Pancetta Jalapeno Mac n Cheese

I have made many a Mac n Cheese (Gruyere Broccoli, Almost Fire Version, Jalapeno Bacon) and it is probably the cornerstone of my culinary career.  For Easter, it was requested that I make mac n cheese and I wanted to use the basic foundation and switch it up a bit so I added jalapeno which is an old and common friend, and introduced a new ingredient in pancetta.

Garlic Parmesan Wings are one of our most popular posts.  Go figure.  I tried to take that concept and apply it to the idea of a Buffalo Chicken Dip with roasted garlic and jalapenos, and a wing sauce base.  Debuting at the Superbow  – uh I mean big game this easy and deeply tasteful dip was a great success.

Feta and Spinach Turkey Burgers with Roasted Red Pepper Mayo

Many different elements came together both in and on the burgers.  There was garlic sauteed spinach, fresh feta, and jalapenos in the burgers and a roasted red pepper mayo spread on the fresh baked buns.  We did not make the buns, but got them in the Strip District where we get most of our cooking supplies.  These were made the same night as Roasted Red Pepper Bisque and I kept a bit of the peppers aside for the mayo spread.
