You can always go right with mac and cheese. The combination of perfectly cooked al dente pasta and a creamy cheese sauce is a match made in heaven that's always a crowd-pleaser. But why not take it up a level? This recipe for OHOW's Favorite Lobster Mac and Cheese recipes relates to classic mac and cheese by adding a tasty seafood twist.

Simple yet gorgeous seafood mac and cheese elevate a typical pasta dish! While this classic baked lobster mac and cheese flavor is rich, any home chef can create it with ease. Rich gouda cheese and creamy cheese sauce are combined in a lobster mac and cheese dish. Use a jalapeño cheese sauce that goes great with rich lobster meat if you want to give it a little extra oomph. Top with buttery panko breadcrumbs and baked to golden-brown perfection, our lobster mac, and cheese Gordon Ramsay recipe is excellent as a potluck side dish or the main dish at your next dinner get-together.

Origin of Mac & Cheese

It should come as no surprise that the concept of a pasta and cheese dish originated in Italy. What may come as a surprise is that the British created the first authentic macaroni and cheese dish. It was published in the 1770 book The Experienced English Housekeeper by Elizabeth Raffald. Her recipe called for a cheddar cheese sauce to be combined with macaroni before being sprinkled with Parmesan and baked until golden brown. Since then, mac and cheese have been prepared using the same primary recipe.

Our recipe stays true to Mrs. Raffald's original. Like her, we start with a cheese sauce, though we like to add some nutty, creamy Gouda to help offset the sharpness of the Cheddar. What elevates this recipe is the addition of luscious lobster meat to the mix. The subtle sweetness of everyone's favorite cheese contributes to our red lobster mac and cheese transformation from a simple childhood staple to an elegant dish that will make you hesitate to go for that blue box again.
