      Nice one, great idea to serve with the turkey.

      I will certainly make this one even if I only use it a evening meal.

      Thanks for the recipe.

      Bingo! What a great idea.

      For the past ten years, macaroni & cheese has been a staple on my Thanksgiving table. I've baked it with a sharp Cheddar and Monterrey Jack combination but never thought of using Gruyere - then topping it off with lobster, too?

      I'll have to make a separate dish and hide it because I know it'll disappear as soon as I put it on the table!

      I'm bookmarking this and adding Gruyere and lobster to my grocery list. Thanks for sharing.
