Macaroni Pie – This side dish goes well with stewed chicken, callalloo or any stewed peas like pigeon peas or lentils, but can also be enjoyed on its own.

Ingredients[edit]

Serves 4.

Procedure[edit]

  1. Boil macaroni in salted water until tender; drain.
  2. Beat eggs until fluffy.
  3. Combine macaroni, eggs, cheese, milk, onion, carrot, salt, white pepper, mustard and butter.
  4. Pour into a greased baking dish and sprinkle shredded cheese and bread crumbs or panko bread crumbs on top of macaroni to cover it evenly.
  5. Bake at 175°C (350°F) until firm (approx. 30 minutes). A fork or metal skewer should come out dry when you press it all the way through the pie.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit]

  • Macaroni pie can be enhanced further by adding ingredients such as tomato, chopped herbs, minced beef or roasted onions. Also try using a few varieties of cheese together.
  • Use your imagination.
  • Usually best when the surface has browned to an even colour.
  • Some people sprinkle breadcrumbs on the surface prior to baking.
