Macaroni Cheese

Posted By Kerri


I’ve never had macaroni cheese before so thought it would be interesting to give it a go given that I love pasta and I love cheese. We used a Nigel Slater recipe from Kitchen Diaries (I love this book but haven’t cooked from it before) that included Dijon and wholegrain mustard and had a breadcrumb topping. I enjoyed it but not as much as I thought it would. Stephen said the breadcrumbs were unnecessary so if we do it again we’ll leave those out. I’m not sure about the Dijon either as it gave the dish a slightly vinegary taste.

    The shaved Parmesan on top makes it look rather like a bird’s nest. Next time I think melted cheese would be good. And less Dijon mustard too. Kerri mentioned adding bacon, which would be good!

  2. The bread crumbs sound interesting – did they give it extra crunch? I normally do Delia’s souffle version which is ever so tasty and I can heartily recommend it. And a Swedish version of it would also have diced sausage mixed in with the macaroni.

    Oooh the Delia one looks good. I think the nutmeg would work well.
