Turkey and Ham Mac ‘n’ Cheese with Onion Marmalade

Turkey and Ham Mac ‘n’ Cheese with Onion Marmalade

375g macaroni

75g unsalted butter

75g plain flour

1 tsp mustard powder

900 – 950ml whole milk

350g extra mature cheddar cheese, grated

350 – 375g cooked turkey and ham [or all turkey] cubed or shredded

100g onion marmalade

Preheat oven 180C Fan. In a large pan cook macaroni as per packet instructions, until al dente. Drain then return to pan. In another pan melt the butter over a med heat add the flour and mustard powder, season and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring. Pour in the milk, a little at a time, stirring until smooth before adding more. You should end up with a smooth, creamy sauce and may not need any more milk. Stir 2/3 of the cheese into the sauce, until melted. Pour into the pan with the macaroni, add the meat and mix until the pasta is coated. Tip into a large, deep dish and spread out evenly. Dot with the onion marmalade, then scatter over the remaining cheese. Bake for about 35 – 40 mins, until bubbling and golden on top.

Use other cheeses in the recipe or a mixture. Coarsely grate or slice as needed.
