Mac and Cheese

I saw this recipe on Not Quite Nigella
and it looks super good! haha
and I’ve been wanting to make mac and cheese from scratch for the longest time
so tonight was the night! hehe

and it turned out really well!
really yummy
and I’m glad the boys enjoyed it. hehe
it was creamy
and the bacon just really flavoured the dish
and i added chicken breast to increase the protein of the dish
of else baby won’t have enough hehe

absolutely love how it turned out.
and I really enjoyed cooking it.
it was easy and only needed 10 mins in the oven
after everything was prepared and done.

Recipe :

500g macaroni (use any kind u like)
3 rashers of bacon, cut into cubes
200g chicken breast, diced
2 small brown onions
1 1/2 cup of cream
1 1/4 cup of milk (i use light milk)
2 cups of cheddar (and extra to top it)
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Steps :

1. Preheat oven at 180 degrees celcius.
Cook the macaroni according to the instructions with plenty of salted-water
until al-dente. Careful not to cook till it gets too soft, or it will turn mushy after.
Place it into the baking dish

2. Fry the onion till it’s soft, not brown.
Add the bacon and cook for about 5 mins and add the chicken breast.

3. Add the cream, milk and nutmeg and wait till it comes to a boil.
Reduce the heat till it simmers, add the cheese.
Stir till all the cheese has melted.

4. Pour the cream mixture over the macaroni
and sprinkle it with extra cheese.

5. Put it into the oven and bake it for 10 mins.
Then turn it to the top grill
to brown the top of the dish.

6. Serve when it’s HOT! (:

i made not one but two haha.
