Macaroni Pie – This side dish goes well with stewed chicken, callalloo or any stewed peas like pigeon peas or lentils, but can also be enjoyed on its own.

IngredientsEdit

Serves 4.

ProcedureEdit

  1. Boil macaroni in salted water until tender; drain.
  2. Beat eggs until fluffy.
  3. Combine macaroni, eggs, cheese, milk, onion, carrot, salt, white pepper, mustard and butter.
  4. Pour into a greased baking dish and sprinkle shredded cheese and bread crumbs or panko bread crumbs on top of macaroni to cover it evenly.
  5. Bake at 175°C (350°F) until firm (approx. 30 minutes). A fork or metal skewer should come out dry when you press it all the way through the pie.

Notes, tips, and variationsEdit

  • Macaroni pie can be enhanced further by adding ingredients such as tomato, chopped herbs, minced beef or roasted onions. Also try using a few varieties of cheese together.
  • Use your imagination.
  • Usually best when the surface has browned to an even colour.
  • Some people sprinkle breadcrumbs on the surface prior to baking.
