Step 7: Cook and enjoy!

Cook for approximately 12 minutes, or until the top layer of the mac & cheese turns golden brown.

Allow to cool and enjoy! 

A few notes: 

(1) this recipe produces a fairly dry mac & cheese.  For those who prefer a creamier mac & cheese, consider adding more milk. 
(2) The cooking times were the ones prescribed in the TV program.  When I did this, it did not produce the thick brown layer on top.  Consider cooking at a slightly lower temperature for a bit longer, followed by turning on the broiler for a few minutes if you would like to recreate the crust shown on the TV program. 
(3)  This makes for great leftovers!  Simply add 1-2 tablespoons of milk to the mac & cheese and microwave until warm.
Made this for my department Christmas party last night and it was a big hit!!
<p>So glad to hear it! Thank you for sharing.</p>
OMG! I love The Union's Mac 'n Cheese, and I just made this. It tastes exactly the same. My family went crazy, especially since I've been trying to recreate this dish to no avail. It's amazing!
Thanks for the comment Marie! I still haven't had it, but it's great to get the feedback.
best recipe ever, especially when you add 6-7 pieces of well cooked crunchy bacon (chopped up)!
I'm glad you liked it, and agree that bacon would make it better!<br>
Oh yeah. So good. Dinner tonight
I saw this episode of D^3, and I think I'll try this next time. <br><br>That being said, I add Andouille sausage and Roma tomatoes (with a goodly amount of cayenne pepper) to my version...<br><br>So far I've gotten good reviews (folks asking for the recipe, which amounts to me saying &quot;Well... it's hard to explain...&quot;)<br>
You had me at CHEESE! I just can't say no to it!
