Can the world stand one more mac and cheese recipe? I think so, yes. Especially this one that is made with THREE cheeses, and the finest butter and cheese money can buy. Yes, it may be a costly dish but aren't you and your family worth it? At least now and then? Splurge a little!

How to Make IRISH MACARONI AND CHEESE

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.
  2. Melt 3 Tbsp. Kerrygold butter. Add flour and whisk over medium heat.
  3. Pour in milk slowly. Whisk well until incorporated and smooth. It will be thick at first. Add cayenne pepper, white pepper and sea salt.
  4. Gradually add cheddar, Blarney Castle and 1/2 of the Dubliner cheeses, whisking until incorporated.
  5. Add drained pasta into cheese sauce. Pour into large casserole dish.
  6. Mix together 1/2 the Dubliner Cheese, breadcrumbs, 3 Tbsp. melted butter and parsley. Top the pasta mixture with this mixture.
  7. Bake in a preheated 350º oven for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
  8. NOTE: Kerrygold dairy products can generally be found at WalMart stores, and I believe I have seen them at Kroger also.
