The following sponsored post features a recipe created especially for our friends at Omaha Steaks. All content and opinions are mine.
When I think about these polish dogs, I hear Tim Allen with his manly grunt. I see the antithesis of the scantily clad models in those burger commercials and instead imagine Ryan Gosling, shirtless, eating this polish dog while the beer cheese mac and cheese rolls down his chin.
It’s all very exciting, really.
Beer Cheese Mac and Cheese Polish Dogs are really just about the manliest food you can think of. Here’s where I say forget manly, stereotyped food. Forget every idea that beer cheese is only for bro’s – let’s not forget us…never mind.
Ladies, let’s eat the dickens out of these polish dogs. The flavor explosions are of massive proportions – too big to limit the demographic to just men! We must take charge, order these impressively juicy polish dogs from Omaha Steaks, and prepare to have our minds blown by all the awesomeness.
We must stand up for all of womanhood by buying the beer and making the super simple beer cheese mac and cheese.
But most of all, ladies, we must top those phenomenal dogs with oodles of drippy, happy cheesy noodles and bite into that dog like our lives depended on it.
Because when it comes to ginormous polish dogs topped with inappropriate amounts of cheese, us ladies deserve to enjoy something so scrumptious.
- ½ lb. Elbow Macaroni
- 1 T Butter
- 2 T Butter
- 1 cup Heavy Cream
- 1 cup Heineken Beer
- 2 cups Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
- 1 cup Shredded Havarti Cheese
- ½ tsp Salt
- ¼ tsp Pepper
- ½ tsp Paprika
- ½ tsp Cumin
- 8 Omaha Steaks Polish Dogs
- 8 Hot Dog Buns
- Before getting started, set up all your ingredients so you can quickly go from step to step. It helps if the heavy cream and beer are measured off in separate glasses and allowed to come to room temperature.
- In a large stock pot, add 4 quarts of water and liberal amounts of salt. Bring water to a boil, then add pasta. Boil pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
- Meanwhile, in a large saucepan or high sided skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Sprinkle in flour and cook until the flour/butter mixture starts to bubble up and almost foam. Slowly add in heavy cream while whisking, until all the cream is added. Whisk in beer and bring to a slow simmer. Remove pan from heat and add the cheese. Whisk until all the cheese is melted, then add in the salt, pepper, paprika, and cumin. When all ingredients are incorporated, add macaroni.
- Next, fire up your grill pan or outdoor grill and get those good looking grill marks on your polish dogs.
- Place each dog in its own bun, then top with the beer cheese mac and cheese. Serve immediately with a stack of napkins and zero guilt.
