Macaroni pie is a side dish that goes well with stewed chicken, callalloo or any stewed peas like pigeon peas or lentils. It can also be enjoyed on its own.

Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  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 evenly on top.
  5. Bake at 175°C (350°F) until firm (about 30 minutes). A fork or metal skewer should come out dry when you press it all the way through the pie.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • 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.
  • Usually best when the surface has browned to an even colour.
