Prep
Cook
Serves 2people
Ingredients
350
ml full fat milk
1/2
onion, peeled and cut in half
1
bay leaf
175
macaroni
25
butter
25
plain flour
1/2
tsp english mustard
70
cheddar, grated
25
breadcrumbs
2
slices of bacon, chopped into small chunks
Directions
1.
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5.
2.
Fry the bacon in a frying pan until cooked and then put to one side to cool.
3.
In a small pan warm the milk, onion and bay leaf until almost boiling. Remove from the heat and allow to infuse for 10 minutes, then remove the bay leaf and onion.
4.
Meanwhile, cook the macaroni for about 8-10 minutes until just tender. Drain and run under cold water.
5.
Melt the butter in a separate pan and then add the flour, stirring for 1-2 minutes until a smooth paste has formed. Gradually add the warm milk to the paste, stirring until the milk has been absorbed. Keep going until all of the milk is absorbed. Simmer for 3-4 minutes until the sauce coats the back of a wooden spoon.
6.
Remove from the heat, stir in most of the cheese and the mustard and keep stirring until the cheese has melted.
7.
Add the pasta and bacon and stir well. Pour into an oven proof dish and the top with the rest of the cheese and the breadcrumbs (mix the together before putting them on to ensure that they form a crunchy cheesy topping).
8.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and then serve and enjoy!
