Stovetop Brie Mac and Cheese

1 teaspoon salt

1 pound elbow pasta

3 C. whole milk

1 white onion, chopped

1 teaspoon whole cloves

½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

6 ounces sourdough bread, sliced and toasted

5 ounces Brie cheese, cut into 1-inch pieces

¼ cup chopped scallions, both white and green parts, for garnish


Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil. Add the salt and the pasta and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, or until al dente. Drain and set aside. Put the milk, onion, cloves, and nutmeg in a large saucepan and set over medium-low heat. Bring to a simmer, then remove from the stove and set aside for 15 minutes to allow the ingredients to steep. Strain out and discard the onion and cloves and pour the milk into a blender. Cut or tear the bread into pieces and add to the milk. Puree the bread and milk into a creamy slurry. Put the cooked pasta in a large pot, add the milk-bread slurry, and set over medium-low heat. Slowly whisk in the Brie, one piece at a time. Serve garnished with the chopped scallions.
