what you need
  • For the bread crumbs:
  • 2 to 3 slices cheap white bread (airy, not dense, crusts removed
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • For the macaroni:
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 package (8 oz.) elbow macaroni
  • 1/2 pound American cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
make it
1. To make the bread crumbs, rub the bread vigorously between your palms until coarse crumbs form. The cumbs will be unevenly shaped. Melt the butter in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add the crumbs and cook, stirring, until the crumbs are coated with butter, but not browned (the butter keeps the crumbes from burning, browns them nicely, and makes a great crunch). Transfer the crumbs to a bowl.

2. To make the macaroni, preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish with 1 tablespoon butter. In a pot of boiling water, cook the macaroni according to the package directions, drain and return to the pot.

3. Place the cheese, milk, remaining 2 tablespoons butter, salt, and pepper in the top of a double boiler or bowl set over a pot of boiling water. Cook, covered, until the cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Simmer the mixture uncovered, stirring, until smooth, about 1 minute more. Add the cheese to the pot of cooked macaroni and stir to coat.

4, Transfer the macaroni to the prepared casserole. Top with the bread crumbs.

5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
