Indulgent Mac & Cheese Recipe

Deciding on the best combination of cheese for our indulgent Mac & Cheese recipe was a great source of debate in our team - there are sooo many great ones to choose from! We settled on the complex flavours of Westcombe Cheddar, combined with the creamy, silken melting qualities of Ogleshield (raclette-style cheese) - grating half of the Ogleshield into the sauce and slicing the other half, with its rind left on for a deliciously golden topping.

We stirred in 2 spoonfuls of our Minced Black Truffles for an additional dose of comfort! Follow our recipe below for the ultimate, indulgent Mac & Cheese...

Ingredients

(Serves 4 as a main course and 6 with other accompaniments)

Method

  • Pre-heat your oven to 180°C (365°F).

  • Slice half of your Ogleshield, or Raclette (keeping the rind on) into 0.5cm thick slices which will fit on top of your dish. 

  • Grate the remaining Ogleshield or Raclette and all of the Westcombe Cheddar and set aside for the sauce.
     
  • Cook your Macaroni pasta in boiling water for approx. 6 minutes (or 2 minutes less than your packet requires).

  • Melt your butter in the pan, remove from the heat and stir in the flour. 

  • Place the pan back on the heat and gradually add your milk and cream - stiring all the time until you have added all of the liquid and your sauce begins to thicken. 

  • Add the grated Westcombe and Ogleshield or Raclette cheese to the pan and stir until melted. 

  • Stir in your 2 tsp of Minced Black Truffles (optional).

  • Combine your cooked pasta with your sauce and pour into an oven-proof dish.
     
  • Arrange your sliced Raclette on top of your cheesy mixture and place into your pre-heated oven.

  • Cook for approximately 15 minutes - or until the top is golden brown and bubbling. 
     
  • Enjoy with a fresh salad to balance the rich cheese flavours.
