A simple dinner recipe for Macaroni and Cheese, with bacon and a delicious crunchy topping.
80g plain flour
1 litre full cream milk, warmed
1 1/2 cups mature white cheddar, grated
NoMU Sea Salt
1 cup bacon, diced
1 tbsp butter
1 cup freshly made breadcrumbs
500g macaroni noodles
NoMU One for All Grinder
Preheat your oven to 180C and lightly butter 6 small or 1 large casserole dish.
To make the cheese sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan, whisk in the flour and cook for a few minutes to cook the flour, stirring constantly.
Gradually whisk in the heated milk until smooth, then stir with a wooden spoon until
bubbling and thick.
Add 1 cup of the grated cheese and stir until melted. Season well.
Fry the diced bacon until nice and crispy. Melt the extra tablespoon of butter and drizzle it over the breadcrumbs.
Season with One for All Grinder and toss to coat.
In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook your macaroni noodles until al dente. As you are going to heat them again, they must still have some bite in the middle. Drain in a colander and rinse in cold water.
Drain very well and then stir into the cheese sauce along with the bacon.
Spoon into the prepared dishes. Top with the remaining grated cheese, followed by the breadcrumbs and bake for 20-25 minutes until brown and crispy on top.
