    Chef #1131238's Note:

    An easy cheesy dish that kids and guests will love. I'm a HUGE cheese fanatic so this is one of my faves. Also, this is the only mac dish that you can eat with your hands!! (The spices are to my liking. Alter if you need to... Goes great with ranch!)

      I subbed smoked gouda for the sharp cheddar and then used a mayo wash instead of and egg wash, SO delicious!
