This is a recipe for macaroni and cheese that is very easy to assemble and my family can't get enough. No making a separate sauce for this one.

This has a nice cheese crust that forms on top, but stays creamy underneath

Not great. I would try a different cheese if I made it again.

Don't use Sharp cheddar and don't use 1.75c milk. Try 1 or 1.25c. Will try one more time diff cheese and less milk.

Make sure you use real butter and at least 2 percent milk. The bread crumbs are really optional and was added mostly for a little extra crunch. The flavor of this is great even without the topping. [I posted this recipe.]
