This was a great creamy plain old fashioned macaroni and cheese. The first time I made it I used whipping cream and sour cream in place of all the milk. Wow... creamy, comforting and fattening. I did not use garlic powder because even though I love it, it did not sound good in mac and cheese. I had no ground mustard so I left that out, and the amount of pepper sounded way off base so I only used 1/4-1/2 t until it tasted good to me. I also used crushed corn flakes instead of bread crumbs to the top of the casserole and drizzled the whole thing with another 1/2 cup of melted butter. I baked it about 45-50 minutes, because it was not hot and bubbly in the center at 30 minutes. Definitely use a larger pan if you have one. This went right to the top of my largest oblong glass dish.
Too much flour! The texture was PASTY!! Otherwise, a good recipe. Next time I will use less flour & really didn't need that much black pepper either. Especially when feeding this to little kids.
I made this for the family, and they lost their minds! The only changes I made were that I used 2 cups of sharp white cheddar, 2 cups of mild cheddar, and 2 cups of Gouda cheese. I also used whole wheat panko bread crumbs on top and I had more than enough crumbs left over. I also added a few cups of leftover ham that was in the fridge, which I browned well first. I had no issues with the texture of the sauce; it was perfectly smooth and creamy. Be sure to stir constantly as you add the milk and while it's thickening.
made this for x mas dinner it was a hit!
This recipe is fantastic. I don't change it one bit, it tastes like old fashioned mac and cheese.
This mac & cheese was Delicious! Starting with a rue makes for a creamy sauce. I used the suggested 1 & 1/2 cups of panko on top. Next time, I will reduce the amount to 1 cup. I took a pole of my 6 guests as we were eating. Everyone gave this recipe "two thumbs up".
Very good. But I ended up with too much cheese sauce. I never thought mac and cheese could be too creamy, but it was.
My family loves this recipe. I did change the amount of cheese. I use four cups of cheddar and one cup of mozzarella. It is not runny at all. My kids can't get enough.
