In a large saucepan or small stockpot over medium heat, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour and cook, whisking, until the mixture bubbles and gets frothy, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and slowly add the half and half and sherry, whisking until smooth. Return to medium heat and add the Cheddar, colby, Parmesan, pepper, and nutmeg, stirring until smooth. Stir in the macaroni and bacon. Remove from the heat and stir in the gorgonzola.

My mom always baked her mac and cheese, but I was so impatient that I liked it straight from the pot! Now I serve it that way, it is soooo creamy and cheesy.
