Lobster

There are several different variations when cooking lobster. If you love to grill, this method is for you!


• Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
• Butterfly the tail by cutting down the center.
• Add lobster tails to your grill and cook evenly on each side.

 

Mac & Cheese


• Boil uncooked pasta.
• Heat oven to 400 degrees.
• Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add flour and stir until thickened.
• Slowly whisk in milk.  The slower you add the milk the thicker the sauce will be.
• Stir in 3 cups of cheddar cheese, gruyere cheese, and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese into the sauce. Reserve 1 cups cheddar and 1/2 cup parmesan for the top.
• Add salt and pepper.• Stir together the cooked pasta, lobster and the sauce and transfer to a cast iron baking dish.
• Sprinkle with remaining cheese and breadcrumbs. Bake until golden and bubbling (20-25 minutes).
