Woweeeee! This Mac & Cheese is everything I wanted. Cheesy, creamy and gooey. Per other reviews I used 2 cans of soup, 1 1/2 cups milk and 1/2 cup of sour cream. I heated the milk and added everything (including most of the cheese)to the noodles after draining them and they blended perfectly. Put the rest of the cheese on top and sprinkled with paprika. Don't forget to salt the water when you boil your noodles or they will be flavorless. No leftovers here! P.S. I used sharp cheddar.


Made twice with great reviews from my guests. Use a box 1/2 mac (24oz), two cans of cheese, 2 cups chedder/jack, 1 cup milk and a couple of scoups sour cream, little pepper and bread crumbs on top. A couple of min under the broiler at the end and excellent. The bread crumbs and extra cheese really make it.


I used this recipe and baked the macaroni and cheese in cupcake liners for my son's birthday party. HUGE HIT. The kids could help themselves and throw away the wrap when they were done. I mixed the shredded cheese with the noodles and soup to make it extra cheesy, I used 1 tlbsp salt when stirring it up. I put sprinkle of cheese and pinch of bread crumbs on top of each "cupcake". They were soooo cheesey and were gone instantly! Thanks for the great receipe. It's definately a keeper in my house! The boxed stuff can stay in the cupboard from now on.
