Fancy Mac & Cheese

Now this is a mac cheese with a twist – using EASIYO yogurt instead of milk gives great flavour and texture and the onion and mustard means it's no longer a meal you will want to roll out just for the kids. Perfect for a winter's lunch or evening meal.

Tips with Butter

Unsalted butter in your baking is the best way to start. If you feel it needs a pinch of salt, you can add it later.


3 tbsp Westgold butter
2 tbsp flour
2 cups EASIYO yogurt
1 tsp salt
Ground black pepper
2 cups tasty cheese, grated
2 tbsp grated onion
1 ½ tsp dijon mustard
250g macaroni, cooked and drained
2 tbsp Westgold butter (extra)
½ cup fresh breadcrumbs


Melt the butter in a saucepan then cool. Mix flour and yogurt together and add to the butter. Season with salt and pepper and stir over a low heat until thick.

Add the cheese and onion, then pour into a buttered casserole dish. Melt the extra 2 tablespoons of butter and stir in the breadcrumbs until covered with butter. Sprinkle on top of the macaroni and bake for 10 minutes at 180°c.

Remove from oven and enjoy.
