This mac & cheese is incredible! You have no idea what a pain it is for me to make mac & cheese here....2-3 different kinds to make everyone happy. This one pleased everyone! Yay! The only issue I had was the amount of butter. I, literally, poured 1/2c of butter off when it came out of the oven. I'm going to try halving the butter next time. That's the only thing holding this back from being a 5 star recipe for me. Yum! Thank you!!! EDIT: I now make this on a regular basis & use 1 stick of butter only. To us, it's perfection!!
Made this mac n cheese bake per recipe and my family loved it. My wife and mother-in-law and oldest daughter thought it was great as is. My youngest and I, both charter members of BLAm (Bacon Lovers of America) will insist upon the smokey, cured goodness of pig candy being in the recipe next time. I think I might add a little fresh thyme as well as bacon next time I make this, and I will make it again. I think it is a very good rendition of a classic.
We really enjoyed this. I followed Lisa's recommendation and cut back on the butter. I will make this again and again!
This is absolutely delicious! This recipe prompted me to write a review, which I rarely do - it's that good! I made only a few changes. I used only 1/3 stick of butter because that's what I had, and it was just the right amount. I also used shredded Colby Jack and mild Cheddar, and I used lite sour cream instead of regular. It came out AMAZING and both my husband and mom loved it. Will definitely make again!
This is by far the best Mac and Cheese I've ever had and I now claim it as "my Mac n Cheese" when I refer to making it. I have made this recipe several times. I actually skip all the steps of mixing things separately and just mix everything together when the macaroni is done and it turns out perfectly. My mouth waters every time I think of this recipe. Thanks for sharing!
10 10 16 ... http://allrecipes.com/recipe/230283/tasty-baked-mac-n-cheese/ ... Thanks to Nadine M of the Buzz for recommending this! This is the front runner in the Mac n Cheese competition. :) 'Really like the ease of prep with this. I'm tempted to say it's "Guy-easy," but that might not be "nice." :D The only thing all tasters agreed on that would be done next time is the put all the cheese in it, not so much on top. I didn't do the sauce on the bottom. 'Just mixed it together & greased the pan. I used 1 stick, 1/2c butter, adding 2T to the pasta; only sharp cheese. My cream cheese was previously frozen so a little funny textured (looked like what Greek yogurt tastes like, if ya know what I mean. :D) so I added 4 ounces, half the block. The cayenne isn't too hot; but, for little kids, you might want to have half without or less. PS This is guy-easy! ;) Note4Me: 8.14 The sauce needs to be heated enough so the cheese will melt. It doesn't have to be hot, but melted then added to the pasta. Kimber liked 8oz uncooked elblows & 6oz uncooked wide egg noodles. :)
I used half and half instead of regular milk to make it creamier(1 1/4 cups). I added 1/4 cup of mozzarella and Parmesan to the main mixture too. and sprinkled the bottom of baking dish and the top of the mixture with parmesan. Cover with foil when baking to prevent from drying out.
I made this amazing dish for my son's first birthday party, and we expected around 40 guests so I doubled the ingredients - except the milk. I raised the oven to 400 degrees and baked for 25 minutes. Not only did the kids eat every last bite, but the parents asked for the recipe! It was definitely a hit!
I made this last night and it was wonderful used the cheeses I had on hand mozzarella and sharp cheddar. This was so easy no roux to make no waiting for the cheese to melt. I mixed it up in the afternoon put it in the fridge til evening and baked according to directions. I won't be making any other mac and cheese recipe from now on...Thank you Eva
I liked this recipe and will make it again, but I will not put in the cayenne next time. My three year old didn't enjoy it as much as he would have otherwise. He agreed that he liked it enough to do it again, but said "Next time don't put pepperoni (pepper). Only for Pizza." So yeah, out of the mouth of babes, no cayenne.
