World's Best Mac & Cheese


World's Best Mac & Cheese 


ingredients:

  • 225g of macaroni (2 cups)
  • 2 TBS butter
  • 1 1/2 TBS plain flour
  • 240ml hot chicken broth (1 cup)
  • 120ml  milk (1/2 cup)
  • 60g  shredded Gruyere cheese (1/2 cup)
  • 60g  shredded red Leicester cheese (1/2 cup)
  • 60g cup shredded strong cheddar cheese (1/2 cup)
  • 3 TBS freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • a dash of Tabasco sauce
For topping:
  • a bit of Parmesan, Cheddar, Gruyere and red Leicester cheese grated and mixed together with a few bread crumbs

instructions:


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200*C/400*F. Lightly butter a large shallow casserole dish and set aside.
  2. Grate all your cheeses and mix them together in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Bring a large pot of slightly salted water to the boil and add the macaroni. Cook according to the package directions, draining it while it is still a tad bit undercooked. Drain it well and rise with cold water. Set aside.
  4. Make the sauce by melting the butter over medium heat in a heavy saucepan. Stir in the flour, mixing well and allow to cook for about a minute. Add the chicken broth, whisking it in vigorously until the mixture is thickened and smooth. Whisk in the milk. Heat thoroughly. Stir in 1/2 of the cheese mixture until it is well melted and amalgamated. Season to taste with black pepper and tabasco sauce.
  5. Place about 1/3 of the cooked macaroni in the buttered dish. Pour over 1/3 of the cheese sauce. Sprinkle on 1/2 of the reserved cheese. Repeat layering until you finish up with the final 1/3 of the cheese sauce. Sprinkle the top with a final layer of the cheese bits mixed with the bread crumbs.
  6. Bake in the heated oven until nicely browned and bubbling. Remove from the oven and enjoy!

NOTES:

If you can't get Red Leicester cheese, just use cheddar in its place. Gruyere can be substituted with Swiss cheese. Place your baking dish on a baking tray as it can bubble over.
