“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Other Ready Meals „
I saw this item for sale in Morrison's for a £1 per pack and thought as my son and I work very strange hours what a great idea to sling in the freezer for a meal we can have at a later date.
Also can be eaten fresh too.
I noticed the appertising packaging which is what made me buy it in the first place which had a picture of macaroni cheese over the cover which is a cardboard sleeve and obviously writing stating name of company and macaroni cheese.
Inside there is a carton which is microwaveable or can be placed in conventional oven. this has a film lid.
To cook I used the microwave so much quicker and simple. Just pricked the sleeve and shoved it in. Cook from fresh or frozen as it gives instructions for both and hey presto in a matter of a few minutes this cheesy meal is done.
Take out of the tub and place on plate and eat with other things or on its own. I had bread and butter with mine, my son had chips. I found this meal adequate in size but tom said it could be a little bigger. I have since noticed there are two sizes to this meal so he gets the bigger one now. Which seems to be adequate. In fact he left a bit as he was full.
The meal smelt good and tasted ok quite cheesy and smooth and what you would expect from a prepacked macaroni cheese. On the whole not a bad find in my view and will take a place in our freezer for that quick snack.
Macaroni Cheese now it's not really the sort of meal that I would normally eat but when I sent Hubby to buy Cauliflower Cheese from Morrison's he came back with this by mistake.
He was rushing to get back for 'Top Gear' on the television if the truth be known!!!!!
At the moment Morrison's are doing a deal on their favourites line of ready meals five for 4.00 so I do buy a few of them for easiness when we have both been working and they are all suitable for freezing.
Trying this for a change is not going to be that bad an idea. It can be bought for 89p if you only want one but still a good bargain.
It comes in a plastic dish suitable for the microwave or conventional oven and this is sealed with a film lid and wrapped in a cardboard sleeve with a nice picture of the meal on the front.
To cook in the microwave you just remove the cardboard sleeve and pierce the film lid a few times, set the timer for 2.5 minutes, let it stand for 1 minute and then continue to cook for a further 2.5 minutes. It is recommended that you leave for a further minute before eating.
I personally prefer to cook in a conventional oven and this takes 25 minutes from chilled or 40 minutes from frozen at 200 degrees, so either way is quite easy.
I did notice that the plastic tray goes quite soft in the oven so it is best to stand it on a baking tray to avoid burning yourself when you take it out.
We ate ours with Cumberland Sausage and a baked potato, the cheese sauce was rich and creamy but I did have to add some parmesan cheese to mine because I like a stronger taste but my hubby enjoyed his as it was. The macaroni was cooked just right and the portion size was more than adequate.
I have added ham to this dish on another occasion and I can highly recommend it.
There is one very big draw back to this meal for me despite it being absolutely delicious, it is very fattening......
I certainly could not afford to eat it too often I have to watch my weight but it is nice for a treat.
