Easy stove-top mac and cheese recipe served with a sous vide egg yolk

Easy stove-top mac and cheese recipe served with a sous vide egg yolk. Hungry, lazy and looking for an easy hearty recipe to reward yourself for making it through another long week day? Here it is, super easy mac ‘n’ cheese recipe, no baking involved, just your stove top. Rich in flavour and calories, this dish is mostly served as a side and goes well with pretty much any kind of meat. Just have in mind that it’s only served hot, so make sure you’ve planned your cooking timings accordingly. Now, once you’re comfortable enough with the execution, you can use this recipe as a base and experiment by adding more ingredients, such as smoked bacon, crunchy prosciutto, truffles, crab, you name it!

And about that glossy egg yolk on the top… I finally got my hands on this fantastic sous vide heater and the egg yolk was my first try, please check the video below, it’s super easy to use. Basically you create a bain marie with oil, set the desired temp and let it cook for one hour – that’s it! In this recipe, sunflower and avocado oil were used. Depending on how firm you want the egg, you can try between 62ºC and 65ºC (143.6F – 149F). I cooked the yolks under 62ºC and they were as runny as shown in the pictures. If you’re looking for a firmer texture, then try cooking the yolks on higher temperature. And what about the egg whites? Save and use on pancakes OF COURSE.
