover with the rest of the mac ‘n cheese, add 4 ounces of shredded sharp cheddar, 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese, a half of cup of chopped chives
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes then let rest for 10 minutes and serve

Always smart to landscape with flowers you can pluck and throw in a vase…saves time and money.
