Print Recipe


  • 5 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 2 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 ounces elbow macaroni
  • 4 cups shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped chives


  • Heat butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium/high heat.
  • Whisk in the flour and stir while cooking for 1 minute.
  • Whisk in the milk, cream, and wine slowly, one cup at a time, whisking constantly. Bring to a simmer.
  • Quickly add the macaroni, dijon, and salt and pepper, stirring constantly while cooking, about 6 minutes, or until al dente. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the pan while you cook.
  • Turn off the heat and stir in the cheese. I stirred in about half at a time to make sure none spilled over the sides.
  • In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, breadcrumbs, and parmesan.
  • Pour the breadcrumb mixture over the mac and cheese and broil for 2 minutes or until they are golden and toasted. Top with the chives and serve hot.
  • Enjoy!
