condensed Cheddar cheese soup
shredded Colby cheese
Woweeeee! This Mac & Cheese is everything I wanted. Cheesy, creamy and gooey. Per other reviews I used 2 cans of soup, 1 1/2 cups milk and 1/2 cup of sour cream. I heated the milk and added everything (including most of the cheese)to the noodles after draining them and they blended perfectly. Put the rest of the cheese on top and sprinkled with paprika. Don't forget to salt the water when you boil your noodles or they will be flavorless. No leftovers here! P.S. I used sharp cheddar.
Woefully bland. Tasted like Campbell's soup and nothing else. After an endless parade of additions, including a tiny dab of mustard, some freshly grated nutmeg, a dash of cayenne, several splashes of half-and-half, a heaping spoonful of sour cream, a generous handful of grated extra sharp cheddar and some grated Parmesan, this finally came around to tasting respectable. Much better and infinitely easier just to make your own white sauce and add grated/shredded cheese plus seasonings you like, stirring until cheese melts, then combining with the elbows. Unless you're into the flavor of Campbell's soup, throw this one back.
Made twice with great reviews from my guests. Use a box 1/2 mac (24oz), two cans of cheese, 2 lbs chedder/jack, 1 cup milk and a couple of scoups sour cream, little pepper and bread crumbs on top. A couple of min under the broiler at the end and excellent. The bread crumbs and extra cheese really make it.
I used this recipe and baked the macaroni and cheese in cupcake liners for my son's birthday party. HUGE HIT. The kids could help themselves and throw away the wrap when they were done. I mixed the shredded cheese with the noodles and soup to make it extra cheesy, I used 1 tlbsp salt when stirring it up. I put sprinkle of cheese and pinch of bread crumbs on top of each "cupcake". They were soooo cheesey and were gone instantly! Thanks for the great receipe. It's definately a keeper in my house! The boxed stuff can stay in the cupboard from now on.
Based on the previous reviews I added 2 cans of condensed cheese soup and a little extra milk. I threw in red and green bell pepper, chives, green chiles, salt, pepper, garlic and Kraft's Mexican blend cheese. I mixed the shredded cheese in with all the noodles rather than simply put it all on top and it came out creamy and delicious!!
This was very yummy. I increased the milk to 1 1/2 Cups and added approx 1/2 Cup of Sour Cream. Definitely a keeper!
This is a great recipe, I modified a little, added a can and 1/2 of soup, a cup and a 1/2 of milk, Lrge scoop of sour cream, and cheddar instead of colby, MY kids loved it, great winter comfort food....
Great recipe! I added a 1/2 cup of sour cream, salt and pepper to taste and used Sharp and Medium Cheddar instead of Colby. The Sharp Cheddar was mixed into the dish and the Medium Cheddar I sprinkled on top. It was creamy even when reheated.
