Mac ‘n’ cheese cubes

These are so wrong that they are totally right….


  • 25g butter
  • 25g plain flour
  • 250ml whole milk
  • Large pinch of salt
  • 100g grated strong hard cheese
  • To assemble:
  • 200g macaroni pasta


Place the butter in a sauce pan and melt.
Once it is bubbling, add the plain flour and salt and cook on medium heat for 2 minutes.
Take off the heat and gradually stir in the milk.
Pop back on the heat and keep stirring until little sauce has thickened, add the cheese and melt, leave to one side.
Cook your pasta and combine with the sauce.
Pour into a baking dish.
Once cooled, place in the fridge to set – ideally overnight.
Preheat 5-6 inches of oil in a tall pan to 190C.
Cut the mac ‘n’ cheese into cubes and deep fry – a few at a time until golden brown and piping hot (2-3 minutes).
Remove with a slotted spoon and place on kitchen paper to drain off any excess oil.
