Mac n’3 Cheeses

220 g elbow macaroni
1 tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, crushed
3 eggs
340 g evaporated milk
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
170 g grated mature Cheddar
50 g grated Gouda
30 g grated Parmesan

Preheat oven to 220C/gas 8. Cook the macaroni for 6 minutes in a large pot of salted boiling water, then drain

Meanwhile, heat a small frying pan and melt the butter. Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds. With a slotted spoon, remove the garlic to a medium bowl and add the macaroni, stir to combine. Whisk together the eggs and evaporated milk. Add a good pinch of salt, the cayenne pepper and cheeses; and mix well. Add the macaroni mixture and mix thoroughly.

Transfer the whole lot to an overproof dish. Gently spread mixture to form an even layer and sprinkle a little extra grated cheddar and parmesan on the top. Bake just until sauce bubbles at edges, about 12-15 minutes. If you want to add a bit of crunch you can throw on some breadcrumbs before putting in the oven. Also this is a great base recipe to add bacon or mushrooms or any herbs you like to the mix before baking.
