Baked Macaroni Schotel

I hope you guys had a lovely weekend. Mine? It was hot, literally! The weather was unbelievable and just the time we thought of getting portable AC, they’re all sold out. Our place actually has 2 ACs, but they’re located in the hallways. I had no idea who came up with that plan in the first place.

Anyways, I now understand being in the oven, just like the dish I’m about to share. It’s called macaroni schotel as similar as mac-n-cheese in America.

This dish is quite popular in Indonesia, which I believe it has Dutch influence. It’s very simple and won’t take much of your time, and of course…let the oven do the magic for you.


  • 1 cup macaroni
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • ½ cup spam or sausage, cubed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbs flour
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tbs butter
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup 4-cheese blend (monterey jack, cheddar, queso quesadilla, asadero cheese)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease the baking pan with butter.
  2. Cook the macaroni in a boiling salted water until al dente, as directed.
  3. In a pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter, add onion and garlic. Cook for about 2 minutes, then add spam or sausage and cook for another 3 minutes. Add milk and cook for a while. Let it cool and set aside.
  4. Beat the eggs in a small bowl.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine macaroni, spam/ sausage mixture, egg, and flour.
  6. Spread a thin layer of macaroni in the baking pan. Layer with cheese mixture and mozzarella cheese. Continue layering until all ingredients are used.
  7. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 10-15 minutes before serving.
