Finally found my favorite, most ultimate comfort food! This is published in Emeril's Everyday's A Party Cookbook. It's my favorite of all his books because my old house is in it. Our old house, which was under 8' of water for 3 weeks after Katrina, was such a great place to entertain...ahhh, the memories.
Anyway, Emeril calls for 1/4 lb of grated smoked gouda but we liked half cheddar, half gouda so it isn't too smoky. Serve with some fried catfish fresh from the pond and a tall iced tea with mint.
