Review of Homepride Smoky Mac and Cheese
Being the mac and cheese addicts that we are, we couldn’t pass by this Homepride Smoky Mac and Cheese pasta bake sauce without adding it to the trolly. How I wish we hadn’t.
As well as smoky there’s a spicy version. I fear how bland that tastes. I wasn’t expecting much for 2 for £2 or £1.80 each but maybe some cheese???
A look at the ingredients… 2% cheese 😭
To the cooking…
Quick and easy it says…
Preheat your oven (180°C/Gas Mark 4/Fan 160°C).
Cook 200g dry macaroni until soft then drain and transfer back into the pan.
Add the pouch of sauce, 50g grated mature cheddar cheese and 75ml semi-skimmed milk and stir until the pasta is coated well.(So basically make a sort of cheese sauce!!)
Transfer into a 1.5L shallow ovenproof dish and top with another 50g grated mature cheddar cheese. (Add more cheese as you sure as heck won’t taste any from the sachet)
Bake uncovered, for 25 minutes until bubbling and golden.
The Mac and cheese comes out of the oven looking OK, if a little greasy. We give it a go…
Hmm fake smoky plastic cheese flavour and smell….. my favourite. That greasy look…in the taste as well. Not impressed at all. Even with extra cheese, crispy onions and even a dash of hot sauce to give it some taste. A waste of calories.
