Macaroni Cheese

Macaroni Cheese

Nothing beats home made Macaroni Cheese. Takes a little longer but is so much nice than anything out of a packet. 
  • Pre cook about 300 grams of a macaroni. 
  • While this is happening melt about 80 grams of butter in a pan and gently fry off until softened a finely diced onion... then add 3 tablespoons of plain flour and cook for a minute (make sure you do this step or the end product will taste floury)... gradually add two cups of milk stirring all the time so you don't get lumps and then bring this up to the boil and simmer gently for a couple of minutes until thickened and then remove it from the heat.
  • Stir into the thickened sauce about 200 grams of your favourite grated tasty cheese and a couple of teaspoons of wholegrain mustard, salt & pepper to taste.
  • Finally add your cooked pasta pop it in a casserole dish, sprinkle the top with some freshly made bread wholegrain bread crumbs and a little more grated cheese and  then bake it in a 180 oven until bubbly, golden and delicious.
