Greek Mac & Cheese

Mac & Cheese made better


A twist on an all-American favorite

  • 40 min
  • Serves 4
  • Easy




We put a little twist on an all-American favorite, mac and cheese, and we loved the results so we decided to share! We think you’ll enjoy this as much as we did! We used whole grain pasta for some added fiber and some wonderful Greek cheeses we bought at the local Greek market and added some grass fed ground lamb and made it a one pan meal. Great for these cold winter days!



Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.


Cook pasta in salted water according to package instructions. Drain.


While pasta is cooking, heat the milk in a saucepan until hot, do not boil.


In a large pan, sauté onion in olive oil until soft and translucent, about 5 - 6 minutes.


Add ground beef. Season with salt and pepper, and cook until browned.


Meanwhile, melt 6 tablespoons of butter in a large pot and add the flour. Cook over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes, whisking until mixture is well incorporated.


While whisking, add heated milk and cook until thickened and smooth. Remove from heat and add the grated cheeses. Add the ground black pepper and salt to taste. Add the cooked pasta and stir well. Pour into a lightly greased 3-quart baking dish.


Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Add bread crumbs and mix well. (You can use olive oil instead of butter to make the bread crumb topping).


Spread onto of sprinkle on the top of pasta. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbly and browned on the top.

Unquestionably imagine that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to
be on the internet the easiest thing to have in mind of.
I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as
folks think about concerns that they just do not realize about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side
effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back
to get more. Thank you

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could
add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite
some time and was hoping maybe you would have some
experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post
was great. I do not know who you are but certainly you’re going to a
famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours lately, yet I never
discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
It is beautiful worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did,
the web will probably be much more helpful than ever before.

Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand a lot about this, like you wrote the e-book in it or something.
I think that you simply can do with a few percent to pressure the message house a little bit, however instead
of that, that is wonderful blog. An excellent read.
I will certainly be back.

Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a
similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses?
If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise?

I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is
very much appreciated.
