30 Mins


1/2 Pound Elbow Macaroni Noodles

2 Tablespoons Flour

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

2 Tablespoons Salted Butter

1 Cup Whole Milk

1/4 Cup Sour Cream

2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese

8 Ounces Jumbo Lump Crabmeat

8 Hot Dogs

8 Martin’s Long Potato Rolls

2 Teaspoons Old Bay

Serves: 8


Step 1

To make macaroni, start by cooking the noodles according to package directions – they typically take 5-7 minutes in boiling water. Be sure to add a 1/4 teaspoon salt to water used to boil the noodles. Drain and set aside when ready.

Step 2

To make the cheese sauce for the macaroni, start by mixing flour, salt, and garlic powder together in a small bowl. Set aside.

Step 3

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.

Step 4

Add flour mixture and whisk to combine. Cook for 1 minute until mixture is slightly brown.

Step 5

Add milk and whisk until the mixture is smooth.

Step 6

Add sour cream and whisk until smooth. Cook on medium-high heat until the mixture is thickened (about 3-5 minutes). Do not let it boil.

Step 7

Once mixture is thick, reduce heat to low and add cheese. Whisk until cheese is melted and mixture is smooth.

Step 8

Add cooked pasta and most of the crab meat to the pot of cheese and stir until sauce is evenly distributed. Set aside to cool.

Step 9

Cook hot dogs according to your preferred cooking method.

Step 10

Place each hot dog in a bun and top with mac and cheese, then add a few extra lumps of crab and garnish with old bay.
