Cook macaroni noodles as directed on the package, stirring frequently.  Be sure to generously salt your water. Drain and  set aside.


In a dutch oven or cast iron skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour; continually stir and cook for 1 min to cook out the flour taste.  Gradually stir in milk and crushed chicken bullion cubes and bring to a boil; cook and stir until thick.

Add the cheeses; stir and cook until melted. Remove from heat and fold in cooked macaroni then sour cream. Add salt to taste. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Bake at 350˚ for 15-20 minutes, uncovered.

It's delicious just as it is, but you can serve topped with barbecue sauce for an amazing flavor kick!
