Home made steak and macaroni pie

If you follow me on Instagram than you know I occasionally post the meals I chef up at home. Often I get questions on how to make a dish but one specific post caught a lot of attention and interest. I made a steak dinner with a side of macaroni pie and to my surprise everyone wanted some or guidance on how to prepare the pie.

I gladly put together the recipe for those interested in this easy but delicious dish called the Macaroni Pie. Cheesy, moist and oh so delicious! It can be served as a side dish to replace your regular rice or potatoes. However nothing is wrong if you still want to include your usual side dish but be aware the macaroni pie is extremely filling!

Ready in

55 Minutes

Serves:

6-12 People

Calories:

650

ingredients:

Elbow Macaroni (900 g)
2 Eggs
Mozzarella & Cheddar cheese, grated
Diced up Onions
2 Cups of Cream
2-3 Teaspoons of Salt
2 Teaspoons of Butter

Preparation:

  • Chop up the onions into very fine dices or grate them to avoid feeling texture in pie.
  • Grate a block of mozzarella & cheddar cheese, or buy the bag with cheese already grated (We use black diamond brand).
  • Beat eggs together and leave aside in a bowl

Cooking:

  • Boil water and add butter and salt. Add macaroni when water comes to a boil. When tender(about 15 minutes- 20 minutes boiling), drain. While macaroni is boiling, proceed to the next steps.
  • On the side, mix the two eggs together until you get a fluffy texture.
  • Cut up onions in small small squares, making them almost liquid. This is to prevent feeling the onion texture in the pie when you chew but still provides the flavour. If you don’t mind crunching down on onion when you consume your pie, you don’t have to cut it that small. You can also use a grater to grate onion into a bowl.
  • Grate the mozzarella and cheddar cheese together in a bowl. To save time you can purchase mozzarella and cheddar cheese already grated in a bag together. How much cheese you use is entirely up to you based on how cheesy you want it. I use one block of each cheese or two bags of already grated cheese.
  • With macaroni drained and in pot, combine eggs, onions, cream, butter and cheese. Gradually keep adding cheese while you mix and melt the cheese.
  • Pour mixed ingredients in a greased baking dish, sprinkle more cheese on the top and bake at 360 degrees F. Until firm. About 30 Minutes.
  • Allow pie to cool down and set for ablest 30 minutes. Cutting it while it is too hot will cause the pie to fall sloppily and loose the “pie” form.
  • ENJOY!

Tips:

You can sprinkle the top with breadcrumbs to add a “crunchy” texture to your pie.

Any left overs can be stored (simply put foil paper over dish and put in fridge) and saved for the next day, it taste just as delicious re heated!

Allow to cool down completely before putting in fridge for another day.

Would not recommend eating after more than 48 hours in fridge.
