  • Add the flour mixed with salt and pepper and whisk until blended. (This is a roux)Cook until the roux is a light golden brown moving the mixture around the pan constantly so it doesn’t scorch
  • Mix milk and cream..
  • Pour milk mixture in slowly, whisking constantly.Bring to a boil.Reduce heat and cook while stirring until the mixture thickens – about ten minutes.
  • Remove from heat.Stir in mustard.
  • Add about a 1/4 cup of the hot mixture to the beaten egg a tablespoon at a time, beating well so the egg doesn’t curdle.
  • Add the warm milk and egg mixture back into the mixture in the pan, whisking constantly.Stir in 3 cups of the cheddar and 1 cup of the medium cheddar until the mixture is smooth and creamy.Fold in the cooked, drained macaroni and the diced Swiss cheese.Spoon the macaroni mixture into a buttered 13 x 9 inch casserole dish.Melt the remaining 1/3 cup of butter in a high sided frying pan.
  • Add the breadcrumbs and cook, stirring constantly, until the crumbs are coated with butter and crispy.
  • Add the breadcrumbs to the top of the macaroni and cheese and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling.
  • Let the casserole stand for five minutes before serving.
