    Dude, TO DIE FOR.

    My panties fell off as I was reading the ingredients!

      HA! SCORE! 😀

      Seriously though, you need to make this and tell me if you’ve been completely converted. It will make you dislike any other mac n’ cheese forever. Nothing compares to this recipe. Dang, Martha wins again!

    This looks AMAZING!!!

    I love mac and cheese! That looks yummy.

    We love to use Alton Brown’s baked mac and cheese recipe. It never fails us and is a good company dish.

      oooh that looks delish! I like the powdered mustard addition. Interesting.

    For Christmas my husband bought me a BEAUTIFUL new 4qt saute pan that I had been eyeing for several months. He now refers to this pan as “the (panny) dropper.) I suppose our husbands are o nthe same page with the offensive thing.LOL I haven’t tried guyere before- I’ll have to look into it. Thank you for sharing!

      Haha! Boys are like that, aren’t they? So proud of themselves. 🙂 Gruyere is like swiss cheese. It’s mild.

    My friends always ask me to bring this dip to parties, especially in the summer. I serve it with yellow corn tortilla chips. It’s soooo good!

    3 ripe avocados
    1/2 red onion, minced
    1 can black beans
    1 can sweet corn
    2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
    juice of 1/2 lemon
    juice of 1 lime
    4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
    salt & pepper to taste

    Drain and rinse black beans
    Peel, pit and dice avocados
    Finely chop red onion
    Finely mince fresh garlic
    Mix all ingredients in medium bowl.

      Oooh Lynne! That sounds delicious! I love dips and this one sounds great. I will definitely try it.

    I had to laugh as I read the recipe because the only ingredients in this dish that I eat are salt, nutmeg, black pepper and cayenne pepper. ~ But I can conjure up in my food taste memory banks what the Mac & Cheese must taste like and I am sure my panties would need to go up a few sizes if I ever decided to try it because I would love it.

    I am going to pass the recipe along to some cheese eaters who I know will love it.

    I do not like bratwurst but I bet it would be great with polish kielbasi.

      Yeah THIS version is NOT good for the waistline but I can eat it a few times a year without any guilt. I found a “light” version online but I don’t know if it will be quite the same.

    Three years later and I’m still raving about this mac and cheese and directing people to this recipe!

      I know! It’s the best recipe. It’s ALWAYS a hit!

    Bahaha at my above comment, now six years later, and I am still making this. Finally going to transfer it to my recipe book – which you’d think I’d have done by now, right? LOL.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      We are still making it too! Love it!
