Mac & Cheese - with Frankfurters(Chicken Sausages)!!!!

Hi guys!!!

Mac & Cheese is a very popular dish in the US. I have always wanted to try it at home and with the variety of cream cheeses available here it was indeed a piece-of-cake to prepare. I try different versions of pasta at home and picked up a pack of macaroni long back and left it in the pantry. I finally prepared this easy version of mac and cheese a few weeks back.The recipe is very simple 'coz most of the work is done by the oven :-)

Lets see the recipe.


Macaroni - 2 cups
Philadelphia cream cheese - 200 gms
Milk - 1/4 cup (approx)
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Frankfurters(Chicken sausages) - 5
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Breadcrumbs - 2 tbsp (optinal)
Cheddar cheese - 1/4 cup (optional)


1. Cook the macaroni as per package instructions. Strain the water and set aside.
2. Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a baking dish or pyrex bowl and keep it ready.
3. Mix the cream cheese, milk, salt and pepper in a separate dish. Heat the oil in a pan and shallow fry the sausages and keep them ready too.
4. Add the cooked sausages to the cheese mixture. Finally add the cooked macaroni to this and transfer the whole content to the baking dish.
5. Grate the cheddar on the top and toss the breadcrumbs too. This is totally optional. Pop the dish onto the oven and cook for 15 minutes.

Serve hot with just ketchup or plainly as it is!!!
