Pommies Mac & Cheese

Mac & Cheese with a side of cider. How can you go wrong? Enjoy these few easy steps to prepare a great dish for everyone to enjoy. Pommies may be added to the mac & cheese mix, but feel free to wash it down with one, too! Thank you to Tide & Thyme for the recipe (www.tideandthyme.com).

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

2.5 cups of macaroni (or other pasta)
1 cup of Pommies Dry Cider
1 cup of half & half
3 tablespoon of butter
3 tablespoon of all-purpose flour
1 Granny Smith apple (peeled, cored and diced)
1 small onion (diced)
16 ounces of white cheddar cheesed (shredded)

DIRECTIONS:

Bring pot of water to a boil. Add your pasta and cook for approximately 6 minutes. Drain and put pasta in a baking dish of your choice in size. Set the pasta aside.

To begin the sauce process, melt butter in a large saucepan on medium-high heat. Add diced onions and apples. Sautรฉ until onions are almost see-through (approximately 5-10 minutes). Scatter flour over the onions and cook for another 2 minutes. Mix the onions and apples continuously until the flour covers them entirely. Add Pommies Dry Cider and half & half to the onions and apples. Whisk constantly until it begins to bubble and thicken. Turn off heat and mix in 12 oz of shredded cheese (leave 4 oz for top layer), whisking until smooth.

Pour cheese sauce over the cooked pasta in the baking dish. Top it off with remaining shredded cheese.

Bake at 350ยฐF for 40 minutes or until the sides are bubbly and cheese is brown.
