The hubs and I recently went to a restaurant in downtown Las Vegas called Park. I love this place. They have really fun menu items like: Chicken and Waffle Sandwich, BBQ Bacon Burger and my favorite: Philly Mac-N-Cheese Sandwich. Yep, you read that right!
It was so awesome I knew I had to create my own version of it. These are perfect for a backyard party. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
First up, crock pot mac-n-cheese, then the meat and fixins’.
Crock Pot Mac N Cheese
Prep: 15 Minutes
Total: 2-3 hours
2 cups of cooked Elbow Macaroni
1 and 1/2 Cups of Whole Milk
1/2 Stick of Butter, Melted
2 and 1/2 Cups of Shredded Cheese (I used a 6 cheese blend that included provolone and mozzarella to make it more like a philly steak)
3 Eggs, Beaten
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
1 12 oz. Can of Evaporated Milk
1 Teaspoon of Salt
1/2 Teaspoon of Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon of Dry Mustard
Boil and Drain your macaroni. In a crock pot add: Melted Butter, Cheese, Eggs, Evaporated Milk, Sour Cream, Salt, Pepper and Dry Mustard. Stir in cooked macaroni. Cook on Low heat for about 2 hours, no more than 3.
Philly- Mac-N-Cheese Sliders:
Total: 2.5-3 Hours
1 Pound of Beef for Stir Fry, Chopped
1/4 Cup Worcestershire
1/2 Cup of Ketchup
Large Green Pepper, Chopped
Large Red Pepper, Chopped
8 oz Mushrooms, Sliced (optional)
1 Onion, Chopped
2 Tablespoons of Butter, Divided
Olive Oil, enough to Coat Pan, Divided
Mix together the ketchup and worcestershire. Put chopped meat in zip lock bag and pour ketchup mixture over meat. Add more ketchup and worcestershire if you desire. Marinate for 10 or more minutes.
While meat is marinating, chop your onion and peppers. In a small skillet, cook your onion in 1 Tablespoon of butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. After 10 minutes, add in your mushrooms, cook for another 5-10 minutes. In a separate small skillet, cook your peppers in 1 Tablespoon of butter in olive oil over medium heat. Cook for 10 minutes. Remove peppers, keep warm. Cook meat in the same skillet with all of the marinade juice for about 5-10 minutes on medium heat.
On your slider buns, place meat, onions/mushrooms, peppers and top with mac-n-cheese. Fall into a coma of deliciousness! What party recipes have you tried lately? Let me know in the comment section.
