My Posh Macaroni Cheese

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for my posh macaroni cheese. It is my normal macaroni cheese recipe but with a few added extras. These extras make this a posh macaroni cheese, in my opinion.

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Butter

2. Plain Flour
3. Vegetable Oil
4. Milk
5. Cheese
6. Salt and Pepper
7. Dried Macaroni Shells
8. Spring Onions
9. Sundried Tomatoes
10. Cooked Lamb Sausage
11. Breadcrumbs
12. Cheese

To make my basic cheese sauce, melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan.

Once the butter has melted, add 3 tablespoons of plain flour.

Cook the flour and butter together for a few minutes, whilst constantly stirring. If the flour starts to stick, add a drop of vegetable oil.

Let the flour and butter become a smooth paste and start to bubble.

Next, add a few drops of milk at a time, constantly stirring to combine.

Continue adding milk until you fill about half the pan.

Slice 3 ounces of Cheddar cheese.

Add the cheese to the white sauce, and stir to allow to thicken.

Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Turn off the heat, and your cheese sauce is ready!

The next ingredient is dried macaroni shells.

Cook the macaroni according to the packet instructions.

 Now for the extras, soften 8 chopped spring onions. You could add these raw, but I like them cooked.

Next, take 2 tablespoons of chopped sundried tomatoes.

 And finally, take 2 lamb sausages, sliced into pieces. If you don't have lamb sausage, you can leave it out or put in any other leftover meat.

 To assemble, take a large ovenproof dish, and spread out the cooked macaroni.

 Add the lamb sausage, spring onions and sundried tomatoes, and stir to evenly.

 Pour in all the cheese sauce.

 Stir to combine.

 For the topping, take 6 ounces breadcrumbs.

And 6 ounces of grated cheese.

 Sprinkle the top with the breadcrumbs and cheese.

 Bake in the oven at Gas Mark 4 for 30 minutes.

Serve piping hot on a cold winters night!
