About this recipe: It doesn't get better than this. This is a tried and true macaroni cheese recipe that is simple and easy to make. Kids will adore it, and so will you! Use mild or mature Cheddar based on your family tastes.
The people who had trouble with this recipe definitely didn't make it correctly. Eight ounces of macaroni means one-half pound, not one cup. I mixed the cheese into the milk before adding it to the macaroni. I also used seasoned croutons in place of bread crumbs and added some bacon bits to the topping mixture. All in all, a very good recipe. - 16 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
WOW!!! This was excellent. Try using extra sharp or sharp cheddar cheese. I added about 4 oz of processed cheese (velveeta type) and about 1/2 cup sour cream just to make it even creamier. You won't taste the sour cream. Great without the breadcrumbs too. Nice comfort food. And even easier to make if you just mix everything together, then add the macaroni and mix well. This insures every piece of pasta is covered. - 21 May 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is NOT your Kraft shells and cheese or boxed macaroni. This recipe a typical southern style baked macaroni - chewy and creamy. Family members fight over the corner pieces. I weigh my pasta rather than measure and the recipe has turned out perfectly every time - everyone in the family loves this dish. - 09 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
