Omnia Oven Recipe - Macaroni Cheese
Homemade macaroni cheese is one of those meals that always puts a smile on the face of whoever you are making it for. It's simply delicious and once you have tasted a homemade macaroni cheese recipe you will never look back at a supermarket boxed variety.
Our Omnia Oven recipe for macaroni cheese has a few extra additions to make the sauce super tasty - mustard, marmite and yeast flakes. We also add panko breadcrumbs and pumpkin seeds to the top which gives it a lovely crunchiness.
The great thing about this Omnia Oven recipe is it actually tastes and cooks better in an Omnia Oven than in a standard at home oven. I made it in a house recently and it wasn't nearly as good! We like a slightly crispy base which the Omnia Oven does perfectly.
Campervan Cooking with an Omnia Stove Top Oven
We cook and bake all our cakes and all our food which needs oven cooking in an Omnia Oven. It’s a fantastic bit of kit that allows you to oven cook on the stove so you don’t have to have a built in oven.
To see some of our favourite bakes and cooking recipes that we have used the Omnia Oven for see our blogs here:
For the purposes of this blog we will provide the recipe and method for baking the macaroni cheese in an Omnia Oven, however, if you have a built in oven the same principles apply - just use an oven proof dish instead of the Omnia tin.
Vegan Macaroni Cheese Option
As with all our recipes we will be giving the option to make the macaroni cheese vegan. It's very easy to do by making sure your stock cupboard items like breadcrumbs and mustard are vegan. The only extras you will need are vegan cheese and vegan creme fraiche.
How to Make Macaroni Cheese in an Omnia Oven
- 150g macaroni
- 1 vegetable stock cube
- 10ml truffle oil
- 120g grated cheese (or vegan cheese - we tend to use a cheddar variety)
- 30g panko breadcrumbs
- 2 tsp English mustard
- 200g creme fraiche (or vegan crème fraiche)
- 1 tbs Marmite
- 1 tbs B12 Yeast flakes
- Handful of pumpkin seeds
1. Place macaroni in a saucepan and cover in cold water with approx 1” water overlap
2. Boil until almost all the water has been absorbed
3. Add in the stock cube to the remaining water in the pan and mix
4. Add in crème fraiche, cheese, mustard, marmite and yeast flakes and give it a good stir until combined.
5. Add macaroni mixture to the Omnia Oven (ideally use a liner as it saves cleaning!)
6. Sprinkle the panko breadcrumbs and pumpkin seeds over the top.
7. Place on the hob on a medium heat for approx. 20-25 mins (depending on if you like a crispy base!)
8. Drizzle truffle oil over the top and serve.
