I had real high expectations for this dish. All of the ingredients together sounded like it would make an amazing tasting mac & cheese. Not so much. It was very creamy, but kind of bland. But, the nutmeg taste was very visible. Which surprised me (and my family). I used mild cheddar and Swiss cheese as suggested, for the cheese sauce and then added the Parmesan cheese to the top. I think I will stick to my tried and true recipe from my Betty Crocker cookbook. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
Oh my! These are very, very yummy indeed! The sauce has the perfect thickness and a lovely subtle spicyness. I made half the recipe and it still made a big casserole. I will definitely make this again the next time I crave the ultimate comfort food without all the hassle. Great, thanks for sharing, bakedapple42! Made and reviewed for one of my "babies" in Spring PAC 2009.
