I made this recipe for a church gathering and everyone raved about it. The only thing I changed was using less brown sugar. Everyone said it was the best mac & cheese they ever had!
I am sorry. This was down right awful. You are better off just sticking to making a cheese sauce via rue. Brown sugar does not go with cheese, and contrary to what other reviews may have said the cheese soup tastes very processed.
This was delicious! I usually don't like baked mac n' cheese, but this was perfect. I didn't use the brown sugar, as another reviewer suggested, and it was still fantastic! The best part about it for me was the fact that it didn't dry out when I reheated it for lunch. Also, I had never tried Havarti cheese before, so I was nervous about it, but I will definitely use the cheese and this recipe again!!!
This was a great recipe as is, but the second time I doubled the recipe, omitted the brown sugar, added green onion instead of red (no boiling)used up some monterey jack cheese with the cheddar and others, used 2 cans of lower fat cream of celery and 1 can of lower fat cream of chicken with the 2 cans of cheese soup. I also added 1 cup of 1%milk. I threw in a pound of diced up ham that was left over too. My family ate it for lunch the next day and when it was almost gone they fought over the last batch. Now I will keep the cupboards stocked with those soups!
SoOOO good, and super easy. I found it really addicting and almost ate the entire thing myself throughout the day. A+
I really like this recipes! I had one small change, I used one can of cream of chicken because I didn’t have three cans of cream of cheese soup. Not sure about the brown sugar, I think I’m going to leave it out next time. Still great!!
This was a great dish that my whole family enjoyed. This was very cheesy but without overwhelming flavors. I did not need to broil it as the top was already starting to brown at the end of the 45 minutes. Will definitely make it again.
Delicious! I tried making the same recipe with Kraft Mozza Cheddar Shredded Cheese and it was amazing!!!
