Chef Tyler Florence may be feeding mac 'n' cheese to your town

 

Fall is upon us -- there's a chill in the air, football season is in full force and folks are craving hearty meals to fill them up and keep them warm.

Food Network host and chef Tyler Florence is combining all of the above. Florence has teamed up with STOUFFER'S and will be driving a Mac 'n' Cheese truck to high schools all over the country to serve up comfort classics at Friday night football games.

"I'm really excited about that because STOUFFER'S is actually going to make a charitable donation to the high schools," said Florence. "We're going to be serving up mac 'n' cheese and have a good time."

Along with the Mac 'n' Cheese truck, Florence has also concocted some interesting new ideas for incorporating the cheesy favorite into traditional dishes, like Mac and Cheese Shepard's Pie.

"[It's] a Shephard's Pie, but instead of using mashed potatoes, put the mac and cheese on top and pop it under the broiler," said Florence.

Florence also has a new spin on Chicken Noodle Soup.

"Instead of adding noodles to the soup, you put macaroni and cheese down at the bottom, so you kind of scoop into it with the broth," said Florence. "I think it's a really delicious thing."
