1 (16 ounce) package
ground black pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups
shredded white Cheddar cheese
day-old bread, torn into small pieces
salt and pepper to taste
After reading other suggestions, I put in 3 times the amount of cheese, used heavy cream instead of milk and did the Ritz cracker topping. This turned out to be the best mac & cheese I have ever had!
Easy, cheesy, creamy, dreamy! Kids love it, adults will too!
This was my first time making mac and cheese from scratch. Doubled cheese as others suggested and added a bit more salt and pepper. topped with 1 sleeve of crushed Ritz crackers mixed with the 4 Tbls of melted butter. Will make again and add ham or bacon to it.
Easy to make cheesy delight. I used Gruyere, Fresh Parmesan and Sharp Cheddar and made the topping of 1 sleeve crushed Ritz crackers tossed with .5 stick melted butter. YUM!
Found this easy to make and quite tastey. I did make a few adjustments. I added Gorgonzola, Parmesan, and a bit more Cheddar. I also used Italian seasoned bread crumbs with a drizzle of olive oil for the top. As for the comment on this being a runny sauce, I did not find that. The key was letting the flour, butter, and milk part cook long enough to thicken. All in all, a great recipe and I will use it again.

This went together quickly and tasted good. Be sure to cook the butter/flour mixture (roux) for at least one minute to cook away the floury taste. A whisk works better here, and when adding the milk and cheese, than a spoon. I used at least twice as much cheese as called for, and used extra sharp cheese for a great cheesy taste. To compensate for the extra cheese, I should have added 1/2 cup more milk to make the final dish creamier. On top, I mixed some more grated cheddar with the buttered crumbs and this was probably the best part of the dish. Thanks!
Cooked the sauce as directed then added a can of cream of chicken soup, put in a dish, crumbled seasoned crutons (butter & garlic) as a top layer and sprinkled with melted butter. Put in oven for 30min. My family loved it.
