Default Your best Mac n Cheese

I have been surfing around the Internet and searching these boards for Mac N Cheese recipes. I was hoping to find a unique recipe that was based on real artisinal cheeses (I am from WI after all.) There are a lot that are based on Cheese Soup or Velveeta. The opening of the Wisconsin deer season is next Saturday and due to some things I need to get done at work and classes that I am taking to get my MBA, I am not going to be hunting. However, I will be up at the cabin cooking ribs, chicken and hopefully some Mac N Cheese for the guys who are out pounding the brush that day. My UDS is taking a 2.5 hour road trip north! Any suggestions for a Mac N Cheese that is out of this world???

I will be watching this thread, because I love mac and cheese, and I too am looking for a really good recipe. The good stuff -- thick and cheesy. Really good mac and cheese is a meal all by itself.

Thanks morgaj1, that was exactly what I was trying to make. Deer camp will be so impressed. Serving that with a few McChicken and McRib sandwiches, I should be have the whole Chicken and Ribs thing nailed. It will save me from having to drag the UDS up north too!

My wife makes mac-n-cheese based on a Paula Deen recipe, and it is K-I-L-L-E-R!!! The only thing I remember about the recipe is that it uses 4 sticks of butter! Seriously, though, it is great! Here's the link...

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/p...ipe/index.html

I asked her what she did differently, and she said:
more butter, more mac, more cheese, more salt, more sourcream, add pepper. She also said she adds an extra egg. Basically, add more of what you love!

Hope this helps!

I have used AB's recipe http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/a...ipe/index.html

My 10yo nephew who is the world's foremost connoisseur of mac n cheese said it was the world's best! Doctor it up however you see fit - bacon, jalapeno's, sausage, scallions, whatever and play with the cheese mix too. I have used sharp cheddar, gouda, gruyere, and romano once, and that was my personal fav. I like the set kind of mac, not the runny kind, so sometimes I throw in an extra egg. I think it is hard to fark up mac though - most versions seem to taste great!

Wow, thanks everyone. Looks like a ton of great options. It's funny, but when I search for recipes on the web (BBQ or not), I like to add the word "blog" or "personal favorite" to my search terms, to try to weed out the plethora of recipes that are just dumped on the Internet. Hearing the stories behind the recipes and the testimonies from all of you makes the recipe very personal and it has some merit when someone actually says it is their favorite. Thanks for all of the fast responses. I am tempted to make a batch tomorrow just to see how things go before next weekend. I don't tend to spring a new recipe on a group, I like to try it once first. However, as I said above, having a personal story behind it makes it less risky. Thanks!!

I got one or two of each pepper the grocery store had to offer, smoked them for two hours then seeded and chopped them. Used Asiago, parm, pepper jack and velveeta, one pound of cooked crumbled bacon and mixed them all together with cooked noodles.

Then I smoked them at 225 for two hours....first time was a little strong as I had fresh smoke going, next time turned out less smoky and absolutely delicious. I love me some smoked pepper mac n cheese.

If I knew how I would link this, but go to the Throw Down 2010 week 35, MadcityJim winning entry is the BEST MacnCheese recipe I have ever made. No process cheese just pure goodness. If someone with better computer skills then I can link this, it is worth sharing with everyone again.
