In a pinch for something quick, filling, and tasty? This is my go-to when the grocery stores have closed, and the fridge is empty. It’s amazing how well the smokeyness of the oysters, the sweetness of the onion, and the salty white cheddar cheese mix go together.

  • 1 box of white cheddar macaroni
  • 1 can of smoked oysters
  • 1 medium-sized onion
  • 3/4 Cup Milk
  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add macaroni, and cook for 4 minutes.
  2. Strain and reserve macaroni.
  3. Bring the empty pot back onto the stove at medium/high heat, and add only the smokey oil from the can of oysters.
  4. Cut the onion in half and slice it very finely, adding it to, and cooking it in, the smokey oil.
  5. Once the onion is cooked, which should take about 5 minutes, add and combine the 3/4 Cup of milk and the white cheese mixture.
  6. Add the noodles back to the pot and cook for 2-3 minutes, so that they can absorb some of the delicious sauce.
  7. Turn off the heat, and fold in the reserved can of oysters.
