Chesapeake Bay Crabby Mac N' Cheese


1 1/2 cups of dry macaroni

1 pound jumbo lump crabmeat, picked and cleaned

3 tbs butter

2 tbs flour

1 large shallot, chopped finely

1  cup milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

3 oz fresh Parmesan cheese

10 oz sharp white cheddar cheese (block, it will melt better)

salt, fresh cracked pepper (to taste)

1/4 cup bread crumbs


Preheat the oven to 350 and lightly grease a casserole dish.

Cook the macaroni according to the box instructions, drain well. Add the crab meat and set aside.

In a sauce pot, melt the butter (on medium heat) and add chopped shallot. Saute almost translucent.

Sprinkle the flour over the shallot, mix well. Slowly pour in the milk and cream while constantly stirring with a whisk. The mixture will start thickening.

Grate the white cheddar into the milk mixture. Add salt and pepper and keep stirring, slowly, until the cheese is melted.

Pour the cheese mixture into the macaroni and crab. Add half of the grated Parmesan cheese. Stir well, until all combined.

Transfer into a baking casserole dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and the other half of the grated Parmesan cheese.

Bake for 25-30 minutes.
