Skillet Macaroni and Cheese from Martha Stewart

Who doesn't like a good homemade Mac and Cheese now and then? I know I do. I have so many recipes for it, including some original ones.
I like the idea of making this one in a skillet. I would probably use a Cast Iron Skillet to make it look rustic!
Here's my adapted recipe:

  • 6 TBS Butter
  • 1 C Fresh Breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 C grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 small yellow Onion, diced small
  • 1/2 C all-purpose Flour
  • 6 C  Whole Milk
  • 3/4 pound Elbow Macaroni
  • 3 C grated sharp White Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 C grated Gruyere Cheese
  • 1 tspDijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Heat broiler. In a large straight-sided, oven-safe skillet, melt butter. Remove 1 TBS butter and combine with Breadcrumbs and Parmesan Cheese.

  2. Add Onion to skillet and cook until softened. Whisk in Flour and cook, stirring, 1 minute. 
  3. Gradually whisk in Milk and bring to a simmer.
  4.  Add Macaroni and cook, stirring constantly and scraping bottom of pan, until tender, about 6 minutes. 
  5. Remove from heat, stir in remaining Cheese and the Mustard.
  6. Season  to taste with Salt and Pepper. 
  7. Top with breadcrumb mixture and Broil until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.

Peace in the Kitchen!
