So Since being here have got obsessed with the Alpine Macaroni and have made up my own easy to follow recipe-Hope you enjoy making and more importantly eating it as much as I do! A warming, filling winter dish usually served with warm apple sauce : )

  • Half litre of double cream (local if you can)
  • 8-10 rashers of bacon cut up into pieces-if veggie version leave this out.
  • 3 white onions
  • 2 large potatoes
  • Lots of grated white cheese-chedder is tasty and obviously AlpKase is the best!
  • pepper, salt for seasoning.
  • knob of butter for cooking.
  • half cup of white flour.
  • 5-8 apples, ground cinnamon, water.


  1. Fry onions and bacon in a little oil in a frying pan. Empty these into a large glass pyrex oven dish.
  2. Slice the Potatoes and boil for approx 20 mins. Boil the pasta too for approx 20 minutes.
  3. Drain potatoes and Pasta and add to dish. Mix all together.
  4. Place the butter in a saucepan, let melt then add the flour, mix and add the cheese (save a little for topping).
