Makes 4 toasties.

Prep time: 10

Cooking time: 30

Serves: 4

ingredients

1 Simon Howie Haggis

White sourdough or crusty white bread

100g cheddar cheese, grated

Butter, to spread

 

For the Macaroni Cheese

50g butter

250g macaroni pasta

35g plain flour

500ml milk

150g cheddar cheese, grated

100g gruyere cheese, grated

25g parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper

Method

1. To make the macaroni, boil the pasta for suggested time on the packet.

2. Meanwhile, make the cheese sauce by melting butter in a pan and add the flour when the butter starts to bubble. Stir continuously on a medium heat for a few minutes to cook out the flour. Very gradually add the milk, stirring constantly allowing it to be completely incorporated before adding more. When all the milk is added, simmer sauce for approx. 5 mins until thickened then remove from the heat, add in the grated cheeses and stir.

3. Drain the cooked pasta, add to the cheese sauce and set aside.

4. Cook the haggis as per packet instructions. Microwaving is the quickest option, but don’t mash it right down – leave in slightly larger chunks. Once cooked, add the haggis to the macaroni cheese.

5. Take 8 slices of bread and butter the outside of each.

6. Place two slices of bread at a time in a frying pan, buttered side down. Top one with a layer of grated cheddar cheese, add ¼ of the macaroni cheese and haggis on top of the other slice and and fry on a medium heat.

7. When the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted, put the cheesey lid on the toastie and remove from the pan.

8. Serve and enjoy while hot and melty!
