This popular restaurant is known for its extra-cheesy Wisconsin mac and cheese, topped with a glorious pile of shredded cheddar. Here’s how you can nail it at home!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound (16 ounces) uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk, warm
  • 1 pound (16 ounces) cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Finely grated cheddar cheese (for topping)

Directions

  • 1 Cook elbow macaroni in salted water until al dente (cook time will vary; use guide on back of pasta box). Drain pasta and set aside. If you aren’t going to use the macaroni immediately, rinse it with cold water after draining.
  • 2 In medium-sized pot, add butter and flour and whisk together over medium heat to form a roux. Cook until the flour reaches a light tan color.
  • 3 Next, add warm whole milk to the roux 1/2 cup at a time. Pour in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly in order to avoid lumps and ensure ingredients are well incorporated before adding the next 1/2 cup. Repeat until all milk has been added.
  • 4 Reduce heat to low and cook mixture until it is steaming hot (but not boiling). Then stir in the grated cheddar cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  • 5 Stir cooked macaroni into the cheese sauce. Divide into bowls and garnish with a handful (or two) of finely grated cheddar cheese for extra cheesiness!
