    Decadent! Everyone raves about this dish. So cheesey and full of flavor. Good southern comfort food. Wonderful with pork chops or fried chicken. Originally I got the base of this recipe from Nell Carter on some TV show. I had to spice it up a bit.

      Sinfully delicious and cheesey! Even though it contains eggs, it's much creamier than other "custard-style" mac & cheese recipes. Lots of flavor, too. I used fresh minced onions rather than powder, otherwise made this as written. This recipe is a keeper! Thanx so much for posting this!

      Wonderful recipe and Kate Plate is correct; it is completely flexible as far as type of cheeses and adjustment... I substituted goat cheese for swiss and did one additional cup of cheddar instead of the Muenster. Also, an AWESOME addition: I heated three tablespoons of butter in a pan, and added 3/4 cup breadcrumbs along with 1/2 cup finely chopped onion, and four minced garlic gloves until all were nicely browned. I sprinkled the crumb combo over the mac 'n cheese before baking. The nice crunch and garlic made a good recipe great. After it was prepared and on the table, I drizzled a little bit of truffle oil over it - WOW. DELISH... Heads up; I made this for my boyfriend and myself and it was WAY more than enough - really does fill a 9 x 13. With a side, this could probably feed four with everyone having seconds. Keeping this one!

      Oh yes! I prefer the custard style Mac and Cheese. This really hit the spot. All I had was hot pepper monteray jack so I used this in place of the munster. I use swiss and extra sharp cheddar alone with a bag of mixed melting cheese. This was very good. I had it for the main dish instead of a side. Too good to just be a side.
