My favorite Holiday dish to make... 3 Cheese Mac + Cheese Recipe


1 pound elbow macaroni

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

5 cups milk

1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter

3/4 cup GF flour

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

4 cups shredded white Cheddar cheese (about 1 pound)

2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese (about 4 ounces), at room temperature 1

1 1/2 cups freshly grated Truffle cheese (about 6 ounces)

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the macaroni until barely al dente, about 6 minutes. Drain; return to the pot.

Step 2    

Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion and cook over moderately high heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the milk and bring to a simmer.

Step 3    

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350°. Melt 6 tablespoons of the butter in another large saucepan. Add the flour and cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until lightly golden, about 5 minutes; remove from the heat.

Step 4    

Gradually whisk the simmering milk into the flour and butter mixture until smooth. Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook over low heat, whisking, until thick and bubbling, about 7 minutes. Stir in the salt and pepper. Add the Cheddar, Parmesan and 3/4 cup of the Truffle and cook over low heat, stirring, just until melted. Fold in the macaroni until coated with sauce. Spread the macaroni in a 3-quart baking dish.

StepStep 5    

Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in a medium skillet. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until coated. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the remaining 3/4 cup of Truffle. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until lightly golden and bubbling.

Step 6    

Preheat the broiler. Brown the macaroni under the broiler for 10 to 15 seconds. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
