    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 2-quart baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter and set aside.
    2. 2
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold running water. Drain well.
    3. 3
      Melt the remaining 5 tablespoons butter in a heavy 3-quart saucepan over medium heat.
    4. 4
      Add the flour, and stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, cook over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, being careful not to let the flour brown.
    5. 5
      Using a whisk, add the milk in a steady stream and cook, whisking constantly, until thick and smooth, 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.
    6. 6
      Add the salt, pepper, cayenne, and 2 cups of the cheese, and stir well. Add the noodles and stir well. Pour into the prepared dish.
    7. 7
      In a mixing bowl, combine the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese with the bread crumbs and Essence. Sprinkle evenly over the macaroni and bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 25 minutes.
    8. 8
      Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

      This mac & cheese recipe is so good. Very rich tasting. I use a variety of cheeses (cheddar & Jarlesborg). I made my own essence (recipe on zaar). Easy to make too. Thanks for submitting. Enjoy my photo.

      Great recipe. I didn't use the Emeril's Essence and sometime use different types of Cheesse. Like PeperJack.
