Mac ‘n’ cheese pie

Mac ‘n’ cheese pie

Recently, Alex and I went to Edinburgh to film some comedians for work. Here we are working very, very hard.

 

We managed to get in Mary’s Milk Bar. Hoooooly crap

Whilst we were there, she mentioned that apparently in Scotland you can get a mac ‘n’ cheese pie. I bloody love mac ‘n’ cheese, as the many recipes for it on this website shows,  and the idea of taking something that’s already delicious and putting it in a pie was too good to resist. Everything takes better in a pie. Pizza. Meat and vegetables. Cheese and onion. Ice-cream, probably. How good would mac ‘n’ cheese taste?
