There is a reason this recipe is called NYO, or not your own. J. Alexander's NYO Mac and Cheese is a mac and cheese recipe that tastes just as good as one from the restaurant. You can make this recipe in small dishes and serve it as a side, or make it in a bigger dish and call it the main course. The chicken soup base gives it a nice, hearty flavor. The panko breadcrumb topping adds a crispy texture to the otherwise smooth and silky pasta. This cheesy, creamy pasta dish is sure to be the talk of the town when you serve it to your family and friends.

This is certainly one of the more elaborate macaroni and cheese recipes I've ever encountered, but it sounds like it would be a great dish to make for special occasions like a holiday dinner. The use of Gruyere cheese is different and not what I'd usually expect to find in a macaroni and cheese dish. I'm definitely holding this recipe on the side and I may give it a try for Thanksgiving since we usually cook some special and time-consuming things for that dinner.

Who knew mac and cheese could be even better!

What a great idea. Sounds like a fun twist on regular mac and cheese.

I could eat mac and cheese every day of the week! This recipe looks delish.

I love this side at J. Alexander's and love that this recipe doesn't have fake ingredients...I prefer homemade and less preservatives!

This sounds like a really rich recipe and definitely worth trying! Chicken soup base will make this dish flavorful.

This mac and cheese sounds good, but I probably would only make it once in awhile because of some of the special ingredients (Gruyere cheese) and number of steps involved. Also, I'd probably omit the bread crumbs and try thickening with cornstarch instead of flour.

Chicken soup base? I'm in.

I'm always up for trying a new mac and cheese recipe. This looks great!
