    Cheeseboard mac & cheese recipe | Waitrose

    Use up all those lovely leftovers from the Christmas cheeseboard in this hearty supper

    • Christmas
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes

    Serves: 6


    500g macaroni
    50g butter
    50g plain flour
    650ml milk
    2 tbsp Dijon mustard
    350g mixed cheeseboard cheese (Cheddar, Stilton, Brie etc), grated/thinly sliced
    3 tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Garlic & Rosemary Crust
    2 tbsp olive oil


    1. Preheat the grill to hot. Bring a large pan of water to a rolling boil and cook the macaroni according to pack instructions. Drain and set aside.

    2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add the flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually, add the milk a splash at a time, stirring continuously to avoid lumps until a smooth sauce has formed. Stir in the mustard and ¾ of the cheese. Then add the cooked macaroni and stir until coated.

    3. Tip into a 2-litre ovenproof dish. Scatter with the remaining cheese followed by the garlic & rosemary crust, drizzle with olive oil and pop under the grill for 5 minutes until golden, bubbly and crisp on top. Serve with dressed salad leaves.
