Gay Cook’s Macaroni and Cheese with Lobster

Gay-Cook1by Gay Cook

We are at the beginning of the spring lobster season from the East Coast. Lobsters are a real treat that can be enjoyed in a simple macaroni dish or grilled on the barbecue.

 

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 pound elbow macaroni
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg, thyme, cayenne, oregano, 1 pound coarsely chopped cooked lobster, shrimp, crawfish, or crabmeat, or a combination
  • 4 cups (1 pound) mixed grated cheeses, such as Parmesan, cheddar, Swiss, and fontina
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs

1. Preheat oven to 400. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook macaroni 2 minutes less than al dente. Drain; rinse with cold water. Set aside

2. While pasta is cooking, melt butter over medium in a large saucepan. Transfer 2 tablespoons melted butter to a medium bowl, and reserve. Add onion and garlic to pan; cook until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add flour; cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add milk; whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, and cook until sauce has thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with 3/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp, pepper and nutmeg

3.
Remove pan from heat. Fold in seafood, macaroni, and cheese; transfer to a shallow 4-quart baking dish. To bowl with reserved melted butter, add breadcrumbs and Creole seasoning; toss, and scatter over macaroni mixture. Place baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until topping is golden and sauce is bubbling, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
