French Onion Mac and Cheese

French Onion Mac and Cheese

Hello friends!

The weather has finally shaped up and it looks like Fall is just around the corner. Leaves turning just a smidge of orange, a crisp chill to the breeze, and Pumpkin-everything on the shelves makes for one happy blogger.

As the weather turns cooler, I find that I am more drawn to comfort foods and hearty meals as well. In the summer, it was so hot that all I could think about was ice coffee and microwave meals, anything that meant I didn’t have to turn the oven on.

But now…



  • one batch caramelized onions* (see recipe in Notes Section)
  • 1 box whole wheat elbow pasta
  • equal parts beef broth and water for boiling (~3 cups each)
  • 1 cup freshly grated Gruyere cheese, plus more for topping
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
