    Great exactly as posted. Made some changes the second time I made it based on my family's preferences. Cooked bacon with onions & jalapeño with a little molasses to carmalize. Also used a combination of cheddar, Colby, jack and cream cheese. And put crushed potatoe chips on top. Amazing! My hubby is not a fan of Mac and cheese or gluten free but he went back for seconds! Thanks for an awesome recipe!  -  12 Jun 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious! I followed the recipe with a small exception; I used GF bread crumbs in the topping. I made it for our family Christmas lunch for my cousin who is gluten intolerant. I ate it as well and it was as good as our regular mac and cheese. This is definitely a keeper.  -  20 Dec 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delicious. I did add MacLarens sharp cheese to the recipe to make up some of the cheese in the main dish and also some worchestershire sauce (1 1/2 tsp.) I will definitely make this again. Everyone loved it.  -  24 Jul 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
