SPINNEYFields Millionaire’s Mac ‘n’ Cheese Recipe
Recipe: Spinneyfields Millionaire’s Mac ‘n’ Cheese
300ml Béchamel (see ingredients and method)
200ml full fat Cream Cheese
1 tsp Salted Butter
2 cloves Garlic, chopped
1 Tsp Mustard Powder
200g Spinneyfields Mature White Cheddar
6 Slices maple cured Bacon, grilled until crispy
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
Ingredients for 500ml Béchamel:
500ml Whole milk
1 Onion, halved
1 Bay leaf
50g Plain flour
Method for the Béchamel
Gently bring the milk to the boil in a small saucepan with the onion, studded with the bay and cloves. Turn off the heat and leave to infuse for 20 mins.
Melt the butter in another saucepan, then add the flour. Stir continuously until a roux. Continue stirring for 2 mins.
Remove the onion, bay and cloves from the milk with a slotted spoon and discard. Add the infused milk to the roux gradually, stirring as you go, until you get a smooth sauce. Cook for 5-10 mins, stirring continuously, until the sauce has thickened. Season to taste.
Method for the Mac ‘n’ Cheese Recipe
Melt the butter in a pan. Add the garlic and mustard and cook for one minute. Add the Béchamel and cream cheese, reduce the heat, simmer for one minute. Stir in the cheese until melted.
Boil the pasta until al dente, drain and mix with the cheese sauce. Spoon half the mix into a baking dish, top with the crispy bacon broken into bits, drizzle over the maple syrup and then top with the rest of the mix.
Top with breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan, bake for 20 minutes until golden.
