Macaroni Pie is a signature Barbadian dish, and without a doubt you will find very few Bajans who don’t consider it to be one of their favorites.  Macaroni Pie, or ‘Pie’, as many Bajans call it, is served as a side dish to anything from Flying fish to Baked Chicken. Add some gravy and salad and you have an award winning meal. Whether you are getting pie from a Bajan Buffet at one of our many local restaurants, the back of a food van, or Sunday lunch at Granny’s, we can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed. 

If you’re feeling adventurous and want to impress your friends and family at your next social event, try making this signature Bajan Dish with this easy recipe below- it is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Grate cheese and add to macaroni while it is still hot.

Whisk the egg and add the milk, onion powder, white pepper, salt, pepper sauce, and mustard. Pour in with the macaroni and mix.
