Ingredients

  • 8 ounces elbow macaroni
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 3-1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 medium white onion
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Pinch cayenne
  • 8 ounces cooked turkey, coarsely chopped
  • 10 ounces sharp aged white cheddar, grated
  • 3 ounces Gruyère cheese, grated
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup brioche bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    In large pot of boiling salted water, cook the macaroni to al dente (approximately 7 minutes). Strain and place on a lightly oiled sheet pan.

    While the macaroni is cooking, in a separate pot, melt the butter and whisk in the flour. Continue to cook over low heat for 4 minutes stirring constantly. Add the milk, onion, bay leaf, salt, pepper and cayenne. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add the chopped turkey and cook 1 or 2 minutes more. Remove onion and bay leaf.

    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 sauté 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.
