Mac and Cheese Pie



This is a great dish to make on those nights when you are wanting to make something quick and easy but something that the family will still enjoy.   Mac and Cheese pie fits the bill on all counts!


 Plus it is done in one dish, the mixing the baking, etc.   You don't have to cook the macaroni first.  Like magic it cooks in the casserole dish along with everything else.


I use my homemade baking mix for this.   I always have it in the cupboard.  You can find the recipe for that here.   Or you can just buy it ready made.   You could use Bisquick or Teabisk.  I just use my own homemade one though.



Once it is baked it cuts easily into squares (if you have baked it in a square dish) or wedges if you have baked it in a pie dish.


All you need on the side is some veg or a salad.  I like to serve it with meatloaf, or hot dogs.  You could also serve it with fish fingers or chicken nuggets, fingers, etc.  Kids love this.  Grownups do too.   Its really, really good.



*Mac and Cheese Pie*
Serves 6
Sort of like a crustless quiche made from macaroni and cheese. This is simple to make, quick and delicious.  I use my own homemade baking mix but you can certainly use a store branch such as Bisquick or another brand. 

245g of grated strong cheddar cheese (2 cups)
15g macaroni, uncooked (1 cup)
70g baking mix (1/2 cup)
530ml milk (2 1/4 cups)
1/4 tsp tabasco sauce
4 large free range eggs
salt and pepper to taste
30g additional grated cheddar cheese (1/4 cup)




Preheat the oven to 200*C/400*F/ gas mark 6.  Buter a 10 inch pie dish or an 8 inch square baking dish, or six custard cups. 


Mix the first amount of cheese with the macaroni.  Spread out in the prepared baking dish.    Combine the milk, tabasco sauce, eggs, baking mix and seasoning until well blended.  Pour over the macaroni in the dish.


Bake, uncovered for about 40 minutes.  A knife inserted near the centre should come out clean.   Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and bake for an additional several minutes until the cheese melts.  Let stand for 10 minutes before cuting ito squares or wedges to  serve.



This makes the perfect weeknight supper.  Your family will love it.    Bon appetit!

  1. Does this really call for 12 cups of cheddar cheese? I'm guessing a typo.
