    • 255g macaroni
    • 40g butter
    • 150g flour
    • 280ml whole milk
    • 480g Coastal Cheddar grated
    • 30g breadcrumbs
    • salt & pepper to taste
    • add onions & bacon if desired


    1. Heat oven to 190C
    2. Cook the macaroni in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 8-10 minutes; drain well and set aside.
    3. Melt the butter over a medium heat in a saucepan slightly larger than that used for the macaroni. Add the flour and stir to form a roux, cooking for a few minutes.
    4. Gradually whisk in the milk, a little at a time. Cook for 10-15 minutes to a thickened and smooth sauce.
    5. Remove the sauce from the stove top, add 370g of Coastal cheese and stir until the cheese is well combined and melted.
    6. Add the macaroni to the sauce and mix well. Transfer to a deep 9x9 glass pan and sprinkle over remaining cheese and breadcrumbs.
    7. Place in the oven and cook until cheese is bubbling; approx 20 mins. Serve immediately
