Bistro Mac & Cheese
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
I did not have Gorgonzola, so I used a bag of three blend cheddar (mild, sharp and fontina), 1/2 a bag of mozz and the cream cheese. It was wonderful. Will try it with the Gorgonzola next time. Hubby even loved it and asked for seconds. Thanks for the recipe!
I substituted Swiss cheese for Gorgonzola. My kids love it!
Your ratios are all wrong. It is soup. I had to simmer it down for 3-4 times what your instructions outline. I know there is always variable like equipment and actual temperatures. Not that you had detail instructions. I had to add more cheese, flour and butter to make it close to edible. Letting is sit for 20 minuets finally got the consistency right. Soup. Only thing I would ever take from this is the ingredients to use but not the amounts.
Everyone loved it!!
I wanted so bad to like this and I did, however, the taste was so subtle I could hardly tell there was cheese in it. It was very creamy not dry..but next time I was thinking of doubling the cheddar cheese and halving the recipe. By the way, shredded cheese in the bag is usually 8 ounces and contains 2 cups...8 ounces of LIQUID is 1 cup. Correct lonemomma!
Very delicious! We loved all the different cheeses and we even added BACON! Yum! I will say when it cooled it became a little dry so it would be nice to find a way to keep it creamy longer, but overall SUPER yummy!
A cheese lovers delight
Very good. I loved all the combo"s of cheeses. Can't wait to have the leftovers today !!!!!!!
Oh My!!! That's all I can say! This was an amazingly cheesy dish without being so upsthick you can't eat it! Nothing says comfort food like Mac and Cheese and this was great! for alittle more smoky flavor I topped with some bacon crumbles and put under the broiler for about 7 minutes to crisp up the bacon and bread topping.
The TOH Feb./Mar 2010 listed the recipe for the butter this way. The butter is NOT divided. You use all of the 3 Tbsp. The 2nd part of the directions that use the remaining butter was for a Crumb Topping. The 2010 TOH listed this topping as: Combine 1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs & 2 Tbsp. melted butter. You placed the macaroni mixture in a greased 3-qt. baking dish and sprinkled the crumb mixture over the macaroni. Baked uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly. YOU can cook this recipe as show. NOW for the 4 oz. & 8 oz. cheese. Look at a package of cheese and you will see that 8 oz. of cheese will have 2 cups listed. You are thinking about the liquid form for ounces. So 4 oz. will be 1 cup.
