    Hi steph
    Tried this recipe tonight for the kids…new to thermomix, still found I wanted to modify…noticed you put milk at 750g is that suppose to be mls? Also with the cheddar cheese you never mentioned whether to leave in bowl or to set aside, i cooked in with milk and flour and butter.. I wasn’t to sure if it was to cook on recverse or with butterfly…
    Your suggestions would be be helpful…

    Hi Debbie,

    This must have passed me by my apologies!! Hope you are enjoying your Thermie. You will note that all liquid ingredients are converted to gram ingredients which makes it easy to weigh so the recipe is accurate with 750grams. I have made this a couple of time. Once grating the cheeses it is best to set it all aside until assembling in baking dish. The sauce (milk flour butter) does not require the butterfly or cooking on reverse. I hope this helps.
    Happy Thermomixing!!
