Cooking Something New: Mac n Cheese

Mac n cheese is a staple meal in many
family homes and student dorms. Something that everyone has eaten at least once. I love Mac n Cheese but have never ever made it from scratch. Tonight I decided to give it a go.


Macaroni pasta
55g Butter
30g Flour
475ml Milk
225g grated cheddar cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste.


Cook macaroni pasta according to packaging. Drain and leave to one side.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter on a medium heat. Once butter has fully melted, slowly add the flour, salt and pepper and mix continuously until you have a smooth paste. Slowly add milk and stir continuously until smooth and bubbling. Approximately 5 minutes. Add the cheese in parts and mix until completely smooth. Fold in the macaroni until fully covered. Serve and enjoy!

My experience:

Believe it or not but this SIMPLE recipe took me THREE attempts to make. Why? Because the flour and butter doesn't actually make a smooth paste as the instructions implied. Instead it all just clumped together. After the third attempt I gave up and just added the milk and it smoothed out perfectly. Adding the cheese thickened it up and my sauce turned out perfectly!

Overall the dinner looks like a sloppy creamy white mess but it taste pretty damn good. Proud of myself for nailing a family favourite on my first attempt!

Until next time,
