Lobster Macaroni and Cheese



Yesterday I guest posted over on Cafe Terra. I shared one of my husbands top 5 meals.

I've never made my own Lobster Mac,  in fact I have never made anything with lobster before.

I mean I've purchased lobster. Quite often actually. I bring it home for Hubs to boil and he eats it for a special meal from time to time. But I won't touch them!



There is something so evil about cooking lobster. You take it out of it's bag, it looks at you starts flapping it's little legs and claws, then you dunk it into a pot of boiling water?




Yeah I'm ashamed.

But I did it, though I don't think I will ever cook one again. I really dislike the little creatures but even still I don't have the heart to boil them alive.

My husband was very proud of me when he came home and saw that I cooked it.

I left it on a plate on the table ready to go for HIM to remove the meat. That's a job I definitely couldn't do!!! So he removed all the meat and I mixed it into this super rich and creamy macaroni I had made, topped it with a butter bread crumb topping and baked it.

He was in heaven, with every bite. It was one of the best things I had made him he said.

  6. Carrie, I am so impressed. Most people would figure a way around cooking a lobster...using canned or imitation or whatever that was already prepared. I'm psyched to see you actually cooked a lobster for this delicious dish. I love mac n cheese and lobster, but have never tried them together...sound creamy and amazing!

  7. Yeah....I don't think I could do that! And since the hubs and I aren't huge seafood eaters...I probably won't ever have to! But I am WAY impressed that you did it:-)

  9. You're bravely combining two of my favorite ingredients together - and the result looks amazing. I know some crazy chefs claim you shouldn't mix seafood and cheese, but clearly they've never seen this! I am featuring this post in today's Friday Food Fetish roundup (with a link-back and attribution), but please let me know if you have any objections. It's always a pleasure to be following your creations…

  10. I have been craving lobster! We were supposed to travel to Maine for vacation this year so I could enjoy some fresh lobster but I don't think my little ones would tolerate an 11 hour car ride so we are vacationing closer. In the meantime I can get my lobster fix by whipping up your fantastic Lobster Mac and Cheese! Looks fabulous! Great job!

  14. Hello there! I just ate an amazing lobster mac and cheese for my five year anniversary dinner. Spectacular - though it feels horrible knowing those poor guys are alive seconds before they get dropped in the boiling water :(
