REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
This is the best southern, flavorful, not overly creamy baked mac and cheese I have ever made. Extremely easy!

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Maybe I've just only had "meh" mac and cheese before because I never thought much about it. Made this recipe yesterday and was blown away. I liked the combination of cheeses and I think the ranch mix and sugar changed the flavor enough that it was really impressive. I'll be making this again very soon!

Like everyone, I've eaten hundreds of Mac 'n Cheeses, but I've never been to the OK Cafe. For this dish alone, though, I'd be a steady customer! It's delicious....and as a "copycat", it's easy, I had all the ingredients anyway, it's only about 45 minutes from scratch to done, and did I say it was delicious? I got a couple of bites, but husband and two kids ate it ALL and practically licked the dish! This one's a keeper, friends.
