Garlic Mac N Cheese




30 mins


40 mins


500g dry pasta

2/3 cup panko breadcrumbs

¼ cup + 1 ½ Tbsp butter

4 garlic cloves crushed

¼ cup plain flour

4 ½ Maxigenes Full Cream Milk Powder premade divided

1 Tbsp chicken stock powder

¾ cup grated cheddar cheese

1 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided

6 ounces mozzarella cheese, sliced


Cook pasta according to packet instructions, drain, rinse and set aside.

Preheat oven grill to 190 degrees Celsius.

For the crispy topping melt 2 tablespoons of butter on stove top. Add the panko breadcrumbs, stir to coat and cook until golden brown. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Melt ¼ cup of butter in a pan. Add the garlic and sauté for about 1 minute. Whisk the flour, continue whisking for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low and gradually add milk whilst whisking ¼ cup at a time. Bring to boil until sauce begins to thicken.

In a jug combine corn-starch and remaining ½ cup milk, whisking until lump free and stir into sauce until thickened.

Add stock powder, salt and pepper to taste.

Remove sauce from heat and add in the cheddar, ¾ cup of parmesan cheese and mozzarella slices. Stir through until the cheese has melted. Toss pasta through until well coated.

Top with breadcrumb mixture and remaining parmesan cheese.

Grill in oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until bubbling.
