I have another Kraft Dinner recipe available. This time, I substituted Our Compliments Extra Creamy Cheddar brand macaroni and cheese ($0.66). It’s pretty good, and the macaroni is shorter, thicker and more curvey than traditional KD. The sauce is better, and has a sharper taste. This recipe also makes use of Blair’s Death Sauce, so it’s hot and aptly named Zuckervati’s Death Dinner:
- 3 TBS margarine
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 Pkg. Kraft Dinner or reasonable facsimile
- 3 Yves Veggie Jumbo Dogs or regular all-beef wieners
- 1 TBS Blair’s Original Death Sauce
- 1 tsp Jalapeno powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
Boil the KD noodles as per instructions, boiling the Jumbo Dogs as well. Drain the KD noodles and transfer the Jumbo Dogs to a cutting board. Slice them into 1/2 inch slices (actually, cut them up any way you want, it’s your food). Place the pot back on low heat, and add the margarine and the cheese powder, as well as the spices, and Blair’s Death Sauce. To avoid lumps, begin mixing the milk in slowly and allow the sauce to thicken before adding more. Once finished adding the milk, stir in the noodles and Jumbo Dogs, and mix it all up.
This recipe was a little hotter than I expected, explaining the late addition of garlic and onion powder — the heat was taking some of the flavour away. With a little more milk, the sauce became a really nice nacho-style sauce, and the heat is short-lived. Add a little salt if you like. Serves 2-4.
Say what you will about adding wieners to KD, but I’ve always liked it. The Yves Veggie Jumbo Dogs add a substantial amount of protein to an otherwise high-carbohydrate meal.
