This is my Mother's recipe that she's been using for years. It's my favorite way to make mac & cheese because it's nice and creamy, but also has some great crispy texture on top.

  • Portion size 6 servings
  • Credits : Michelle Howe


  • 2 cups macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 500 g creamed cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups old Cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs


1) Boil water, add macaroni for approximately 8 minutes, or until soft. Drain, and set aside. 2) Head 1/2 of the butter in a skillet, and saute the onions until soft. Stir in mustard, and worcestershire sauce, cook for 1 min. 3) Whisk in cottage cheese and milk into the skillet. Bring to boil, stir contstantly, until cheese melt slightly. Remove from heat, and gradually stir in cheddar cheese until melted. 4) In a casserole dish, toss the pasta with the cheese sauce. 5) Melt remaining butter and mix with bread crumbs. Sprinkle ontop of pasta. 6) Broil on middle rack for 4-5 min or until crumbs are toasted. Watch carefully not to burn.
