Caramelize the onions and garlic in half the butter over medium heat for 15-20 minutes. Set aside.

In the same skillet, melt the remaining butter. Add flour and whisk for 1-2 minutes to form a roux.

Gradually whisk in the milk and cook until thickened, about 3-4 minutes.

Stir in the Gruyere cheese until the sauce is smooth. Add the cream, salt, and pepper, stirring well.

Mix the cooked macaroni, caramelized onions, and cheese sauce in the skillet. Add most of the bacon, reserving some for topping.
