Studd Sibling Wanderlust Mac ‘n’ Cheese

The Siblings may or may not use three cheeses in the most scrumptious of memorable mac and cheeses you will ever have!



Prep Time:


Cook Time:






  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the pasta and stir until water has returned to the boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook pasta at a fast simmer for 8 minutes.
  3. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat without browning. Add flour and stir well to incorporate. Reduce heat and cook the roux for 2–3 minutes, stirring often. Raise heat under roux and add 1 ladle of hot milk. Whisk in well, and then continue to add milk, one ladle at a time, until it’s all incorporated.
  4. Add mustard, leeks and tomatoes, reduce heat and cook for 3–4 minutes, stirring often. Remove from the heat, add the cheddar and comte along with the basil and stir well until melted. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  5. Pour sauce over macaroni and stir to combine. Sprinkle panko and grated kefalotyri evenly over, then pop in the oven and bake until golden (10-12 minutes). Finish, briefly, under a hot grill to crisp the panko flakes and cheese (3-5 minutes).

Serve hot.
