Tomorrow is the big day in the football world, Super Bowl Sunday! One of the best parts about football and watching football, is all the food that is usually involved. I don't know about you but I love all things cheesy, deep fried, gooey, hot, dipable, bite sized, you name it I will eat it.
One of my favourite dips is my Hot Artichoke and Spinach dip, it is so gooey and bubbly and perfect for chips and bread. I also absolutely love hot wings, sometimes it is great to have a bit more meat so my Buffalo Drumsticks are amazing and have that perfect amount of heat. So there are a few more ideas for you for your Super Bowl party.
But the crowning glory of this blog post are these stunning sliders. Let's all give thanks to the combination of two amazing dishes all pilled on a whole wheat bun. Give a round of applause to the amazing Smoked Mac and Cheese Pulled Pork Sliders.
Smoked Mac and Cheese Pulled Pork Sliders
For the Macaroni
250 grams of double smoked cheddar cheese, shredded
4 cups of 2% milk
3 tablespoons of salted butter
1/2 cup of all purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
1 bag of elbow macaroni noodles, around 900grams
For the Pulled Pork
2 - 2 lbs pork tenderloins
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
1 bottle of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce, or a sweet bbq sauce of your choice
For the buns use my Whole Wheat Buns recipe
In a crock pot place the pork tenderloins, salt and pepper. Put the setting on low and cook for 6 hours of until the pork easily shreds apart.
While the pork is cooking, make the buns. Separate the dough into 20 smaller buns instead of 12 regular sized buns. Cook them according to the directions.
In a large pot, fill up with water till about 3 inches from the top. Add 2 teaspoons of salt and bring to a boil. Once boiling add the dry noodles. Cook until tender and and still are a bit firm.
In a medium sized pot on high heat melt the 3 tablespoons of salted butter. Once the butter is bubbly and melted, with a whisk add the flour and whisk until it is incorporated into the butter. Keep whisking for 3 minutes to cook the flour. While whisking add the milk. Keep stirring and once it starts to thicken, turn the heat down. Add enough salt and pepper to your taste. Add all the cheese and stir until melted.
Once the cheese sauce is cooked, drain the cooked noodles from the water. Place the cooked noodles back in the pot and add the cheese sauce onto the noodles. Stir all together and set aside.
Once the meat is done, shred it with two forks. Add the BBQ sauce and toss until all the meat is coated.
Slice all the buns in half and add about 1/4 cup of meat and mac and cheese onto the buns, place the tops back on and enjoy. You can add some mayo or butter onto the buns as well.
I hope you all get to over indulge and eat till you are bursting while watching the big game.
