Oh My Gosh, Kathy, what a scrumptious way to turn the tides on an old favorite.  I just need two things to complete those ingredients.  Yummy!

My oldest grandchild turns 13 and the party will be here tomorrow. I have 22 adults coming along with their children. This sounds like a perfect dish for both parents and kids. As it just happens I also have an abundant amount of all the ingredients.

Hi Kathy - I'll have to try this one.  I always liked macaroni and cheese, but haven't made it for a long time.  This sounds yummy!

Sounds delicious and I'm thinking it would be wise move to plan a few good workouts to burn off the calories after indulging to my heart's content...

Such a fun and yummy staple for big and small dinner needs.  I like making dishes that leave a function empty!

For the vegetarians out there, you might try omitting the bacon and adding Gruyere Cheese for some of the Cheddar...  Just a thought :)

Not a big fan of mac and cheese but if someone makes it for me I would definitely try/eat it.
