Mac N Cheese



Mac N Cheese

Ultimate comfort food, Mac and Cheese is a big bowl of yum I think. Perfect on this cold rainy Tuesday. Delicious enjoyed on its own as an easy lunch and perfect food for Bubba who could eat the whole saucepan.
I know there are lots of variations and Mac and Cheese can be spiced up with bacon, tomatoes, chillies and different types of cheeses but this is a great base recipe below for you guys to add your own twist too. My favourite is topping it with parmesan, breadcrumbs and crispy bacon bits.

Ingredients

200g Macaroni
35g Butter
25g Plain Flour
450ml Whole Milk
50g Cheese
Salt and Pepper
Breadcrumbs and Parmesan

Equipment

Saucepan
Deep Baking Tray

Method

1.Heat a large pan of boiling water and cook macaroni pasta according to instructions

2.In another large saucepan melt the butter and whisk in the plain flour, I think whisking is key here rather than stirring to avoid lumps

3.Slowly the add the milk, continuously stirring and the cheese

4.Drain macaroni, add to the cheese sauce base until mixed together and season

5.Place in baking tray and top with breadcrumbs and parmesan for a crunchy topping
