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.
