This recipe is absolutely divine. It's like the ambrosia of mac & cheese. This is great fun to make with kids - lots of stirring, assembly etc -- but adults love the results just as much. Superb. I never measure anything and I definitely upped both the bacon and the truffle oil.
I made this recipe for the My-3-Chefs Game (November 2009) and my theme was Mac nâ€™ Cheese. I prepared all 3 mac n' cheese recipes for a dinner group and had them review. This recipe was a favorite of 3 of my guests. It was really good, but, I will make it next time without the onion.
