Macaroni Cheese with Quorn Frankfurters

Macaroni Cheese with Quorn Frankfurters

This macaroni cheese is a favourite of mine from my childhood, my Mum used to make it regularly for us and it was always such a comfort to eat.

As an adult I have altered it to be slightly lower in fat and to have Quorn frankfurters in it to give it a slightly different texture and smoky flavour.  I haven’t tried this with vegan cheese yet, but as soon as I do I will post the results.

I cooked this up after returning late from work, so it is definitely a quick and easy recipe that you can run off from your store cupboard (one for the easy meal list in your meal plans)
