Lobster Macaroni and Cheese is my comforting and decadent way to celebrate my 3rd Blogiversary!
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Heavily salt the water and cook the pasta for 8-10 minutes until it is just shy of al dente. Drain well and set aside.
In a small saucepan, add the milk and bring to a slow simmer.
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Meanwhile, in a large pot, melt the butter and vegetable oil together over medium-low heat. Then sprinkle in the flour and whisk for about 2-3 minutes to allow the flour to cook. Whisk in the hot milk and continue to stir until the sauce thickens. Remove the pot from heat and add in the Gruyere, cheddar and fontina cheeses. Stir until the cheeses have melted and then add in the red pepper flakes, nutmeg, kosher salt and black pepper. Add in the pasta and lobster and stir until thoroughly combined.
Pour the mixture into a greased 9×9 inch baking dish. Sprinkle the top with panko breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Drizzle the olive oil over the top and bake in a 400 F oven for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chives over the baked dish.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
