step-by-step directions
  • Grate all Cheeses and combine.  Pre-heat your oven to 350°F.
  • Cut a slit into the halved Onion and place a Bay Leaf in the slit.  Stick the 2 cloves of Garlic into the Onion.  Start making the Mornay Sauce by placing the Milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat and adding the Onion.  In a separate saucepan, melt the Butter and add ½ clove grated Garlic. Slowly add the Flour, whisking to combine, and cook for 2 minutes.  Ladle in the warm Milk, whisking constantly, until combined and smooth.  Add the Nutmeg, Black Pepper and Cayenne Pepper. Add 5 ounces Cheddar and 5 ounces Taleggio and 3 ounces Fontina and 3 ounces Gouda.
  • In a separate pan, bring Water to a boil and add Salt.  Add the Macaroni and cook until tender.  Strain the Macaroni and place in a bowl.  Add the remaining grated Cheeses and toss to combine.
  • Pour the Mornay Sauce over the Macaroni and toss to combine. In a small sauté pan, melt 3 tablespoons butter and add the Panko Breadcrumbs, Thyme and Lemon Zest.  Place the combined Macaroni and Cheese into a shallow baking dish and top with the grated and the Breadcrumbs. Bake in a 350°F oven for 20 minutes and serve immediately.
