Classic Mac and Cheese

After trying Red Head's Mac and Cheese a few months ago I've been really hankering for some more. I've made Mac and Cheese a few times and this is my go to recipe that really hits the spot.


350g dried Macaroni
250g Mature Cheddar, grated
500ml Whole Milk
50g Parmesan, grated
2 tbsp butter
1 Clove of Garlic, finely chopped
3 tbsp Plain Flour
1 tsp English Mustard Powder


Cook the macaroni in boiling water as directed on the packet.

In a saucepan melt the butter and add the garlic and mustard powder. Cook for 1 minute. Then stir in the flour and cook for another minute until it has formed a roux.

Add the milk a little at a time and keep stirring for around 5 minutes. Whisk the whole time until the sauce has thickened but is lump free.
Take off the heat and add the Cheddar and half the Parmesan and stir until it starts to melt. Have a little taste and season as needed.
Place the Mac and Cheese into an oven proof dish and bake for 30 minutes at 180Âșc until golden and bit crispy.
Serve the finished Mac and Cheese in a bowl and sprinkle the rest of the parmesan on top on top.
Enjoy with some warm bread like a Baguette or Ciabatta.

Well, that's all for now.


Pin me for later
