1 cup chopped raw bacon
1 stick butter
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup white wine
2 quarts milk
1 quarts grated sharp white cheddar cheese
6 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. each kosher salt and black pepper
2 lbs cooked elbow macaroni
2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 cup butter (melted)

Render bacon in sauce pot. Add butter and allow to melt. Stir in flour to produce a roux in the pot. Deglaze with white wine. Add milk, paprika, and chile flakes. Once it comes to a simmer, add in cheddar and cream cheese, whisking constantly to make sure it doesn't burn/stick to the bottom. Continue to cook approximately 10 minutes until sauce has thickened, and season with salt and pepper.

Grease a hotel pan or baking dish. In a large mixing bowl, toss macaroni with cheese sauce, and transfer to baking dish. Cover the top of the macaroni and cheese with the Italian bread crumbs and drizzle with melted butter.

Bake in a 350F oven for 20-25 minutes until bread crumb crust is golden and crispy. You will never try another macaroni and cheese recipe again!!! ENJOY!
