Posh Macaroni Cheese

So, what makes this posh? Well, how about a sourdough crumb and a truffle and gruyere sauce! Oh yeahhhhh!

Serves 2 main meal/4 as a side

10 Minutes Preperation

30 Minutes Cooking


200g Macaroni Cheese

1tbs Butter

1tbs Olive Oil with Truffle

1 Garlic Clove

2tbs Flour

500ml Milk

50g Gruyere

30g Cheddar


Sourdough Crumbs


- Preheat the oven to 180c/350f.

- Bring a pan to the boil and cook the macaroni. You want it to cook a little less than normal, so it has a little bite to it as it will continue to cook in the oven.

- Whilst the pasta cooks, in a separate pan melt the butter and add the truffle infused olive oil.

- Add the garlic and cook for a minute.

- Add the flour and whisk together. Cook for a couple of minutes to cook out the flour taste.

- Pour in half of the milk and stir. Then once it begins to thicken, add the remaining milk.

- Grate the cheese.

- Season with S&P and add the cheese and stir.

- Drain the pasta and add to the sauce.

- Pour into an ovenproof dish and top with the sourdough crumbs.

- Bake for 20 minutes then ENJOY!
