This is the ultimate comfort food. Heavenly flavor and easy to put together. These were generous servings, we made as directed and it fed the two of us - twice! Made for 1-2-3 tag. Yum!

We felt that the bleu cheese overpowered the flavor in this recipe despite there being two other cheeses mixed in. It is also quite expensive to make considering the price of the gruyere cheese alone..(here in NY I paid $8 for an 8 ounce chunk of it)....If I make it again...for us I would definitely cut the amount of bleu cheese in half...the bacon is a nice touch...overall my husband didn't like it, and the kids said it was just okay...

Truly excellent mac and cheese. I wanted to post it myself but noticed that cookiedog had already done so. My BF and SIL served it for me for Christmas 2009, without the bacon because I'm vegetarian. This is not the ultimate mac and cheese, just the best "grown up" mac and cheese. I think the blue cheese makes it. I really enjoyed this a lot. It's not low-fat though! Also, 2 servings seems inappropriate, I think it's more like 4! Thanks for the recipe; too bad I couldn't post it (heh heh).

Oh no, I'm the odd one out! This was good, but not as great as I expected it to be. I keep searching for the best home-made version of mac & cheese, and have yet to find one that blows me away :(

This was incredibly rich and delicious! I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 13x9 casserole dish. I was lazy and just used plain bread crumbs from the store which worked out just as good. I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks for posting!

This is just comfort food at its very best. So wonderful; creamy, tangy, cheesy, delicious! I know I should trust Ina's recipes, but I still didn't know it would be this good! Thank you for posting this here.
