    By far the best macaroni and cheese recipe I've tried. Normally I follow the recipe exactly. But once in a while I add whatever cheeses I have on hand. Still comes out great! Family favorite for sure.

    This is very much like my mom's macaroni and cheese recipe. I am lucky enough to have one of her old cookbooks with this recipe written in Mama's hand inside the front cover. We still have that on special occasions when the family is all gathered and it's always a hit.

    Made this recipe for the 4th time this year and it was great. I halfed the recipe and it was the perfect size for a family of 4 adults with left overs for 2 lunches the next day. Served with candied yams, sauted kale, and ham. I think using freshly shredded cheese vs. the kind already shredded in the bag makes a difference. The bag kind seems to not be as creamy.

    This is a great baked macaroni and cheese. They can usually be pretty dry, but this wasn't. It's not wet per se, but it's cheesy and buttery! A+

    Can this be made one or even two days before, and then just re-heated in oven the morning of?

    Bad recipe. I made this for the Girl Scout troops for the 1st time based on the reviews. It didn't taste bad but the presentation was not good. The milk curdled up so it did not look appetizing. How embarrassing. All ingredients were recently bought. I've had better Mac & Cheese made in crock pots! If someone knows why it curdled up, please let me know how to fix it.

    Thanks a million for this recipe! It is the BEST mac & cheese ever. I used plain sea salt instead of seasoned salt and it didn't materially affect the finished dish. Yummy, yummy yummy -- and it reheats really well. I make a full batch even though it is just my husband and I. The leftovers are wonderful.

    Just made this with Christmas prime rib. It was outstanding! Best mac & cheese recipe ever. It turned out perfectly and was a great compliment to the rib roast. I will definitely keep this recipe. Thank you John Legend!
