There is nothing greater in the morning than a slice or two of toasted homemade bread...or is there? We have taken your ordinary slice of toast to a whole new level with this super gooey, indulgent mac 'n' cheese on toast recipe. This a perfect weekend brunch recipe that you will want to try again and again. 

For your toast try our classic white bread recipe.


  1. Begin by boiling a large pan of salted water for your pasta. 

  2. In a seperate saucepan heat your butter on a low temperature then gradually add your flour. Stir continuously slowly increasing the heat until you form a paste (roux)

    • 50g Butter
    • 45g Plain White Flour
  3. Preheat your oven to 220ºC/425ºF/Gas Mark 7.

  4. Add the macaroni to the boiling water and cook for the time specified on your pasta pack. Once the pasta is fully cooked, drain and add to the saucepan with your sauce in it. 

    • 500g Dried Macaroni Pasta
  5. Turn the heat off of the saucepan and stir in the pasta and teaspoon of mustard so that it is fully coated in the sauce. Add the grated cheeses and continue to stir until the cheese begins to melt and become stringy. A wetter consistency is better for your sauce at this stage as it will thicken when baked so a splash of milk if needed can help loosen.

    • 1 tsp Mustard
    • 150g Mature Cheddar Cheese
    • 100g Parmesan Cheese (grated)
  6. Pour your pasta and sauce into a ceramic dish and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. 

  7. When the pasta is almost baked, begin to slice and toast your bread under a grill. If you like you can butter then insides of the toast and once the pasta is done, spoon generous helpings on to your toast, sandwiching two slices together. For an extra cheesey indulgence you can also add some fresh chunks of mozzarella cheese on top for that gooey stringy effect when you slice and seperate the pieces of toast.

    Is this freezable? as this says it serves 16...rather a lot for just 1.


    Hi David,

    Thank you for your question - we recommend that you freeze the bread and macaroni cheese individually. You could portion the macaroni cheese and store in airtight containers and then you can use what you need when you need it.

    We hope that helps.

    Happy Baking
