My own Masterchef….

Zoe loves cooking – her dreams are to be a chef one day and I couldn’t get her away from Masterchef when it was on tv. She has all the terminology down to a tee and she is always asking if she can help me with dinner( I wish she loved washing dishes as much as cooking – Nah!!). Yesterday I let her cook the dinner – I just instructed her and she did it. It was something easy but a meal that always goes down well – macaroni cheese. Usually we make this with a cheese sauce, but yesterday we decided to do a baked macaroni with egg. This is what she did:

  • I packet macaroni (we used spirals)
  • Bacon – however much you like
  • 1 large red onion
  • 4 small eggs or 3 large ones
  • 3-4 cups of milk
  • Grated cheese
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper

Cook up your macaroni till al dente(not too soft). fry onion and bacon till nice and brown. Beat eggs and milk together and add salt and pepper. Place macaroni in oven dish , add bacon, onion and some cheese. Pour over egg mixture. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top and grated cheese. Bake in oven at 180 degrees till firm and brown on top. Oh so easy!! Serve with lashings of tomato sauce. Everybody enjoyed it – even the 4 year old asked for more!!
