Rich and delicious! I agree with some of the other reviews that the amount of butter is too much. I think half the amount would suffice. I found the amount of cheese to be perfect. I like a rich and cheesy mac-n-cheese though so if you prefer a lighter version you can reduce the amount of cheese as some other reviewers have suggested. I thought this was a fantastic recipe!

I am so happy that I found this recipe. I watch Ms. Robbie on Sweetie Pies on OWN. Her food always looks delicious. I see all the great reviews and I will be using this recipe for Thanksgiving.

I can't belive I found this recipe. I saw it on diners driveins and dives and have been thinking about it since. It is incredible. A bit rich so you don't want to eat it every day but it is the best mac and cheese I've ever tried.

It was a pretty decent recipe overall, i can admit i did not like how runny it was maybe cut down on the milk and the butter, milk to 2 cups and butter to 1/2 a cup reduce the amount of velveeta to half a pound and increase other shredded cheese mixtures if you would like a more settled baked macaroni i also added 4 eggs instead.

This is, BY FAR, the best macaroni and cheese recipe ever! I have been searching forever for one that is even remotely cheesy creamy. It is a huge hit wherever I take it. After making it as written the first time, I tweaked it a bit. Instead of the evaporated milk, I used 3 cups of whole milk. I also used 1/2 cup of sour cream. I cooked the mac. Melted the butter in a large pan and added 1/4 cup of flour to make a roux. I then added the milk, 1/2# colby, 1/2# sharp cheddar, 1# of Velveeta (needed for creaminess), the eggs(beat before adding), the sugar, 1/2 cup of sour cream, salt and pepper. I stirred until it was a creamy cheese sauce. Then, I added the cooked macaroni (I use medium shells) and blended it all together before pouring it into a butter sprayed 13x9 pan. WARNING....it will overfill your pan, so you will have a little to put into another pan. Sprinkle with panko flakes and bake as directed, watching to make sure that the panko flakes only turn a medium brown. TERRIFIC!!!

I made this for our family's Christmas party and it was a BIG hit. I did add 1/4 sour cream to the top of it. It was so good, people were taking it home afterwards! I highly recommend this recipe!

I have been drooling over this mac and cheese since I saw it on the Food Network. Made it exactly as written and it came out extremely oily. When eaten hot that first day, it had good flavor, but the oil just oozed out. Forget about trying it cold. Was like eating a block of Crisco. Next time I would cut way back on the butter and use a Panko topping instead of the cheese. I'm surprised no one else has had this problem.

I saw this recipe on Food Network's DDD, and tried to write the recipe down but didn't quite make it, so I looked it up and found this one. OMG, it was so good. Like others have said, on DDD she added sour cream, so I did too. I made this for Thanksgiving dinner and converted the recipe for 25 people, in that recipe, I added 1 cup of sour cream and it really makes a difference. Everyone loved it - even my youngest son who only likes Kraft blue box (yuk, compared to this). I am so glad I found this recipe, this will be the families go to for Mac & Cheese, thats what my husband says anyway! Thanks
