    ms_bold's Note:

    I adopted this recipe. It is very rich and creamy with the signature spicy kick of Emeril Lagasse. He is the King of Bam and Pork Fat. This mac and cheese has it all.

      Wow, this is a good recipe, but you need only use 1/4 cup butter, not 9 tablespoons and 1/4 butter, it is way too much. I also do not use the 1 tablespoon of fat from the sausege, and I use low fat milk for the sauce, can't really tell the difference.
