Recipe: Macaroni with ham and cheese

I’ve been thinking for a while that I should add a recipe category to this blog. Because us writers are all busy people, and we don’t like spending long times in the kitchen making fiddly things. We want receipes that taste great and don’t require a lot of effort and time to make.

If you have such a recipe, feel free to DM me on Twitter and I can add it here.

I’ll start off with a recipe my mother used to make. I have no idea where it came from, and I have never seen a written version of it. The quantities are quite flexible, and depend on how many people you want to feed.

Cook enough macaroni for everyone (I use about 300g).
Grate about 200g of cheddar cheese
Cut 250g of shaved ham into pieces
Put macaroni in dish. Add ham and most of the cheese. Add two tablespoons of tomato sauce (aka ketchup) and pepper. Mix well. Spread remaining cheese on top and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Bake in oven at 170C for about 20 minutes or until the top is brown.


  1. I know what twitter is, but I’ve never gone there. What’s DM?

  2. Direct Message. Twitter is introducing a whole lot of new acronyms and abbreviations – twitspeak LOL. Also feel free to leave comments here or send a message via LJ.
