How To Make Cheeseboard Mac & Cheese:

Preparation time:15 minutes
Cooking time:20 minutes
Total time:35 minutes

Serves: 6


  • 500g macaroni
  • 50g butter
  • 50g plain flour
  • 650ml milk
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 350g mixed cheeseboard cheese (Cheddar, Stilton, Brie etc), grated/thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Garlic & Rosemary Crust
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


1. Preheat the grill to hot. Bring a large pan of water to a rolling boil and cook the macaroni according to pack instructions. Drain and set aside.

2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add the flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually, add the milk a splash at a time, stirring continuously to avoid lumps until a smooth sauce has formed. Stir in the mustard and ¾ of the cheese. Then add the cooked macaroni and stir until coated.

3. Tip into a 2-litre ovenproof dish. Scatter with the remaining cheese followed by the garlic & rosemary crust, drizzle with olive oil and pop under the grill for 5 minutes until golden, bubbly and crisp on top. Serve with dressed salad leaves.
