How to Make Macaroni Cheese - Ireland Style

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook the macaroni in a saucepan of boiling salted water as per pack instructions, strain and set aside. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. In a separate large saucepan, melt the butter over a medium heat and add the flour(3 to 4 tablespoons, depending on how thick you like your sauce) to form a roux, stir using a wooden spoon and allow to cook for 4 – 5 minutes. Add a little of the cream and milk at a time, stirring continuously until you achieve a thickened, smooth sauce.
  3. Remove the sauce from the hob and add in 200g/7 oz cheese and stir until the cheese is well combined. Stir in the macaroni and season with some salt and pepper. Transfer to a deep ovenproof dish.
