Macaroni egg & broccoli cheese

Ingredients

  • 225g/8oz macaroni
  • 175g/6oz broccoli florets
  • 6 large British Lion eggs
  • 450ml/3/4pt milk
  • 50g/2oz butter
  • 45g/3 tbsp plain flour
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 175g/6oz cheddar cheese, grated

Method

  1. Cook the macaroni in a large pan of salted water for 6mins. Add the broccoli, return to the boil and simmer for a further 6mins or until the pasta and broccoli are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, place the eggs in a medium pan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 7mins. Drain the eggs, then rinse in cold water. Tap the shells all over and peel away. Cut the eggs into large chunks.
  3. Place the milk, butter and flour together in a medium pan. Gently heat, stirring with a wire whisk until the mixture boils and thickens. Reduce the heat and cook for 1min. Season to taste and stir in half the cheese.
  4. Drain the pasta and broccoli, then stir into the cheese sauce. Spoon into a heatproof dish, scatter over the remaining cheese and pop under a hot grill. Cook for 3-4mins or until the top is golden and bubbling. Serve immediately.
