If you are my friend and you live in D.C. and you have a baby or surgery, this is what I bring to your house to say “welcome baby” or “get well soon.” I have lost count of how many times I’ve made this and brought it to someone’s house. I’ve also made it for my own family for birthday parties and group get-togethers. It’s comfort food at its best. Children and adults love it. And you will, too. Make no mistake – this is a splurge, but it’s well worth it.

Have you frozen this Mac and Cheese? Sometimes when bringing over a meal to someone it’s nice to give them something that they have on deck in the freezer. Same goes for having some back up meals at our home. I was wondering if it would work O.K. with the tomatoes and especially the breadcrumbs on top. I did make this fresh with cubed ham for our family a few weeks ago and it was a huge hit!
Yes, I have. It freezes beautifully. I do not freeze it with the tomatoes and breadcrumbs. I’d recommend freezing it right after the last step, in which you add the tomato slices. When it’s time to bake it, just top it with the tomatoes and breadcrumbs, then bake. If baking directly from the freezer, allow about an hour and 15 minutes. If thawing first, about 35-40 minutes should do the trick.
Thanks for replying! That is what I was thinking but thought it might be best to ask the expert! Love your site.
