19 February 2022 — Dinner

black treacle cured ham mac n cheese


100g Black Treacle Ham (such as The Jolly Hog Black Treacle Ham)

1 pack of Rigatoni (or macaroni)

1 large block of Cheddar such as Somerset Organic Cheddar

2 tbsp butter

330ml milk

2 tbsp Tracklements Smooth Dijon Mustard

2 1/2 tbsp plain flour

How to make it

Bittersweet black treacle cured ham paired with creamy and crumbly Somerset Organic Cheddar makes this Mac ‘n’ Cheese recipe a cut above the rest. Smooth Dijon Mustard adds tangy and spicy flavour to every bite.

  • Begin by boiling your pasta according to pack instructions until it is al dente
  • Grate the Somerset Organic Cheddar into a bowl
  • Add the butter into a saucepan on medium heat
  • Add the flour and stir with a whisk or fork until it forms a paste
  • Reduce the heat to low and stir in your milk, a small amount at a time
  • Add the grated cheese in and continue to stir until all the cheese is in. The sauce will soon thicken into a proper sauce
  • Once it’s thickened, add Tracklements Smooth Dijon Mustard
  • Drain your pasta then spread it across an oven-proof tray. Pour the cheesy sauce on top of your pasta, making sure it’s all equally covered
  • Cook in the oven for about 20 mins on 200°C fan/ 220°C oven. Remove from the oven, tear up the black treacle cured ham into thick pieces and sprinkle on top of the mac and cheese. Return to the oven for a further 5 minutes
  • Remove from the oven once the cheese and ham has begun to crisp and wait 10 minutes before serving
