I know you have probably figured out your Christmas Eve menu by now, so here’s a suggestion for later in Christmas Week or for New Year’s Day or whenever. I found this recipe on the Pioneer Woman’s blog, and it’s called Fancy Macaroni. It has carmelized onion, bacon, and some lovely cheeses: Gruyere, goat cheese, fontina, and parmesan….okay, so are you convinced? I made it for our dinner tonight, which we’ll enjoy after the Christmas Eve service. Right now it is sitting in the fridge, but not before I had a sample (and Doug had a sample and my sis-in-law Meredith had a sample) and we all agree it is amazing. And it’s a good thing that it’s all locked up in the fridge or I’m afraid it would be long gone by evening!

Merry Christmas dear Nancy!!! Fancy Macaroni sounds wonderful, thank you for the tip, I can use something like this during this time of year.
WOW! Thank you! I will definitely make it for our family this week.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Thank you for giving so much.
Merry Christmas! That sounds AMAZING. We will be trying that…and then trying it some more. And maybe some more after that. 🙂
Pioneer Woman has some amazingly delicious, and easy to make, recipes! Thanks for reminding me about this one!
Sounds superb! I love homemade mac and cheese!! 🙂
Question: does the Wilson family do anything special to celebrate the 12 days of Christmas leading up to Epiphany? We have been reading through the advent devotionals this year and have really enjoyed those!
We do not celebrate the twelve days of Christmas, though some Protestant churches still do. So glad you enjoyed the devotionals. The whole season is such a rich time!
Thanks Nancy! 🙂
We had this for dinner tonight with a roast, a side dish of carrots & cranberries and a cheesecake. There were leftovers of everything except the double-batch of Fancy Macaroni! Thanks for sharing this lovely dish that has taken macaroni and cheese out of the humble fare category.
