This mac and cheese recipe stands above the crowd not because it uses fancy cheese (I'm looking at you gruyere) or bacon, but because it is topped with Banh Mi ingredients. Compiled by The Vulgar Chef, this dish combines Vietnamese with classic continental cuisine.
After the blogger received an accidental extra order of Banh Mi at a restaurant, he decided to dismantle the "meat toboggan" and add the ingredients on top of cheesy macaroni to create an entirely new mac and cheese recipe.
This method is definitely worth trying at home. You could also experiment with other sandwiches, like a burrito. The Vulgar Chef recommends other toppings such as taquitos and a fried egg or with jalapenos, hot fries and beef jerky.
