Lobster Mac n’ Cheese

Lobster Mac n’ Cheese

THE ULTIMATE INDULGENCE.. the absolute epitome of comfort food.  Chunks of lobster meat in a velvety, creamy three-cheese sauce mixed with macaroni then baked to perfection with an oozing crispy golden crumb topping—pure decadence.

There are many variations to this dish… I’ve spiced it up with garlic, onion powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, and mustard, but you could tone down the spices or add more of what you prefer.   I also used Oat cream and Oat milk to keep it on the lighter side; it made no difference to the creaminess because of the amount of cheese; however, you could use double cream and whole milk if you prefer.  If you like, you could add a dash of white wine when sautéing the garlic and if you prefer a stronger cheese, add some Gruyere to the mix.
