For the Macaroni and Cheese:

  • 4 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)

For the Topping:

  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (Panko or regular)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Preheat the Oven:

    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish and set it aside.
  2. Cook the Pasta:

    • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
    • Add the elbow macaroni and cook according to the package instructions until al dente.
    • Drain the pasta and set it aside.
  3. Prepare the Cheese Sauce:

    • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the 1/4 cup of butter.
    • Stir in the flour to create a roux. Cook for about 2 minutes until it turns a light golden color.
    • Gradually whisk in the milk and heavy cream, continuing to whisk until the mixture thickens and is smooth.
    • Reduce the heat to low and stir in 3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese until it's fully melted and the sauce is creamy.
    • Season the sauce with salt, black pepper, paprika, and garlic powder, if using.
  4. Combine Pasta and Cheese Sauce:

    • Add the cooked and drained macaroni to the cheese sauce. Stir well to coat the pasta evenly with the creamy cheese sauce.
  5. Make the Topping:

    • In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, melted butter, and grated Parmesan cheese.
  6. Assemble and Bake:

    • Pour the macaroni and cheese mixture into the greased baking dish.
    • Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese evenly over the top.
    • Top it with the breadcrumb mixture.
  7. Bake:

    • Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown, and the cheese is bubbly.
  8. Serve:

    • Remove the baked macaroni and cheese from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
    • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and serve hot.
