Recipe Ingredients for poole's diner macaroni and cheese

3 cups heavy cream
1/2 pound of macaroni, cooked al dente and drained
1 cup shredded gruyere, divided
1 cup shredded Parmesan, divided
1 cup Sharp Cheddar Shredded Cheese
2 tablespoons cold butter

Recipe Directions for poole's diner macaroni and cheese

  1. Set a rack in the oven about 4 inches from the broiler, and preheat broiler.

  2. In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, reduce cream by a fourth. Lower heat to medium. Stir in the macaroni and 3/4 cup each of the gruyere, Parmesan and white cheddar. Stir with a wooden spoon while tossing the contents of the pan in a sauteing motion. Add butter and salt, and continue stirring until the butter is emulsified into the sauce.

  3. Transfer mixture to a baking dish (see Note). Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup each of the gruyere, Parmesan and white cheddar over the top, distributing them evenly.

  4. Place the dish under the broiler. Watch it carefully, as you will need to rotate the dish to create an even crust. This will take from 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the strength of your broiler.

  5. Remove gratin from the oven and season with fresh cracked black pepper. Serve immediately.
