Amanda's Mac & Cheese.. sort of



So... I totally ganked this recipe from Amanda over at What We're Eating, and it became what me and Dave were eating. I had to modify it though... since I didnt have all the fancy pants ingredients she used.... but I did have enough stuff stashed away in the fridge that I could make something close enough!

I modified the cheeses... used Parmesan, Gorgonzola, Valencay (chevre), and Double Gloucester... I also used plain button mushrooms in place of the crimini and shitake... cheapo canned Italian bread crumbs in place of the panko.... nixed the truffle oil... but hey! I did have some goose fat in the freezer from Christmas so I used that in place of the bacon fat! MUAHAA!! Oh.. and I also threw in some chopped up leftover turkey.

Totally awesome recipe Amanda!!!!

Who knew mac and cheese could be brought to these heights? I only recently learned that there are people who make it from scratch. Is this a Southern thing?
