Who does not love thinking back to the childhood days of the blue box mac 'n cheese. Yeah, we all did it. Heck, I used to even put hotdogs in my mac 'n cheese. Well, I then proceeded to learn what exactly goes into the quoted 'Blue Box' and learned quickly that cheese does not actually come as dried powder. Yet, I felt the strange need to retain my childhood through the consumption of delicious and cheesy mac. However, we will be swapping the blue box for some fresh cheddar and the hot dogs for lobster. This is our way of still being a child at heart but getting to eat like a king!



Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and begin boiling a large pot of water on the stove. Add in the olive oil and some salt to get aid the pasta. Add in the noodles when the water is boiling and make Al Dente (they will cook a bit more in the oven too, so a little firm is what we want).


Melt the butter in a large pot and add in the flour, whisking vigorously. After about 2 minutes, add in your milk and continue to whisk until the sauce is creamy. Remember, do not let the butter burn or the milk boil!

Melting Butter

Take the sauce off the heat source and sprinkle in the cheeses, SLOWLY, only adding in more as the sauce thickens and the cheese melts into it. If you do it too fast, it gets hard to make the sauce creamy. Add in the lobster meat, pepper, and cooked noodles as well and stir into one big mixture.

In a large pyrex dish, or several individual gratin dishes, pour the pasta in and spread neatly. Crush up the potato chips finely and sprinkle on top of the mac.

Mac Mix

Bake the mac 'n cheese for 25-30 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling, browning, and you seriously can not wait ANY longer to dive straight into this amazing dish. However, before diving in, please let it cool for at least 5-10 minutes. Seriously, it's super hot in there.
