Herbed Breadcrumb-Topped Macaroni and Cheese Recipe
In the South, we know that mac and cheese is worthy of the Thanksgiving table just like every other creamy casserole and hearty carb-packed dish—especially this version, which is topped with buttery panko breadcrumbs flavored with sage, thyme, and rosemary. Our Test Kitchen’s secret to incredible macaroni and cheese is cubes of Cheddar cheese that melt as the pasta bakes, creating pockets of gooey goodness in every bite. The dish can be made through Step 2 up to one day in advance; cover and refrigerate. Bring the dish to room temperature (about 30 minutes) before proceeding with Step 3. We’re all for a make-ahead Thanksgiving recipe!
