This is a layered four cheese recipe that my very good friend gave me. She knew I didn't like to cook and this was pretty simple to do. Now I make this dish every Thanksgiving.

This is absolutely my FAVORITE mac & cheese recipe. I've given it to countless friends & family members and all of them have fallen in love with it as well. I did want to add that I put the egg in a measuring cup, beat it, and then added the milk to measure one cup because there was a lot of milk left in the bottom when I made it the first time. I seemed a little soupy to me. Now it's perfection every time. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. Read More

Something about this recipe isn't right... I baked for about 22 minutes and it was extremely runny. I don't think an entire cup of milk is needed; Next time I'd use only 1/4 to 1/2 a cup if any at all. Read More

Loved it! I must have tried a dozen mac and cheese recipes but will make this from now on. I took the advice of others and added a teaspoon of garlic salt; also I used 2 eggs because I like a firmer mac and cheese casserole. I used a whole 8 oz. package of macaroni and it was perfect. Maybe there was a typo error and the writer meant to use 8 ounces of macaroni (1/2 of a 1 pound package.) Read More

This was great! Next time I will have to increase the macaroni if I use this much cheese. Also I mixed the eggs and milk together before pouring it over the macaroni. Read More

My family loved this recipe! I baked it for 20 minutes then stirred it up added a little more cheese to the top and baked it for about 5 more minutes. Next time I will combine the milk and egg as suggested. Read More

I really like this one! So did my husband. Better than from a box and SO easy. Followed recipe and I followed the advice of others and added a little garlic salt to the top (about a tsp). Also put a beaten egg into the 1 cup measuring cup and added milk to fill that wasn't too soupy. Excellent! Wouldn't change a thing. Update: I've made this like 20 times now for parties/get togethers. It is a hit! Everyone loves it. Goes well with just about anything but especially cookouts. Read More

Wow! If you are looking for a scrumptious mac and cheese this is the one! It is a great baked dish not too mushy like some of the others. I added about 2 spoonfuls of Italian bread crumbs on the top about the last 10 minutes and that added a great punch to it. Read More
