Smoked Mac N Cheese with Lamb and Brussel Sprouts

This recipe may start with a box of mac n cheese, but I promise it’s kicked up a notch. This may be my most involved meal yet. You do need an extra tool for this one. A smoker. Check out the ingredients and recipe below.

Here is what you need: 1 box of mac n cheese, 1 lb of ground lamb, 1/2 lb of brussel sprouts, shredded cheese, coconut oil, dill weed, ground cumin, ground garlic, sea salt, black pepper.

Cook the mac n cheese according to the directions. Sautee quartered brussel sprouts in coconut oil on medium heat until browned. Add ground lamb and brown. Season with sea salt, black pepper, dill weed, cumin, and garlic to taste. Drain meat sprout mixture of oil. Mix meat and brussel sprouts into the macaroni and add cheese sauce and one handful of shredded cheese. Pour mac n cheese mixture into a medium sized glass dish and top with a light coating of shredded cheese.

Heat smoker to approximately 300° and place mac n cheese onto the smoker for 1.5 hours uncovered. I used a pellet smoker but any smoker type will work. I used Pit Boss “Competition Blend” pellets, but again, your favorite pellets or chips or wood can be substituted.
