Most of the time I'll be posting fairly healthy recipes, but there is an exception to every rule, and all things in moderation right :-). Its also cold out and this weather warrants comfort food! Lobster Mac & Cheese is a great way to show your valentine they are loved not to mention a great way to support your local lobstermen :-) (shameless plug ). This is using my grandmother's classic baked mac & cheese recipe; hope you like it!
Lobster Mac & Cheese
2 cups macaroni
4 cups whole milk
1 stick butter
8 oz container of Old English Cheese (substitute 10oz of shredded extra sharp white cheese if you can't find it or don't want to use it)
1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
a rounded tsp yellow mustard
salt & pepper (to taste)
12 oz sharp cheddar cheese
3 Tbsp cornstarch
1/2cup of seasoned breadcrumbs
4-5 1.25lb lobsters cooked and picked (or 3/4-1lb of fresh picked lobster meat)
***Note that if your little valentines don't care for lobster meat, remember to set aside a smaller baking dish for regular mac & cheese for them. Or you can get a little creative and bake a few muffin tins of mac & cheese (heart shaped for the holiday would be mighty cute). Those will likely only need 20 minutes (ish) total or until they're cooked through.
Yum!! What comfort foods are you cooking up??
