This isn’t art (OR IS IT) but people keep asking me for recipes and I don’t know where to put them so here we are.
You probably just want a macaroni and cheese recipe for your Ninja Foodi, so please excuse the lack of profound life lessons or unexpectedly detailed descriptions of my childhood. (Everything before the air-frying part works for Instant Pot as well, obv).
1lb box of Rotini pasta
4 cups broth (veggie, chicken, whichever)
2 tbsp butter
3-4 tsp of white truffle oil to taste(a little goes a long way)
12 oz evaporated milk
8-10 oz white cheddar
8-10 oz gruyere
panko crumbs (enough to coat the top of a bowl)
parmesan/asiago cheese blend
--Add pasta, broth, butter to the Foodi and stir. Cover with the pressure lid and secure it. Set the pressure cook time to 3 minutes and hit Start. It’ll build pressure, then count, so the total time is roughly 8-15 min.
--When the timer is up, release the pressure immediately. Remove the lid, press Saute and then Start.
--Add truffle oil and evaporated milk & stir well.
--Next add the cheese! Slowly add it in while stirring. Save about 1/4th of your Gruyere.
--Once you're satisfied with the cheesiness level, smooth it all out so it's even on top. Turn everything off for a second.
--Add the panko crumbs, the rest of the gruyere, and parmesan/asiago if you'd like. (It’s good no matter what you do, so you can use just panko, or just panko and parmesan, or just panko and gruyere).
--Close the Air Fryer lid and use the Air Fryer setting at 390 for 5 minutes, or however long you need to make the top crunchy. I start with 4 min and open it every 2-3 min afterwards to see if it's browned enough.
--Serve. Amaze and delight your friends or cats. Don't feed this to your cats probably.
