Swiss Macaroni and Cheese with Smoked Sausage

Need a little weeknight comfort food?  This one’s for you then.

This recipe came about when I looked up from my computer and realized it was already 5:30 and I hadn’t started dinner.  (And no, the irony that I’m a food blogger and still have this problem is not lost on me.)

I had a smoked sausage in the fridge and a daughter begging for mac & cheese.  But I didn’t want to make the usual kind.  A rummage through the cheese drawer yielded a block of Swiss and a new recipe came into being.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. I’m trying this tonight!

  2. We made this a few nights ago and it was yummy! I think we’ll tweak it next time to fit with our rice cooker mac & cheese recipe, simply because I’m lazy. :)

  3. Tried this tonight and WOW was it good! Just added a little salt and pepper to taste. Definitely will make this again!
