Unusually for us, we were out on both Friday and Saturday night this weekend which didn’t leave much time for weekend cooking. We had planned on cooking beef brisket today but a surfeit of cheese meant we opted for macaroni cheese instead.
I’ve only eaten it once before and was a bit underwhelmed but had high hopes for today’s dish since we had some really good cheese to add to the sauce: Stinking Bishop and Coolea. The sauce was indeed delicious but unfortunately, in my quest for a crunchy topping, I over-cooked the macaroni which meant the pasta was rather dried out. I should have put the whole thing under the grill to brown on top rather than leaving it in the oven.
We didn’t follow a recipe for this but cooked the macaroni as per the instructions on the packet and made up a white sauce at the same time. The cheese was stirred through the pasta, along with some oregano and then put into a dish with some more grated Cheddar on top and cooked for far too long.
