Piri Piri Biltong Mac 'n Cheese - The Original Biltong Company

Piri Piri Biltong Mac 'n Cheese

We challenged @Papamikeskitchen to create a classic dish with our Piri Piri Biltong - Here is his fantastic meaty take on a childhood classic.

PREP 30 minutes. TOTAL 1 hour



250 g Dried macaroni

60 g Unsalted butter

40 g Plain flour

2 tsps Garlic paste

1 tsp Celery salt

2 tsps Chili powder

700 ml Whole milk

200 g Grated cheddar

100 g Grated Gruyere

Handful of parmesan

Handful of red jalapeños

Handful of panko breadcrumbs


Handful of biltong


Cook the macaroni to 4 mins less than instructions on packet. Also, preheat your oven to 200℃

While that is cooking take another saucepan and melt the butter. Add the garlic paste, celery salt and chilli powder and stir for a minute. Turn heat to low and add the flour stirring constantly and then add in the milk... slowly. Use a whisk to stir as you add. Continue to cook on low for around 8 to 10 mins. The liquid should start to thicken slightly... not much, just noticeable. At this point remove from the heat.


Add in the cheddar and Gruyere and season with salt and pepper. Add the macaroni, most of the biltong and most of the chillies and stir. Transfer to an oven proof dish.


Top with panko then the parmeasan and then the remaining chillies and biltong. Place in the oven for about 20 mins or until golden brown on top.
