  • 3-1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 medium white onion
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt

    Turn off the heat and add 3/4 of the aged cheddar and all of the other cheeses. Fold in macaroni. Pour into a 2-quart casserole dish. Top with remaining cheddar.

    Melt the butter in a saut?? pan and toss bread crumbs and parsley to coat. Top the macaroni with bread crumb mixture. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven let stand for about 5 minutes.
