Mac and Cheese

A few days ago my friends of  Le Creuset invited me to create three fabulous recipes to celebrate the Children’s monthhere in Mexico, I thought it would be the best to reinvent this classic dish, most of the children (big or small) love, macaroni and cheese. 

  The macaroni and cheese is an American dish that has captivated the hearts of many, today I give it a spin by adding a touch of depth in flavor with a little gruyere cheese, bacon (mouthwatering) and so that they eat more vegetables, a few pieces of broccoli, do not wrinkle your face as if this isn’t going to be good, this plant, even if somewhat despised by children, adds a unique flavor and becomes magical when you add the cheese sauce.

Mini mac and cheese
Thinking of the little ones of the house, mini macaroni with cheddar, gruyere, bacon and broccoli trees.

  • 350 grams of cooked short pasta 
  • 3/4 cup of whole milk 
  • 1/2 cup of cream 
  • 200 grs. of cheddar cheese 
  • 100 grs. of gruyere cheese 
  • salt and pepper to taste 
  • 90 grs. of crispy bacon 
  • Broccoli taste 
  • 1 teaspoon of chives

1. In a large saucepan place the milk and cream, cook it over medium heat until it boils. Add the cheese, season with salt (add pepper if you like) and mix until cheeses are well dissolved and cream is formed. 

2. Add the pasta, bacon, chives and broccoli, stir well until everything is covered with cheese sauce. 

3. Serve, garnished with a little more of bacon and some broccoli trees.
