 1 lb elbow macaroni
 3 tbsp butter, plus 2 tbsp melted butter (for panko crumbs)
 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
 2 cups milk
 1 cup Blaser's Buffalo Wing Jack Cheese, shredded
 1 cup Blaser's Medium Cheddar Cheese, shredded
 ½ cup ranch dressing
  cup buffalo sauce, plus more for garnish
 1 cup Natural White Cheddar Cheese Curds, chopped
 1 dash black pepper
 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

Preheat oven to 375. Butter a 9x13 baking dish.


In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.


Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large pot. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Slowly add milk to flour mixture, while whisking constantly. Continue whisking until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.


Remove pot from heat and stir in cheeses until fully melted. Stir in ranch dressing and buffalo sauce and season with pepper (and salt, if desired). Fold in pasta, cheese curds, and bacon. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish.


Toss panko crumbs with melted butter and sprinkle on top. Bake until bubbly and golden, 25 to 30 minutes.


Sprinkle with chives and hot sauce before serving.
