Mac 'n Cheese - nutmeg vs. mustard, egg vs. not?

BabyLitigator | Nov 5, 2005 07:59 PM

So I've made two mac 'n cheese recipes over the past few months (Joyce Goldstien and Alton Brown) and seen a bunch, and found two main variations.

Spice-wise, I've seen nutmeg in some versus a mustard/paprika/onion in the bechamel.

Sometimes it's an egg-based casserole, sometimes just the cheese sauce.

And of course, there is always the question of cheese.

Of the few I've tried, I prefer nutmeg, and am agnostic on the egg.

Any thoughts/preferences/alternatives?
