    I like the onions in this. I had to use gruyere cheese due to not finding the other. I used bacon instead of pancetta. Reminds me of how I grew up.

    Very tasty but I should have made a 1/2 recipe. I used bacon and otherwise followed the recipe. I used 1/2 lb Emmental. I loved the sauteed onions with the cheese.

    *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #76* Prepared 1/2 recipe (still TONS !) - using Amish egg noodles, bacon, and ementhal. I think pancetta would be more flavorful. Was nice and cheesy, but a tad dry. Will "soup" up the left-overs for another night. Nice different way for "mac&cheese". Thanks for posting Lynn.

    Oh, this is just decadent! It's so rich and cheesy (I slipped in a little extra cheese to use up the small bit left over). I had to use turkey bacon as it's the only thing on hand but it still tasted grand. The servings are generous and will still be gobbled up. It's also no stress to put together and served with a simple salad with a very light dressing (I use lemon juice and a touch of salt) this makes a very satisfying dinner.

    Made for a nice comforting lunch. I did use bacon bits for the cooked bacon, and cumin seeds. and some shredded swiss cheese. We all enjoyed it, Made for I Recommend.
