Macaroni and Cheese~ Crazy Cooking Challenge

I am thrilled to be participating in the Crazy Cooking Challenge.  69 fellow food bloggers and I have all made irresistible Macaroni and Cheese dishes to share with everyone.  Here you will have a chance to view my creation along with all the other creamy and delicious recipes.  Isn’t this fun?  

So how did I come up with mine?  I wanted to do something different for this challenge that combined some of my favorite cheeses; gruyere, asiago, provolone, fontina and sharp cheddar.  They melt together in perfect harmony.  After scouring the internet I stumbled upon the site My Husband Cooks and found a recipe I wanted to adapt.  If you are a cheese lover like I myself, you are in for a delicious treat.  With fall at our doorstep, this is the perfect dish to make for a potluck, or for a weeknight dinner.  Better yet, make this the night before and the next day, add the bread crumb topping, and bake and dinner is served.

Macaroni & Cheese
Adapted from My Husband Cooks


1 pound elbow macaroni, cooked

3 tablespoons butter

¼ cup all-purpose flour

1 ½ cup milk

1 cup Gruyere, shredded

1 cup Fontina, shredded

1 cup Asiago, shredded

1 cup Provolone, shredded

1 cup White Sharp Cheddar, shredded

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

For bread crumb topping-

2 tablespoons butter, melted

4 tablespoons bread crumbs


In a large saucepan melt butter.  Stir in flour until combined.  Slowly add in milk a few tablespoons at a time, stirring after each addition until sauce thickens before adding more.  Continue until all milk is combined and sauce is thick.  Add in cheeses and salt and pepper.  Stir until cheese has melted.  

Pour cheese sauce over cooked elbow noodles and mix well.  Pour in to a 9”x13” casserole dish or 4 12oz individual ramekins.  Stir melted butter with bread crumbs and sprinkle on top of casserole.  Bake in oven for 12-17 minutes until top is bubbly.  

Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste if desired and serve.  

Happy cooking!
