Big Joe Shares Mrs. M’s Lobster Mac & Cheese [Recipe]
This past Thursday was Round 2 of the New Jersey 101.5 Cook Off between Big Joe and Dennis. Here's Big Joe's recipe for Mrs. M's Lobster Mac & Cheese which he served up for the appetizer portion. This incredibly rich and creamy Lobster Mac & Cheese is the perfect starter for any meal, but be warned, you're not going to want to share it.
1 lb Velveeta
1/2 lb cream cheese
2 cups heavy cream
1 stick of unsalted butter
Salt & pepper
1 lb of pasta (cooked al dente)
2 cups bread crumbs
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 lb lobster meat cooked and chopped.
How to put it together:
Place all cheeses, cream, and butter in a large bowl and set it over a hot water bath. Gently stir the cheese mixture until well combined and creamy. Strain through a sieve and taste for seasoning. Add salt and pepper if needed.
Add the cooked pasta and lobster to the cheese and mix. Place the mixture in a buttered casserole dish, top with cheddar cheese and bread crumbs and dot with a few tablespoons of butter.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes and then serve immediately.
