Recipe From The Recipe Critic 


Step 1

Cook:  Cook the lobster according to your preference. I prefer to broil my lobster

Step 2

Prep: Heat oven to 400 degrees with the rack in the middle of the oven.

Step 3

Sauce: In a large saucepan over medium heat melt the butter. Add the flour to the melted butter and stir until thickened, about 3 minutes

Step 4

Whisk: Slowly whisk in milk a little at a time. The slower you add the milk the thicker the sauce will be.

Step 5

Stir: Add in 3 cups of the cheddar cheese, Gruyère cheese, and ½ cup of parmesan cheese into the sauce. Reserve 1 ½ cups cheddar and ½ cup Parmesan for the top.

Step 6

Spices: Add in the salt, pepper, garlic powder, mustard powder and nutmeg to the sauce, stir until combined.

Step 7

Mix: Stir together the cooked macaroni noodles, lobster and the sauce and transfer to a 9×13 baking, that has been prepped with cooking spray if needed.

Step 8

Top: Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake in the oven until golden and bubbling. 20-25 minutes

Step 9

Garnish: Top with flat leaf parsley if desired.
