There are few comfort foods as universally loved as mac and cheese. This rich and creamy variation features biltong and caramelised onion for a distinctly South African flavour.

Preparation time


Caramelised Onion:
30 ml olive oil
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
5 ml Robertsons crushed garlic
10 ml Robertsons thyme
15 ml brown sugar
30 ml balsamic vinegar
Cheese Sauce:
60 ml butter
60 ml flour
250 ml cream
250 ml milk
5 ml Robertsons paprika
300 ml grated cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
200 g biltong thinly sliced
400 g macaroni, cooked al dente
2 feta wheels, crumbled
fresh thyme to garnish
Moist biltong slices to garnish

Preparation method

Preheat the oven to 200°C and grease a medium sized oven-proof dish.
To make the caramelised onions heat the olive oil in a saucepan on medium heat and add the sliced onion. Sauté for about 5 minutes. Add the Robertsons Crushed Garlic, Robertsons Thyme, brown sugar and balsamic vinegar. Cook for another 10 minutes on low heat until the onions have caramelised. Season with salt.
To make the cheese sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan on a medium heat and add the flour. Cook for 2 minutes, remove from the heat and stir in the cream, milk, Robertsons Paprika, salt and pepper. Return to the heat and stir until the sauce is thick, smooth and starting to boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese.
Mix the cooked macaroni, cheese sauce, biltong and half of the caramelised onion together in your prepared oven-proof dish. Top with the remaining caramelised onion and crumbled feta to form a crust. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Garnish with fresh thyme and moist biltong slices.
