With Superbowl just a few days away, here is a quick, easy and delicious recipe to feed the crowds. These mac 'n cheese bites are simply outstanding... crispy on the outside and sumptuous on the inside.
Ingredients
  • 60g Butter
  • 60ml All-purpose flour
  • 400ml Milk (full cream)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 175g Grated mature cheddar cheese
  • 240g Elbow macaroni
  • 12 Rashers streaky bacon
  • 2 Eggs
  • Finely shredded Parmesan cheese
Instructions
  1. To start, measure out the butter, all-purpose flour and milk, and boil the elbow macaroni according to the package instructions while reducing the cooking time by 2 minutes so that it is not quite cooked.
  2. Shred the mature cheddar cheese and beat the eggs.
  3. Heat a pan over medium high heat and add the butter. When the butter is melted and bubbling, add the flour. Stir this into the flour to get a smooth paste and allow this to cook for 60 seconds.
  4. Pour in the milk bit by bit, stirring continuously until all of the milk is added.
  5. Use a whisk to beat this to smooth sauce while it continues to cook.
  6. Once the sauce is smooth, turn off the heat and add the cheddar cheese and continue to stir until all of the cheese has melted into the sauce.
  7. Add the par-cooked macaroni and stir this in until everything is evenly coated.
  8. Add the egg and stir this in until completely combined.
  9. Season with salt and pepper and put this aside.
  10. Lightly oil a muffin pan and line the holes of the pan with streaky bacon.
  11. Divide the macaroni mixture equally among the 12 holes.
  12. Top each mac 'n cheese bite with finely shredded Parmesan cheese and bake the bites in a pre-heated oven at 180c or 350f for 20 minutes until crispy and golden on top.
  13. And there we have it.... an amazingly easy, quick and super-tasty Superbowl snack.
