Recipe by CASS CLARK
"This is the best mac 'n cheese ever! I started out by going through the recipes on this site and when I found one I wanted to try, I was putting together the first few ingredients and said, 'Ya know what would be great to add to this...' and that's where the 'Best Mac 'N Cheese Ever' was created. By the time I was done and it was served at our New Year's Day lunch everyone was raving about how delish it was. Try this easy recipe for a down-home Southern taste of the Best Baked Mac 'N Cheese Ever!"

1 (16 ounce) container
ground black pepper
shredded Cheddar cheese
shredded Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese blend
processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®), torn into 4 pieces
Step 3 does not mention about adding the evaporated milk so don't forget to add it. I made this for a Christmas Eve party and everyone enjoyed it.
I wouldnt say it was the best mac n cheese but it was ok. Mine was a little dry for me i was hoping it was gonna be more creamy ill play around with the recipe maybe add more milk and less eggs. Also it was a little bland for me needs wayyyy more seasoning!! I did crumble bacon on the top that was the best part!
A very good Mac & Cheese. I may cut back the eggs to one or two next time and add a little more milk to keep it less firm and more saucy.
This was delicious. I made it w/o the evaporated milk b/c I forgot it b/c it wasn't listed in the directions, only in the list of ingredients, but it was still wonderful. I had nothing left at the end of the meal.
I used 4 tbs butter and some flour and made a roux, then added the evap milk to make a white sauce. Then I melted the processed cheese in this, added the eggs and sour cream that I had wisked together, then added the cheese and cooked mac. I also added chopped ham bits, the rest of the seasoning and threw it in the oven. I think it turned out awesome!! It turns out the season salt is KEY to the great taste, it takes the edge off the sour cream flavor. I also just used random cheese that needed to be used in addition that it called for.
Easy to make. I doubled the recipe and it was a Huge hit it for my party. For easy clean up I used a disposable aluminum tray and was perfect to toss out EMPTY tray. I didn't use as much cheese and also added diced up grilled Spam into it. So good!!!
I know it is never done but my mother always put diced onion in mac and cheese and I do too. Gives it such a sweet, cheesy taste. Everyone always comments about the onions and how good it is. Give it a try.
I gave this 4 stars because it does need to be tweeked slightly. I only use 2 eggs and omit the velveeta cheese on top. It's so cheesey as it is! This is our fav mac n cheese in my house now and I add things to it sometimes. The best is 1/2 lb of turkey bacon, cubed and microwaved then added to the mix before baking. I also like to add broccoli florets too.
