We liked the flavor of this, I just had a couple of problems. The bacon on top did not cook well enough so if I make it again I will cook it before adding it. I also nearly drove myself nuts looking for the gouda in the recipe that was mentioned in each of the 3 prior reviews-couldn't find it. I also was unsure what size pan to use. That said, we liked it.
My picky husband and daughter actually liked this dish. Instead of only half and half, I did 1/2 heavy cream and 1/2 half-and-half. I also added muenster cheese. The smokiness of the gouda really stood out in the dish. I plan to make mac and cheese more often now. Thanks!
Wonderful filling supper for DH and DS. This makes a meal in one in basically no time. I did omit the jalapeno's per families request and subbed swiss cheese for the gouda. There's really nothing to add to this recipe as it's just a great all around dish. Made for PRMR.
We are already planning on having this again! I couldn't find gouda, so I had to substitute swiss cheese. Hubby raved about the topping, (I guess I've never done that before, hmm). Can never go wrong with mac and cheese in our house. Loved the addition of jalapenos and mustard powder, Delish! Thanks for sharing
