I believe I've mentioned in my last Mac n' Cheese post that I have been on a mission to create the most perfect Mac n' Cheese. I have made several and they are certainly delicious and different every time. This one is definitely going on my list of tip top Mac n' Cheese.
50g plain flour
3 1/2 cup (900ml) milk
1/2 tsp mustard powder
3/4 cup mature cheddar
3/4 cup Bavarian smoked cheese
3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
- Cook pasta al dente in a pot of salted water
- Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan , stir in the flour and cook on low-medium for about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and gradually stir in the milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat again and stir in the smoked cheese and continue to stir until the sauce thickens. Season with salt and pepper, a pinch of nutmeg and stir in the mustard powder.
- Drain your pasta and mix together with the sauce and 3/4 of the cheddar in a casserole dish. Top with the remaining cheddar then the breadcrumbs.
- Place under the grill for a few minutes until golden brown
This is definitely not the first entry of Mac n' Cheese for Presto Pasta Nights but it is also definitely not the last! So many people love this dish and this particular version should surely be shared!!
