Recipe: Macaroni Cheese


  • 1 cup of macaroni pasta
  • 2 tablespoons of plain all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of mustard powder
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • 3/4 cup of cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 eggs, hard-boiled and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup of butter


  1. Heat a large saucepan of salted water and bring to a boil. Add the macaroni pasta and cook for 12 minutes, or until al dente. Drain well.
  2. Heat the butter in a large saucepan. When the butter starts to sizzle and foam stir in the flour and mustard, stirring constantly for 2 minutes, until the mixture begins to bubble.
  3. Remove from the heat and gradually stir in the milk. Bring back to a boil and stir the sauce until it thickens.
  4. Add the cheese and keep stirring the mixture until melted and you can no longer see any cheese.
  5. Add the cooked macaroni, eggs and fresh parsley. Sprinkle a little extra cheese over the top if desired.
  6. Place the mixture in an oven dish and bake in a moderate heated oven for about 20 minutes, until lightly browned. All the cheese should be all melted on top.
