Ingredients

  • 1

    pound elbow macaroni

  • 1

    quart milk

  • 8

    tablespoons unsalted butter (divided)

  • ½

    cup all-purpose flour

  • 12

    ounces Gruyere cheese, grated

  • 8

    ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, grated

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • ½

    teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ½

    teaspoon nutmeg

  • pounds cooked lobster meat, chopped

  • cups fresh white bread crumbs, about 5 slices, crusts removed

Directions

Pre-heat the oven to 375°F. Cook elbow macaroni according to package directions. Drain well. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan heat the milk but do not boil. In a large deep skillet (or pot) melt 6 tablespoons of butter, whisk in the flour and cook over low heat for about 2 minutes while whisking. Slowly add the hot milk, while whisking until the mixture is thickened and smooth. Remove from heat; add the Gruyere cheese, Cheddar cheese, 1 teaspoon salt, black pepper, and nutmeg. Add the cooked macaroni and lobster and stir well (if there is too much in the pan, you can mix the cheese sauce with the macaroni and lobster in a large bowl). Spoon the mixture into a 11×15-inch baking dish. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and combine them with the fresh bread crumbs, sprinkle on top of the mac and cheese. Place into the oven and bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbly and the macaroni is browned on top.
