Nothing tastes better than comfort food if you miss your loved ones. Especially I will be away in Bangkok on business for 6 weeks tomorrow; though I get to come home during the weekends. Unfortunately this time the need to travel for business makes me miss my family the most as I have not been traveling for close to 9 months.

My daughters Grace, Faith and Glad made the unanimous decision of eating macaroni and cheese. Caleb just a year over has no objections either. I adapted the recipe from Aun's website http://chubbyhubby.net/blog/?p=489 to include hotdogs and ham to make the yummy dish more child friendly.

Serves 6

Ingredients:
400g macaroni
850ml milk
600ml chicken broth
1.5 teaspoons salt
50 g butter
2 teaspoons flour
120g buffalo mozzarella, diced
120g emmental, diced
120g mimolette, diced
120g gruyere, diced
200g turkey ham sliced
400g cocktail gourmet hotdogs sliced in 3 equal pieces length wise

For topping:
30g shredded mozzarella
30g shredded cheddar


    1.Pour the milk into a large pot and combine with the chicken broth. Add salt and bring the liquid to a simmer. Add the macaroni and cook until just a bit soft.
    2.Be careful not to let the liquid boil over. Drain the macaroni using a sieve, reserving the liquid.
    3.Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
    4.Using the same large pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Take the pot off the heat and add the flour, stirring quickly until combined
    5.Put the pot back over the fire and slowly add the reserved liquid, stirring constantly. Stir until the sauce begins to simmer and thicken a little.
    6.All the buffalo mozzarella, emmental, mimolette, and gruyere cheese to the sauce, stirring slowly until all the cheeses have melted.
    7.Add the macaroni and turkey ham to the sauce, stirring. Cook for a minute.
    8.Transfer to an ovenproof dish. Cover with the hot dogs and then with shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese.
    9.Pop the dish into the oven for 30 minutes. Serve immediately.

Just double-checking, is mimolette a type of cheese?
