Mac & Cheese

Macaroni and cheese have always been my favorite comfort food; we just took it to the next level! Four melty cheeses combine to create a rich creamy cheese sauce and then it gets topped with a crispy breadcrumb topping making it even more decadent. 

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
Serves: 4-6


4 T. butter, divided
3 c. milk
10 oz. small macaroni
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
8 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded
4 oz. fontina cheese, shredded
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 c. breadcrumbs

1/2 c. parmesan cheese, freshly grated
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. In a large pot, melt the butter over low heat. Remove two (2) tablespoons and set aside in a medium bowl.
  3. Add the milk to the pot and bring to a steady simmer – season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the macaroni and cook, stirring regularly, until the macaroni is mostly cooked through and creamy, around 10-12 minutes.
  4. Add in the cheddar, mozzarella, and fontina. Continue cooking until the cheese is completely melted and very creamy, another 3-4 minutes.
  5. Remove the pot from heat and transfer the macaroni mixture to a medium casserole dish.
  6. To the reserved butter, add the garlic, breadcrumbs, and parmesan; mix well. Spread the breadcrumb mixture on top of the macaroni.
  7. Place in the oven to bake until golden brown and crispy on top, approximately 15-20 minutes. Allow cooling for 10-15 minutes before serving.  Enjoy!
