Over Labor Day weekend we decided to use a smoker that we had purchase over a year ago. We smoked chicken and ribs, sausages and hotdogs. These were the best hotdogs I ever had. I had no idea how great hotdogs taste from being smoked. The chicken was tender and juicy and the ribs very tasty. My friends were impressed on how good everything tasted.
I decided to make some corn on the cob and Calvin had asked me to make some Lobster Mac and Cheese. Lobster Mac and Cheese is one of his favorite dishes. The first time he had it was at Chops Steak, Seafood and Bar. This place is amazing and they have some of the best steaks you will ever have. Their Lobster Mac and Cheese is to die for, super creamy and full of lobster chunks.
I didn’t grow up eating seafood, but through the years I’ve grown to like it. The first time I had lobster it was deep fried and it was actually really good. This Lobster Mac and Cheese is creamy and delicious. The lobster chunks gives it a unique taste.
If you love to eat lobster I’m sure you will appreciate this dish. The combination of cheese and lobster might seem a little odd, but once you taste it, it will become one of your favorite dishes too.
I used cheddar cheese, but you can use any other cheese you like. Top it off with some bread crumbs for a little crunch.
1 pound Penne Pasta cooked al-dente
1-1/2 pounds lobster meat cut into small pieces
2 cups whole milk
3 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
2-8 ounce bags cheddar cheese
1 cup bread crumbs
In a skillet on medium heat add the butter and flour whisking until well combine, cook for about a minute or so. Add the milk slowly whisking as you go. Continue to whisk until thick, making sure there are no lumps. Add 12 ounces of cheese and continue to whisk until cheese melts and becomes creamy. Add the lobster and combine well.
Add the pasta to a baking casserole and pour the cheese mixture over the top, mix really well. Finish with the 4 ounces of cheese and top with the bread crumbs. Bake in the oven for about 45-50 minutes at 375 degrees.
