This is a WONDERFUL mac'n'cheese recipe and very simple to make. I found the smoked cheddar in the deli/gourmet section of the supermarket and grated it myself. I made sure to use whipping cream as suggested in the recipe. I did not make any change whatsoever to the recipe, and it came out perfect.
I will be making this recipe again.
Not a keeper, IMO. While I cut down the amount of smoked cheddar by subbing 1/2 sharp, it wasn't very "cheesy". Wouldn't recommend.
This is a great recipe. I doubled the amount of sauce because I prefer a creamier mac 'n cheese. I also used whole wheat elbows and drained the tomatoes so that the sauce wasn't overwhelmed with a tomato taste.
This is really really delicious. I have made this several times. I add 1/2 cup milk because I like it creamier. When I can't find / don't want to pay for smoked cheddar I add 1 - 2 tsp liquid smoke (which I've never been a fan of but it works really well in this dish), I have also used a Tablespoon or so of pureed chipotle peppers for the heat. Yum. Great recipe!
i added some sweet italian sausage and fresh basil which made tasted fantastic
OMGoodness! Be prepared to lick the spoon and pot after and during this one! I used table cream (18%) and it didn't curdle. I only used 1/4 of the cheese called for as the smoked cheddar and the other 3/4 cheese asked for I used old cheddar. I used 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes because that's all I had. Next time I will try bacon in this and some fresh cut tomatoes sprinkled on top when serving:) Kids Looovved it!
love it but I cheat completely, using this recipe just as a base. I can only imagine how fabulous it would be if I didn't cheat. I just used a box of plain ole Kraft Mac n Cheese, then added the mustard, green onions, smoke flavoring, drained tomatoes, etc. Basically just a doctored up box of mac n cheese but fabulous!
Made it for the first time tonight. Used panko instead of the regular breadcrumbs, will make it again but might need to tweak it a bit....
