Ingredients

  • 2 cups elbow macaroni
  • 4 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. Cook the macaroni according to package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour until the mixture becomes paste-like and light golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  4. Gradually whisk in the milk so that no lumps form, then bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in 3 cups of cheddar cheese until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth. Season with salt, pepper, and paprika.
  6. Combine the cooked macaroni and cheese sauce in the greased baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese and breadcrumbs on top.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown, about 30 minutes.
  8. Let it cool for a few minutes, then serve your Satisfyingly Gooey Macaroni and Cheese Casserole hot and gooey.
