"I got this great dish from my Mother, who in turn got it from my Grandmother. This is a staple in our family throughout the year and especially on holidays. My Mother comes from a small town in Mississippi and all of her sisters make this dish the same way. Enjoy this Southern-styled twist on macaroni and cheese." — Chris

I googled a Mac & cheese receipt and yours looked easy and the reviews sold me. It was for a church group X-mas dinner. I doubled the receipt and could not wait to try. By the time I got to my Mac & cheese on the buffet my huge Casserole was about gone. Everyone was raving how good it was.
Thanks Chris for posting.
Oh, my wife was very skeptical on how good it could be. She apologized and agreed it was easy and a hit. "Dodged that bullet".
Sounds like a good midweek mac and cheese recipe but true southern mac and cheese recipes never begins with a processed cheese mix!!!
Hey Chris, this is awesome mac and cheese, we love it here. Anyway only a few comments, we did a triple batch (obvously more then one of us), I'd recommend keeping the butter at a 1/2 cup its more then enough. We also used mozarella in addition to the cheddar, it was awesome. The families own personal favorite is lobster with the mac and cheese, but you sothern folks could definitely substitute crawfish, I know I would if I could get them. But just like the receipe says this is one awesome mac and cheese definitely 5 stars thanks for sharing Chris.
This was the PERFECT recipe. I have tried dozens, and this is definitely the BEST southern mac n cheese casserole ever. I made it for the guys while they were watching football, and they were licking their plates clean.
Chris, I made your recipe January 6th at a dinner celebration for what would have been my mama's 94th birthday party. Mama passed away in November. Friends and family raved about the mac and cheese, and there wasn't a spoonful left (I doubled the recipe). Mac and cheese was one of my mama's favorites. Anne-Marie
This is pretty good, but I would use about half the amount of butter next time.
This was wonderful! I doubled the servings and made it for the first time for family on Chirstmas Eve. HIT! As, someone suggested...I too, reduced the butter down to 1/2 cup..I may possibly do even a little less next time. BUT, this is a keeper for our family now! Been waiting on a M and C recipe like this one!
I made this for my sons football team, I made over 40 servings and it was all gone! Great and easy recipe, the best I have found! Thanks for sharing!
