Do you mean 'Mac and cheese', or is it some type of recipe for a cannibal dish that you're after :shock: :lol: ?

I will ask my wife when she gets home
She has made a 3 cheese Mac that she got from one of our American internet buddies
Quite frankly I find all mac and cheeses way too rich.

Found it.
My wife made this after asking for an American Recipe.
Being fair here is a link to the original thread.
http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showt ... oni+cheese

ironmanerik recipe below.
8 ounces elbow macaroni
3 ounces bacon (about 3 strips), sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more for the pasta water
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
6 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated (about 11/2 cups)
2 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, grated (about 1/2 cup)
1 ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, finely grated (about 1/2 cup)

Cooking Directions
Prep time: 8 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes Inactive time: 10 minutes Total: 38 minutes
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook until just tender, about 6 minutes. Drain, and set aside.
While the pasta is cooking, heat a small sauté pan over medium heat and add the bacon. Cook until the fat is rendered and the bacon is crisp, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Drain the fat from the bacon-garlic mixture, and transfer the mixture to a medium bowl.
Add the drained macaroni to the bacon mixture, and stir to combine.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and evaporated milk together. Add the 1 /2 teaspoon salt, cayenne, nutmeg, and grated cheeses, and mix well. Add the macaroni-bacon mixture, and stir well to blend.
Transfer the macaroni to an 8- or 9-inch square baking dish or gratin dish of similar size. Using a
spoon, gently spread the mixture to form an even layer. Place in the oven and bake for 12 minutes. Remove the macaroni and cheese from the oven and let it rest for at least 10 minutes before serving

Ours was cooked in the GMG pellet Cooker.
You can use any BBQ to achieve the same outcome

How did the evaporated milk turn out - sounds a bit sweet? But then it is an American recipe..
