Lobster Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

Ingredients for 2 large portions:

  • 2 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 lobster tails (5-6 oz each)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups cold milk
  • cayenne to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • pinch ground nutmeg
  • few drops Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 ounces grated sharp white cheddar cheese (about 1 generous packed cup)
  • 1 ounce grated Gruyere cheese (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 generous cup elbow macaroni (1 cup, plus a tablespoon or so)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

*Note: Like I said in video, make sure your mac and cheese mixture is wet and saucy in the pan, otherwise it might get dry when it bakes. Don’t be afraid to add a splash of the pasta water to loosen things up.

For the crumbs:

  • 3 tablespoons panko breadcrumbs
    1 tablespoon melted butter, or enough to moisten
    2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano Reggiano
    – Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes, or until browned
