- Creole Crawfish Mac and Cheese
1 lb. elbow macaroni
2 sticks butter
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. crawfish
Creole seasoning of choice to taste
1 can evaporated milk
1 c. milk
½ lb. three-cheese mix
Cook macaroni al dente, drain, toss with butter, and put in a deep casserole dish. Sauté chopped onion, bell pepper and garlic in butter, adding crawfish last and seasoning to taste.
Add to macaroni, both milks and cheese, and bake at 275 degrees until cheese is melted.
This a perfect comfort food that children will eat as well. The richness of the cheeses and the heavy milk, blended with the spices and crawfish, give a true Southern zing to mac and cheese.
