Carb Explosion: Eat Mac ‘N’ Cheese in a Bread Cone

Mac 'n' Cheese in a Bread Cone

Mac ‘n’ cheese could be one of the world’s most perfect foods, except for one major flaw: You can’t really eat it on the go. Well, that was a major flaw.

Behold the mac ‘n’ cheese bread cone, a special menu item that was served at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida. For anyone who loved carbs, cheese and crumbly bacon, this was the ultimate guilty pleasure. And, did we mention that it all comes stuffed inside a giant edible cone?

While this menu item, and its companion the Fiesta Chili-Cheese Bread Cone, were short-lived at the Orlando theme park, bread cones are still available at Disney’s California Adventure in Los Angeles.

The Disney Food Blog, which reviewed these ginormous bread holders, notes that they are actually served in a medium fountain drink cup for easy transport around the park.

If a trip to Disney isn’t in your future, you can recreate this carb explosion in your kitchen with homemade bread dough or store-bought pizza dough, according to blog Home Cooking in Montana.

The trick is to roll a simple paper cone, cover it completely with aluminum foil, and wind the dough around the cone in a spiral. Then, all that’s left to do is bake it and stuff it. (If cheesy pasta is too carb-heavy for you, fill it with scrambled eggs and veggies for a quick, portable breakfast.)

So, the only question left is which mac ‘n’ cheese recipe to make? May we suggest Alton Brown's Baked Macaroni and Cheese and Sharon Osbourne's Mustardy Mac 'n' Cheese , which pair perfectly with a sweet-salty bread cone.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
