Disney Reveals the Recipe for the Famous 'Grey Stuff' from Beauty and the Beast
The grey stuff is one of the staples in Beauty and the Beast — remember the lyrics from "Be Our Guest"?
"Be our guest
Be our guest
Put our service to the test
Tie your napkin 'round your neck, cherie
And we provide the rest
Soup du jour
Hot hors d'oeuvres
Why, we only live to serve
Try the grey stuff, it's delicious
Don't believe me? Ask the dishes."
So what even is the grey stuff? Well, the chefs at Disney were tasked with bringing this delightful dessert to life at the Red Rose Tavern in Disneyland and at Be Our Guest restaurant in Walt Disney World.
Basically, it is a sweet mixture of crumbled cookies and cream cookies vanilla pudding and whipped cream, and it is served on top of a scalloped cookie. The simple treat is *chefs kiss*.
The best part of the grey stuff? It only takes 15 minutes to make. Disney created a cute video tutorial or you can check out the recipe below to stir up a little bit of magic at home!
