Dorie's Baked Macaroni and Cheese
This is what I made last year for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit with the family. It made a ton but we fed close to 25 people on it. This is a great recipe for large group gatherings. Oh yeah, this is definitely not for somebody that wants to watch their weight!
