    This version of mac and cheese is now my favorite "go to" recipe. I suggest following it exactly the way it is written the first time. It reminds me a bit of the mac n cheese at places like Luby's cafeteria, or Furr's.

    Once you learn this style, you can sub regular milk for the evaporated, and follow the same method.The only thing I have changed is doing half cheddar, half Velveeta. But that is just a personal preference.

    Agree with "Mommie" completely. This wonderful mac-n-cheese recipe takes no longer to make than boxed mac-n-cheese but the difference is unbelievable. I do change up the cheese a bit, not a huge fan of just using sharp cheddar. I like to use a little sharp cheddar and mix it with mild cheddar, Gruyere or CoJack. If you love mac-n-cheese, try this recipe.

    LOVE THIS RECIPE! Simple ingredients, easy to make, and I'm not using several pots, pans & utensils to clean afterwards! My family loves it and it's always gone when I take to potluck. If you want a baked taste to this, you could always put it in a casserole dish and put in the oven until done to your liking. I usually do not have time to go through all the steps of making mac & cheese using several different kinds of cheese, making bechamel sauce, making a crumb topping, heating up the kitchen using the oven, etc.
