We're so lucky to have Top Chef Richard Blais bringing us new and fabulously delicious recipes ALL HOLIDAY SEASON this year! Our stomachs might not be able to handle it all!
Ahhhh! So good!
Here's his wonderful recipe for Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt Macaroni & Cheese:
1⁄4 cup flour 1⁄4 cup butter
￼1. Melt the butter and add in the flour while cooking in a pan over low heat.
2. Continue to whisk the mixture until the flour’s color is tan and has a
sand-like texture. Reserve.
2 cups elbow macaroni, cooked
13 fl oz. low fat milk
1 /4 cup Dannon Oikos plain Greek nonfat yogurt 1⁄4 cup roux (recipe above)
6 oz. white cheddar cheese, shredded
1oz. cream cheese
1⁄4 tsp garlic salt
1⁄4 tsp white pepper
1⁄4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
1. Cook elbow macaroni in boiling salted water per box instructions and then chill under cold water. Set aside.
2. Bring the milk to a boil. Then reduce the heat and whisk the roux into the hot milk. After the roux and the milk are fully combined, mix in the cream cheese and the Dannon Oikos plain Greek nonfat yogurt. Once this mixture starts to thicken, remove it from the heat and whisk in the shredded cheese, garlic salt, white pepper, and nutmeg.
3. Add the chilled macaroni to the sauce.
