Disney is famous for its semi-sneaky quips that kids generally won't catch but make for great easter eggs for parents. One of my favorites is from Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast as he belts about the magical menu: "Try the grey stuff—it's delicious!"


Well, now we can. Chefs at Disney Parks have created a smaller, make-at-home version of the Grey Stuff found at the Be Our Guest restaurant at Disneyland.

And guess what... It's delicious.
