        that looked outstanding will have to give it a try

      2. Make sure you include Gruyere cheese and some parmesan cheese, a little dry mustard and some cayenne pepper.

        1. topping: fresh wheatberry bread crumbs strean on top of parmesan topping. Nice texture contradt. use fresh wholewheat crumbs, never "dried, seasoned" in the shaker can.

            I like mine with a bite, so I include a little bit of gorgonzola and both dijon mustard and worcestershire sauce.

              Just made mac and cheese the other day and added good quality horseradish for the first time. It made for a very tasty dish.

          2. I like this Paula Deen recipe. I add lots of bacon. Glorious.
