  • 1 pkg (10 oz each) frozen 'steam in bag' broccoli cuts
  • 2 cans (15 oz each) Chef Boyardee® Mac & Cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped nacho jalapeño peppers
  • 1 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Steam broccoli in microwave according to package directions; let stand 3 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together mac & cheese, jalapeños, Pepper Jack cheese, Cheddar cheese and milk in large bowl just until combined. Stir in broccoli.
  3. Divide mac & cheese mixture between 6 individual round baking dishes. Beat together egg and water to make egg wash.

    Probably the best recipe I've ever had. From the farm-raised mac and cheese to the delightfully crisp puff pastry, this is a 10 star/2star dish. Pairs well with an ice cold beer.
