Made with FOUR cheeses. I cut one cup of cheddar out and replaced it with one cup of asagio. Fastastic. Very rich, but fantastic. We had this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit!
I grew up making homemade mac-n-cheese using a white sauce and then adding in cheddar cheese and macaroni, so that part was easy. I had never added other types of cheeses and that really made a wonderful difference in flavor!!! My DS, addicted to noodles, loved this and went back for seconds. I only made 1/2 the recipe and made everything upto the broiling part, then 16 yo DS had a change in plans, so I put it in fridge until today. I left it covered in 350 degree oven for about 35 minutes, then popped it under broiler for a few minutes and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing Lainey. Made for PRMR tag.
Yummy. Next time I will put it in a flat baking pan so I can put more topping on - the topping is great! I like a bit stronger flavor so I think it might be better with a little spicing up - replace some of the Jack with cheddar or asagio or add some dry mustard.
terrific mac and cheese. I didn't use the breadcrumbs bc i like to get the crunchy browned top by putting loads more grated cheese on it and broiling but other than that did to directions. My friend and i polished off half the pan together and i didn't cut the recipe in half
This is a good easy casserole. This is my first time making homemade macaroni and cheese so I don't really know how it is supposed to taste. My family felt that this is a little bland. Made for PRMR.
Made this OUTSTANDING MAC & CHEESE for my mac-loving neighbors, but it was minus a generous portion (you know, taste-testing!) when I took it over! Loved the combo of cheeses (making it OH SO CREAMY) as well as the crispy topping AND the ease of preparation, IN SPITE OF the intimidation from the long list of preparation steps! Will definitely be making this one again, just for us right here at home! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed just for the 'HALIBUT!']
OMG Lainey, you have really produced a winner in this Mac and Cheese. As you mentioned you do have to ignore conventional wisdom about cooking pasta, but I followed this recipe to the T, with the exception of making half of it. The end result was a beautiful creamy dish with a wonderful flavor of the three cheeses and the addition of a crunchy top. Warning, as with all broiling, watch closely that last minute. I had a couple of places get a little toasted, but no matter, it was good anyway. I broiled mine on low broil for 7 minutes, should have been 6 for my oven. Thanks Lainey. Made for PRMR
I think lainey forgot an important part of this recipe--TO BAKE IT!! I tried it her way just under the broiler and it was very runny underneath. I then baked it at 400 for twenty minutes and it was much better, although not as tasty a recipe as I hoped! Still searching for the best MAC& CHEESE!!
