1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

3 cups milk

1 cup cream cheese

2 cups smoked gouda, shredded

1 cup American cheese, shredded

5 tbsp McCormick® Culinary®  Everything Bagel Seasoning, divided (SWS# 78083)

1 pound shell pasta, cooked

1 cup French’s® Crispy Fried Onions (SWS# 32684)

Cooking Instructions

  • Preheat convection oven to 350°F (conventional oven 375°F). 
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, once bubbles start to form add the flour. 
  • Cook for 2 minutes. Slowly add milk, whisking consistently.
  • Bring to a boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly until mixture thickens. 
  • When the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, add in the cream cheese, smoked Gouda, American cheese, and 4 tablespoons of McCormick® Culinary® Everything Seasoning. 
  • Simmer, stirring consistently, until the cheese is completely melted. 
  • Add cooked pasta to cheese sauce and stir until well combined. 
  • Place into half a hotel pan or, for individual plates, equally divide into 4 oven safe dishes. Bake until golden brown and bubbling, about 20-25 minutes. 
  • While mac and cheese is baking, combine French’s® Crispy Fried Onions and remaining tablespoon of McCormick® Culinary®  Everything Seasoning in a small bowl. 
  • Remove mac and cheese from the oven and sprinkle with seasoned onions. 
  • Bake for an additional few minutes, just until onions begin to brown.
