Description

Creamy Baked Macaroni and Cheese is the cheesiest, creamiest casserole recipe idea to make any weeknight dinner special!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound pasta, cooked & drained
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 5 ounces Boursin Garlic & Herb cheese
  • 2 cups grated White Cheddar
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 cup smashed Butter Crackers
  • 2 ounces White Cheddar Cheese, chopped into bits
  • 2 TBS melted butter

Instructions

  1. Boil pasta according to package directions.
  2. Preheat oven to 350˚
  3. In a skillet, melt butter and being making your roux.
  4. When the butter is melted, sprinkle in the flour and whisk until all lumps disappear.
  5. Allow the flour and butter to cook for a couple of minutes to remove any raw flour taste—be careful not to burn the roux!
  6. Slowly pour in 1.25 cups of whole milk, whisking constantly until thick.
  7. Plop in the Boursin cheese, and stir to melt and combine.
  8. In stages, sprinkle in 2 cups of shredded white cheddar cheese, while your skillet is over the lowest heat.
  9. Stir in each handful until the cheese has completely melted, then pick up another handful.
  10. Grind in some black pepper, and check to see if you need to add any other seasonings.
  11. Once the sauce is creamy and dreamy, pour this over the cooked and drained noodles in a separate bowl. (Make sure the bowl is large enough to toss everything around really well!)
  12. Dump the macaroni and cheese into a buttered casserole dish.
  13. In a small bowl, toss the smashed crackers with the chopped cheese and drizzle in 2 TBS of melted butter. Mix all this up, and spread over the top of the macaroni and cheese casserole.
  14. Bake at 350˚ for 15 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly on top!
