"A classic American comfort food. I love mac and cheese and this was a very good recipe. It was fairly quick and easy to prepare and very satisfying to eat! The only change I made was to use Panko bread crumbs for the topping as they are larger and stay crispier than regular bread crumbs. The Panko crumbs made a crunchy topping that provided a delightful contrast to the cheesy noodles. I believe that the number of servings stated in the recipe are off. This is a huge recipe and even after halving it, I still had more than enough to feed 4."- sgrishka

valturnbull 2 weeks agoNot very good. Really runny and the bread crumb topping was flavorless and was not a good addition. My kids live for Mac an cheese and they didn't even like it.
picklelover81 3 weeks agoIt was a greasy mess. The directions at the end seemed to be written by a child.
beaniebaby1102 1 month agoThis is so good. I like to add a little sour cream and a mix blend of cheeses for extra creaminess. Definitely top with panko bread crumbs for a nice crunch! Kids love it!

lglbchck 3 months agoSo so so good. Everyone who dug in couldn't get enough, although you have to be careful its really rich.
RDahiroc 4 months agoThis was a great recipe. Really rich, creamy and tasty. In addition to the recommended topping I also tossed bacon bits over it (not simulated) it made it extra special. I think the serving size is actually more for 6-8 people. I will definitely make this again.

Jaymeplus2 2 years agoThis is a great, easy mac n cheese recipe. I love the crunchy topping. I like to make this for my kids as an alternative to kraft. I like to bake it in a cupcake pan for the perfect portion size, Added to favorites :)
MrsSugar 2 years agoOverall this was a great recipe and was really tasty. The sauce didn't thicken like it said it would but that didn't change the delicious taste. Next time I will skip the butter for the topping (I used panko for the topping). It added some unnecessary fat.
adw899 2 years agoVery good Mac and cheese. I made it just like the recipe said. The only thing I would do differently next time, is to add more topping to it -probably make 3-4 times what it says I guess for the topping ingredients. Really good though. Thanks for posting the recipe.
