Lobster Mac and Cheese

What could be more decadent than lobster in good old mac and cheese? Grana Padano and two different types of Cheddar already make this a mac and cheese to die for, but the addition of lobster just puts it over the top. This is definitely a mac and cheese adults won't want to miss.

Ingredients

  • 8  Tablespoons  unsalted butter
  • 8  Tablespoons  all-purpose flour
  • 8  Cups  milk or heavy cream, warmed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4  Cups  lobster stock*
  • 1  Cup  grated Grana Padano, plus more for the casserole
  • 1  Cup  grated white Cheddar, plus more for the casserole
  • 1  Cup  grated yellow Cheddar, plus more for the casserole
  • 1  Cup  lobster meat
  • 1  Pound  cooked macaroni

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then stir in the flour to make a paste. Once it bubbles, whisk in the milk or heavy cream until all the lumps are gone and it has a creamy texture. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for a few minutes. Reduce slightly if necessary reach a creamy consistency. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Add in the grated cheeses about 1 cup at a time to make a cream sauce. Then, add in the lobster stock bit by bit, until you have a creamy lobster sauce. (You may want to use less than the full 4 cups depending on the thickness of your sauce.)

Now fold in the lobster meat. Add the pasta last, fully folding in to combine. Fill a large casserole pan with the mixture, cover with additional cheese, and bake for 25 minutes.

Lobster Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
