Are you in search of a hearty and cheesy dish that will hit all the right taste buds? Look no further than this Caribbean-style Baked Mac & Cheese recipe that is sure to satisfy any craving for comfort food.
To start, preheat your oven to 350°F. In a large pot, cook 1 pound of elbow macaroni to your desired level of doneness and set it aside.
Next, chop up ½ cup of onions and peppers and sauté them in butter until they’re softened. Add in ½ cup of flour and continue to stir until it forms a smooth paste. Then, slowly pour 3 cups of milk into the pot while continuing to stir.
Once the mixture has thickened up, you can pour in 3 cups of grated cheese, such as Gruyere, Cheddar, or Gouda. Mix until the cheese is melted and turn off the heat.
In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 eggs and 1 cup of evaporated milk. Add this mixture to the pot of cheese sauce and stir it well. Finally, you can add in your cooked macaroni and mix everything together.
Pour the mac and cheese mixture into a baking dish and spread it out evenly. Top it off with 1 cup of breadcrumbs and sprinkle on some paprika, if desired. Bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until the mixture is bubbly and the breadcrumbs are browned.
Serve this delicious Baked Mac & Cheese alongside some Caribbean-style dishes such as jerk chicken or fried plantains. This recipe is perfect for any occasion and is sure to be a hit with all who try it.
