Yummy mac and cheese that is so ooey and gooey. My kids go wild over this dish. It is great with anything: chicken, beef, or pork. Use any type of cheese you like; I use whatever I have in the fridge.

This turned out perfectly. The only change I made was to exclude the Worcestershire and mustard powder (my kids can detect even small traces of these) and increase the flour to tablespoons instead of teaspoons.

The taste was above average but a second serving was definitely not happening. I'm positive the reason my rating is low is because of the processed cheese. Yes it was gooey and the texture was AMAZING but because of all the processed cheese my body didn't want to digest any more. Also when I went to fetch some more the next morning it was almost frozen even though it was in the fridge and not the freezer. The ingredients tense up when put under cold. It heated up fine -- however some butter separated from the rest of the ingredients. I recommend eating it all in one night (which I don't think is possible unless you have a lot of people because of your body rejecting the processed cheese).

Couldn't ask for a better mac and cheese recipe. Delicious! I made it for my Grandson who was coming for a visit but I couldn't help sampling it myself:) I used 3 slices of American cheese cheddar and some Gruyere because that is what I had. I will always use that combo as it was perfect in my opinion.

Very good. I added 1 tsp of cayenne for a little kick. I also changed to tsps of flour to tablespoons. That seemed to thicken it up nicely.

Love it! Halved the recipe and it worked just fine. Used Cotija cheese in place of Parmesan and cheddar and Mexican blend shred instead of processed cheese (it s what I had on hand). Great flavor combo. Only used the teaspoon of flour and it worked fine. Keeping this one!

Very good! We had some for lunch (it was a bit on the thinner side) and the rest I put into a casserole dish and reheated in the oven for dinner which thickened it up nicely so I would probably do that again. The family enjoyed loved this so it's a keeper YUM! Thanks for sharing.:)

This was so good! Every one at church wanted some homemade Mac and cheese and this was a hit. Some people said they never eat it and raved at how good it was. I didn t have all the ingredients so a quick run to the store took away time to bake it. I omitted the eggs and heated the cheeses and milk mix on the stove. If I had more time I would have sautéed some Sausage and onion and browned some Bacon on top for extra kick. It was so creamy yet it had good texture. This will definitely be my go to recipe for homemade Mac and cheese. Thanks for sharing!
