Just a few days ago I posted my Crock Pot French Dips in my 7 Quart Cast Aluminum All-Clad slow cooker (I’m pretty much obsessed with this, BTW). So good…such a fantastic weeknight dinner. I had enough leftovers for lunch the next day and STILL had more.
It was sooo good I couldn’t let it go to waste.
So, what does one do with leftover slow cooked French Dip beef? One makes French Dip Mac ‘n Cheese. Then pours it over crispy french fries, of course.
I made the mac and cheese, stirred in the beef and then I added just enough of the au jus to completely moisten it and give it a good French Dip taste. I promise you, I was not out to create a crazy dish designed to make everyone obese.
Don’t forget the bacon on top. It just really rounds the whole gluttonous/sinful/beautiful mess out.
I think next time I’m gonna dip them in Ranch dressing. I know, it’s adding gluttony to gluttony. But if I’m going as far as making French Dip macaroni and cheese covered french fries, why not dip them in Ranch?
A spicy ranch would be good, too. However, they’re absolutely off the charts delicious without them, so I’m good without anything.
Please forgive the terribly manicured nails; that’s nothing new and probably will never change.

p.s. Aren’t you surprised I didn’t add jalapenos?
p.s.s. Wait, why didn’t I?
