Southern Living's Mac & Cheese Recipe:


16 ounces uncooked large elbow macaroni, large shells, or cavatappi pasta

6 tablespoons salted butter

1/3 cup grated yellow onion

2 teaspoons dry mustard

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

3 1/2 cups milk

1 3/4 cups heavy cream

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

4 ounces extra-sharp yellow Cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 cup), plus 4 oz. diced (about 1 cup), divided

4 ounces sharp white Cheddar cheese, shredded, (about 1 cup), plus 4 oz. diced (about 1 cup), divided


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare pasta according to package directions for al dente.

Step 2

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium. Add next 6 ingredients; cook, stirring, 30 seconds. Add flour, and cook, stirring, until golden, 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in milk and cream. Bring to a boil, whisking occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, whisking, until slightly thickened, 5 minutes. Stir in Worcestershire sauce. Remove from heat; stir in 3/4 cup each of shredded Cheddar cheeses until melted. (Reserve remaining 1/4 cup each of shredded cheeses.) Stir in pasta and diced cheeses; pour into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch (3-quart) baking dish.

Step 3

Bake on a rimmed baking sheet in preheated oven until bubbly and golden, 30 minutes. Remove from oven; increase oven temperature to broil. Sprinkle with reserved shredded cheeses; broil 6 inches from heat until cheeses are melted and golden, about 2 minutes. Remove from oven; cool slightly on a wire rack, about 15 minutes.
