Lobster Mac and Cheese


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.

  • 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


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.
