Link to Recipe: Grown Up Mac and Cheese
When I saw the Barefoot Blogger recipe for this week (Grown Up Mac and Cheese), I was a little scared. Blue cheese? Gruyere? Uh...
I figured that I'd just do the recipe as is (except I added a little more bacon) and see how it went. From the start of grating the Gruyere, it was touch and go. The smell was awful. I thought the blue cheese would be the kicker for me, but the one I picked had a pretty mild scent. The Gruyere though - that one was like feet.
The good news? The Mac and Cheese tasted awesome. The smell faded out towards the end, and the flavors were wonderful. The basil on top really added a kick, and the cheeses all blended into a tasty, cheesy sauce. And I think the husband liked it even more than I did.
We did eat it more as a side dish than a main course though. All in all, I gotta say thanks to Heather for picking a great recipe!
