I developed this Seared Pork Belly Macaroni & Smoked Gouda Cheese for the new eBook: Mo’ Macaroni and Cheese: 30 Mouthwatering Recipes for America’s Favorite Comfort Food. The recipes in this e‑cookbook were created the group here in LA known as Los Angeles Food Bloggers (FBLA). Mo’ Macaroni and Cheese: 30 Mouthwatering Recipes for America’s Favorite Comfort Food. The e‑book contains 30 different delicious macaroni and cheese recipes from some of my favorite Southern California food bloggers. You can purchase a copy at Amazon for just a $1.99. All proceeds go towards the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
From the book:
Can you ever have too much Mac and Cheese?
We don’t think so. Macaroni and cheese is America’s comfort food. And to prove it, here’s a collection of 30 tried-and-true mac and cheese recipes from Food Bloggers Los Angeles, a group of Los Angeles-based bloggers.
In fact, this cookbook was inspired by one of our meetings, when a member asked, “Do we really need more recipes?”
That’s a good question, and we pondered it for a moment. Then we decided to meet the challenge with our members’ best renditions of a beloved dish: macaroni and cheese.
After all, can you ever have enough recipes for mac and cheese? Of course not! And these delicious mac and cheese recipes, which range from gourmet indulgence to healthy convenience, prove it.
I’m guessing my pork belly macaroni and cheese recipe probably falls under “gourmet indulgence”. But it doesn’t have to. Pork belly is actually rather humble food. Because pork belly is bacon. Well, I mean it’s the same cut of the pig. Bacon is cured and often smoked. But it starts out as pork belly. So it’s hardly what you’d call eatin’ high on the hog. Besides, you can make bacon, right? So you can make pork belly macaroni and cheese too. GREG
