Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2012
This is hands down my all-time favorite macaroni and cheese recipe! I was hesitant to make it at first, because I had never before heard of cottage cheese or sour cream being used in mac and cheese...but, I'm so glad I gave it a shot. I found this recipe quite some time ago and I've made it many, many times since. I never change anything in the recipe -- it's perfect just the way it is. The only thing I "change" (not really a change, since it doesn't actually specify which to use) is my choice of bread crumbs. I use Italian style bread crumbs, not plain ones. The Italian flavor seems to give it a whole new layer of deliciousness. (The ONLY thing I would change, if I had to, would be the amount of bread crumbs. You could easily get away with using maybe a half a cup instead. But, I do love bread crumbs, so a full cup works for me!)

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2012
I had high hopes for this recipe, considering all the positive ratings...but, I honestly wasn't too thrilled with it. It's a lot milder than I'm used to, considering I usually make my mac and cheese with cheddar. The Velveeta paired with the American cheese...they're both really mild cheeses and made it a little bland, in my opinion. It was also a bit too peppery for my taste. Maybe I'm being a little picky, but I'm not a huge pepper fan and I found it kind of overpowering. (Making up for bland cheese?) As one person stated, I found it thickened up a bit TOO much if you let it sit for a while. But, then again, Velveeta does tend to do that. I've had that issue with Velveeta in the past and actually stopped using it for a while, for that reason. This recipe was my last attempt at making it work...and sorry to say, Velveeta, but you failed. It melts nicely, but KEEPING it melted...that's another story. Overall, I thought it was pretty middle-of-the-road. It wasn't bad, but I probably won't be making it again. I'll stick with my all-time favorite (so far): Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese. It's the most unique recipe I've seen so far (involves cheddar, parmesan, cottage cheese and sour cream) and it's definitely the best I've had so far! http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chucks-favorite-mac-and-cheese/
