Best Ever Macaroni and Cheese

Perfect for a cold winter's night, this macaroni and cheese is a far cry from the supermarket variety. Rich and creamy with a slight kick, it is rounded off with the topping's crunch. I like to use a variety of cheeses in this. I have used bleu, gouda, gruyere, swiss, cheddar, smoked cheeses, gouda, and others, all with fabulous results. This recipe freezes wonderfully and is just as delicious when reheated in the microwave.6 cups of cheese approximately equals 2 - 2.25 lbs.Feel free to substitute turkey bacon, or use butter (6 TBS) instead of bacon grease.
