Prep Time: 15 Min
Cook Time: 25 Min
First, lets make a roux. Start by melting butter in a skillet over medium heat. Then, add the flour and stir for 1-2 minutes. You’ll notice it becoming a thick paste and will have a light brown color.
Slowly pour in the milk, whisking continuously. The flour mixture will start to dissolve and you’ll be left with thick milk.
Next, add in all three types of cheese, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and mustard powder. Whisk everything together until everything is combined.
Now, grab a small baking pan and grease it with a bit of oil. Add the cooked pasta, lobster chunks, and homemade mac and cheese sauce into the dish. Stir everything and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven on the middle rack for 20-25 minutes until golden, bubbly, and delicious!
If you’ve just picked up some fresh lobster tails but aren’t sure what to do with them, I’ve got you covered! Be sure to thaw them first, if yours are frozen.
Boiling – Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add whole lobster tails with the shells still into the pot of water. Cook for 1 minute per ounce and once they are done, the shells will have turned red.
Carefully remove them from the pot and allow them to cool. They will be too hot to handle right away!
Grilling – Heat the grill to medium-high heat. For this method, you’ll want to make sure to expose the lobster flesh, so take your kitchen shears and cut lengthwise down the middle of the tail, leaving the end of it intact.
Bring the lobster meat out of the shell leaving the end still attached to the tip of the tail. This way it sits on top of the shell. Flip it over onto the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes before flipping over and cooking for another 5 minutes.
Baking or broiling – Broiling is done at very high heat close to the element. Baking on lower heat for a longer period of time. Both are great.
