Lobster Mac & Cheese


By Samantha Hemingway

Mac & Cheese 1 I’ve partnered with Lobster Trap to create lobster recipes. Lobsters are shipped live and fresh from The Lobster Trap, Inc., headquartered in Cape Cod, MA with lobster pound facilities in Machiasport, Addison, and Steuben, ME.

The Lobster Trap has been in the lobster business since 1972 and is proud to be the second largest wholesaler of Maine lobster in the world. All lobsters ordered are guaranteed for next-day delivery and freshness. I love lobster mac and cheese, so I decided it would be the perfect choice for my first recipe. For the dairy and flour, I used Vermont products.
