- 1 cup 1/2 & 1/2
- 1 cup heavy cream
- pinch nutmeg
- Bay leaf
- salt & pepper
Pour cream & 1/2&1/2 into a medium size heavy saucepan on medium heat. Add white wine, nutmeg and salt & pepper and bay leaf. As liquid begins to heat ( 10 minutes) add shredded cheese ( except the reversed cup of Gruyere) Stir constantly until cheese melts and creates a cheese sauce. Reduce heat and carefully remove bay leaf and add pasta, bacon and chives gently mix well. Turn off heat and put into backing dish ( around 2-4 inches high) top with the reserved cup Gruyere and a little bacon to garnish. Bake for 15- 20 minutes at 375 until top bubbles. Serve!
