Very Dairy Mac N Cheese

Very Dairy Mac 'n Cheese


3/4 pound elbow macaroni

1 1/2 cups heavy cream

1 cup half-and-half

1 cup whole milk

2 large eggs

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1/2 tablespoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper

3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (8 ounces)

1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (4 ounces)

4 ounces cold cream cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Cook the macaroni for 3 minutes (it will still be very chewy). Drain the macaroni and return it to the pot.

  2. Butter a 10-by-15-inch baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk the heavy cream with the half-and-half, milk, eggs, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Stir in the shredded cheese and macaroni. Spread the mac and cheese in the prepared baking dish. Scatter the cream cheese cubes on top.

  3. Bake the macaroni for 5 minutes. Using the back of a large spoon, spread the melted cream cheese cubes evenly over the surface. Bake for 40 minutes, until bubbling.

  4. Broil the mac and cheese about 3 inches from the heat source around 2 minutes until browned. Let stand for at least 10 and up to 20 minutes before serving.
