"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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!
