“Picked up this recipe at Tillamook cheese factory in Tillamook, Oregon. It's from Priscilla Yee, the Regional 2005 Mac & Cheese recipe Contest winner. The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs mixed with 2 Tbsp. of butter and 1/3 cup chopped toasted hazelnuts. You are supposed to bake it for 20-25 minutes with the crumbs and nuts but I didn't care for the bread crumb texture and couldn't find hazelnuts in Wyoming, and with my minor changes, you can prepare the entire dish on the stovetop!”
