      This was pretty good, I hate the grainy mac and cheese recipes that I'm always finding. I added about 1/2 cup more cheddar then 2 slices of process of American cheese. It was very good. Thanks so much for submitting this, SaffronMeSilly.

      Not what I was looking for. It was really liquidy even after baking.

      I think the best part os this is that there's no seperate cheese sauce to make. It's quite yummy for being so low-effort! It may look a bit liquidy, but after baking, it all comes together nicely. Using sharp cheddar as written is key for the nice, cheesey flavor. Thanx for sharing Grandma's recipe. It's a keeper!
