Bee's Mac and Cheese Bake

"My mom made this easy, delicious mac and cheese every Thanksgiving when I was growing up. Now I can't imagine the holiday without it! I used to call it 'Ann's Mac and Cheese Bake,' but it was actually invented by my grandmother Bee."

We loved this recipe. I did not bake this as I've found that that sometimes dry's out the pasta. I added the soup and then the cheese, a chedder, mozzorella mix and let it sit two minutes to fully melt and it was amazing. Next day's leftover's were just as creamy and cheesy. I did not put in the pimentos because my daughter and grand-daughter wouldn't eat it with them. This is the one from now on. Thanks to Grandma Bee

Bland but easy.

This is the easiest mac and cheese ever! I added some dried onion bits, garlic powder and red pepper flakes for a little extra zip. It was a huge hit.

This I my recipe, and I have been experimenting. I melted 2 tablespoons butter in the microwave, mixed in the crackers, and used that for the topping. I also mixed in small frozen peas in step 3. Nice additions!

I remember this from when I was a kid too. I made as is a a trip down memory lane. next time I would add hamburger, sausage or bacon as it is a little bland. This would make a really good side dish for spicy meats.

First time I ever made home-made (not from a box) mac n cheese. I read thru many recipes and wasnt crazy about using eggs or evaporated milk. So I decided to try this one. I left out the pimentos, added diced ham, about 1 Tbsp of dried mustard and pepper to taste. I used 8oz. of sharp cheddar and 8 oz. mild because many of the recipes I looked at called for sharp. The cheese and soup did not mix well, so I added 1/4-1/2 cup of milk. I might add a little more next time. Oh and I bought Progresso Bread crumbs instead of soda crackers and only used about 2 oz. I will make it MY way again! Thx Bee!!

My family was not crazy about this - maybe with some seasonings it would have been better.

Very good! I mixed melted butter in with some wheat crackers like another reviewer said, It was very good & lots of leftovers! Yum!
