Yummy Mac N Cheese

Published Wednesday, 29 October, 2008 by Kirsty

A cheap staple of a student diet, great for using up slightly stale bread



  • bread (slightly stale is best) or bread crumbs
  • Cheese
  • Plain flour
  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Pasta shapes
  • Mustard (optional)
  • You could throw in a little ham or bacon if desired. I always make more then I need because it keeps for awhile in the fridge or freezer


1. Cook pasta to packet instructions, drain and then put in the bottom of a oven proof dish

2. Tear/ grate the bread until they are crumbs

3. Melt some butter in the pan and then place the breadcrumbs in with it. Coat thoroughly and remove from heat.

4. Melt some more butter in a pan and then add flour until it forms a dough, cook for about 2 minutes (it is best to do this at a low heat)

5. Add milk in steady and slow stages until the sauce is at the texture you want (you can add mustard at this point if you wish).

6. Stir in the cheese until it has melted and remove pan from the heat.

7. Pour sauce over the pasta and then scatter the breadcrumbs on top

8. Bake in the oven until the breadcrumbs are crispy (20- 30 minutes is normally about right)
