BlamCo Mac & Cheese – Fallout series

Hide/show introduction

The main theme in this post will be food appearing in may parts of the Fallout series – Fallout 3, 4, 76 and New Vegas. We chose a dish that should be remembered by every player who paid attention to greenish, rectangular food boxes on damaged shelves in post-apocalyptic houses (although in newest installments graphics of the box changed radically).

Try the delicious BLAMCO MAC & CHEESE – due to the limited equipment of the hero crossing the wasteland, we have prepared this nutritious dish in a single pot version without baking. Because just like “war never changes”, so Mac & Cheese is great comfort food for anyone who loves cheese flavors;)

macaroni with cheese in one pot

PREP TIME: 20 min
PRICE: medium
LEVEL: easy
big pot


175g elbow shaped pasta made of durum flour
1 and 3/4 cups full fat milk
3 tablespoons (60g) butter
100g cheese mix – soft and hard kinds (i.e.gouda, cheddar, parmesan)
a pinch of nutmeg
1 tsp mustard
3 tbsp dried bread crumbs
pepper, salt



Sneak into someone’s wasteland house, steal their pot, 2 boxes of BlamCo Mac & Cheese and use their cooker, and you can leave your mutant buddy on guard by the door. The rest should go easily.

1. PASTA + MILK + BUTTER + SALT(10-15 min)

Add 1.5 cups of dry pasta into a large pot, add 1 and 3/4 cup of milk, add 2 tablespoons of butter and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Put the pot on medium heat and stirring constantly (very important – otherwise the pasta sticks) bring to a boil. Reduce the power of the burner and cook, MIXING FROM TIME TO TIME, about 10 minutes or less, depends on the type of pasta you have. Mixing is a key to success here! During this time, the pasta should absorb the milk and thicken the whole mixture from the starch derived from the pasta. Try to see if the pasta is already semi-hard (al dente) – if not, cook until it is suitable. If all the milk would evaporate from the pot, add a little more during the process, so that the pasta cannot burn.

Add 1 teaspoon mustard, a pinch of nutmeg and some freshly ground pepper to the mixture. Again, we mix thoroughly.

Gradually add 3/4 cup grated cheese into the pot, while constantly stirring, preferably a mixture of soft and hard cheeses, strong in taste. You can experiment with your favorite cheeses and look for the perfect combination, or simply add the ones you have on hand. Mix everything well with the pasta and heat on low power for a while, until the cheese dissolves and forms a creamy sauce. Taste and season with more salt if needed, and stir in a splash of milk if it’s too thick. Set the pot from the burner, cover it with a lid and set aside – at this time we get to the next point.


In the pan, dissolve the rest of the butter (1 tablespoon), add 3 tablespoons of breadcrumbs and brown them on medium heat. Remember that the crumbs take on its color for a while after turning off the burner, so take it off the heat when it turns a light brown color.

Put a large portion of mac & cheese into the bowls and sprinkle on top with browned breadcrumbs. Take out a spoon from our toolbox and eat it while hot. After this, you will regain 5 health points and acquire 3 radiation points. Perk of “survival expert” received!
