Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 6
  • ½ Stick / ¼ Cup / 60g Butter
  • ¼ Cup / 30g Flour
  • 4 Cups | 1 Litre Milk
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 9oz / 2 Cups / 250g Chedder Cheese
  • 9oz / 2 Cups / 250g Mozzarella
  • 1lb / 500g Pasta
  • ¼ Cup Bread Crumbs
  1. Place a saucepan of water over high heat, season with salt, and bring to the boil.
  2. Place the butter in a medium sized saucepan and place over medium heat. When the butter has melted add in the flour and cook for a few minutes, stirring.
  3. Gradually add the milk, a small amount at a time, and stir well until fully incorporated. Cook over medium low heat for about 5 minutes.
  4. Cook the pasta in the boiling water for 2 minutes less than the package directions.
  5. Remove the sauce from the heat and add the salt, nutmeg and dijon. Slowly add the cheese, reserving a third of the mozzarella for topping the mac and cheese.
  6. Drain the pasta and pour in the cheese sauce. Mix to combine and pour into an oven dish. Top with the bread crumbs and remaining cheese.
  7. Place the mac and cheese into a 180/350 oven for 20-30 minutes or until bubbling and browned.
Crispy bacon pieces, sun dried tomatoes, or jalapeños can all be added to the mac and cheese.
Other cheeses can be substituted, just make sure to have a flavourful cheese and one that is best for melting.
