What's in my Fridge: Jalapeño Popper Mac & Cheese | Basics with Babish

  • Published on Jan 12, 2022
  • This week, we're doing something a little crazy. If you're taking the time to read the video description, hell I'll just be real with you: I've been in a creative slump the past few months, and since making some work-life changes, have been feeling a ton of new energy. Yesterday I had a wild hair up my ass and I realized that even though we had no Basics shot for today, I was hell-bent on getting one done anyway. So we decided to improvise, and what resulted was a lovely creative exercise in resourcefulness, one that kept me glued to my edit suite until 2AM like I was back in film school. I hope you find it a little entertaining, a little fun, a little both - thank you for watching, because not only was it fun for all of us to make, it gave me some space to feel like myself again.

    I would love to see you guys continue this idea, but with your friends' fridges. It would be interesting if they weren't in the food content business

    "Bumbling with Babish" is a series that needs to continue.

    Please, more of this. It’s all to relatable for a lot of people.

    I hope this inspires a series! I love recipes that are thrown together with leftover ingredients

    This was great! I usually find I’m lacking ingredients, so more “what’s in the fridge”s would be awesome!

    It's strangely reassuring to see that even professionals can have science projects in the forgotten corners of their fridges.

    This is real cooking, not having anything but still slapping something delicious together😂👌

    Honestly, I love this idea.

    A seasoning basics would be cool. Making different mixes that can pair with several dishes or proteins with various cultural cuisine themes. And how much is the average pinch of salt? Test everyone’s “pinch volume” in the babish kitchen and maybe some other Flash-Player friends too. I know season to taste is the way to go… but, content

    For the record, he's totally right about American singles. Don't use them for the "flavor." But they're kind of magical when tossed into a savory sauce, like for noodles, or soups and stews. They add a little creaminess, while also encouraging everything to bind together.

    A last minute put together episode still comes out as a better quality video then most cooking channels on Flash-Player

    This is a fun idea. Can't wait to see more!

    Immediately into this idea. As a person who watches and follows lots of recipe videos I'm not very practiced at "improvisational" and "use up what's left" cooking, so it would be super cool to see more examples of that

    I do love these behind the scenes bits, also makes for an easier to replicate recipe for most home cooks.

    Big fan of this episode, I've always wondered what a series of this kind would look like. Once a month mish mash of previous episodes leftovers made into something yummy. Hope you make another one!

    Honestly, this is one of the best basics episodes because it shows that you can make something cool out of whatever you have laying around and you don't have to do a "recipe." You can just make it up as you go along and end up at a satisfying destination.
