The parchment paper being the non-stick layer? Part of the fun is scraping bits of cheese from the bottom of the DO.

Must try the recipe...rarely see Mac and cheese without american "cheese".

Yes, the DO is fairly new so I wanted to build up the seasoning a bit more before the cheese scraping fun.


A lot of opportunity to make this one your own with your favorite cheeses and smoking wood.  I substituted the parmesan and 4 Italian cheese for Velveeta in the original recipe and added bacon from another recipe. I smoked with hickory for all three hours.  Next time I might use a milder smoke or not use smoke the entire 3 hour bake.


Hard to go too wrong with this comfort food.
