“I love comfort food and this is one of them, crunchy top and cheesy inside, what a lovely dish. It’s so easy to make and after you put it in the oven, everything done.” Jiraporn



450 g elbow macaroni

120 g lightly smoked slab bacon, cut into 1/4-inch dice

2 tablespoons olive oil

White sauces:

60 g Butter

60 g all-purpose flour

5 cups whole milk

40 g grated Parmesan cheese

80 ggrated Gruyère cheese

1½ teaspoons salt

½ teaspoon Pepper


60 g (or enough to cover the top) grated Gruyère cheese


Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

Cook the macaroni according to the directions on the package.

Drain, toss with the olive oil, and set aside in a large mixing bowl.

Add the bacon to a small skillet and sauté over medium heat until brown but not crisp, about 10 

Drain on paper towels and add to the cooked macaroni.

In a medium saucepan, bring the milk just to a foamy boil, then reduce the heat to very low to 
keep warm.

In another saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.

When the foam subsides, remove from the heat.

Whisk in the flour and continue stirring until a smooth, pale roux has formed.

Return the saucepan to medium heat and, while still whisking steadily, begin ladling the hot milk into the roux, 1 cup at a time, completely incorporating each cup before adding the next.

After all the milk has been added, continue to whisk until the sauce thickens and bubbles gently, about 2 minutes.

Add the Parmesan, Gruyère, and the salt and pepper, and stir until the cheese has completely 

Pour the sauce over the macaroni, mix thoroughly, and pour into a buttered 10 X 14-inch gratin 
dish, sprinkle the Gruyère on top.

Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until the top is golden and crunchy.
