Yes, this is delicious! Double it for a crowd. Also, a teaspoon of dry mustard and touch of garlic powder for zip. So so good. I doubled the cheese as suggested by the comments and used Panko on the top.
I used Cabot Extra Sharp cheese and Penne pasta. I was out of milk but had heavy cream, so I used half cream and half water. Some of the best Mac and cheese I have ever had. This turned out great! I used bacon everywhere since my son loves it. So 4 pieces bacon crumbled in the cheese sauce and 4 pieces bacon crumbled with breadcrumbs on top i used all the cheese in the sauce. In place of the milk I used 2 cups chicken broth and used white pepper and no red pepper.
I haven't baked it yet but prior to baking it tasted amazing! I had to force myself to stop so there'd be plenty for dinner. If you made the recipe, please choose a star rating, too. You will not be subscribed to our email newsletter. This has me drooling. Thanks, Kate! Since most kids prefer boxed macaroni over anything else made from scratch, I am going to use this recipe at our kids camp this summer.
Brilliant and thank you. There are different flavors or sharpness to cheddar cheese- mild and sharp. Hope this helps! It will say on the packing. I want to try this recipe this week so went online to order the spices. Just one question though — is it mustard powder or mustard seed powder you use?? Kids and mac and cheese, of course. Hi Elena! If you try it, please let me know.
Hi there! I had mac and cheese on the menu for tonight and decided to try this one. It was such a bummer! I will definitely try this recipe again and just use less next time. Thanks for sharing this with us! I just checked other mac and cheese recipes and this seems like a pretty standard amount. Are you sure you grabbed mustard powder? Was it regular mustard powder?
Sorry again. I love you and your recipes so much! It was regular mustard powder — could just be that mine was stronger or something. I was just curious to see if anyone else had the same issue. No worries! Again, thank you for all you do! I love your recipes, but unfortunately this one was a miss for us. But thank you for continuing to share your talents!!
I love mac and cheese too. It uses all the ingredients that were available to the herdsmen who were looking after their cows on the mountain pastures of the slopes of the Alps: cheese, potatoes, onions, macaroni, milk or cream — and apples. The classic version is made by layering cooked potatoes and macaroni with cream and cheese, baking it in the oven and then serving it with fried onion rings and a stewed apple sauce on top. My kids will be thrilled! Your kids will love your meal plan for the week ;-. Curious to know if you like the Swiss version.
I just had it last Saturday before it finally gets warmer here! This looks so delicious! I so appreciate all the work you put into perfecting this recipe, thank you! I was so bummed — and we went right back to the blue box you mentioned :.
Love to hear what you think when you try it, Carissa. My apologies, I should have been more specific. Hi Janice, thanks for the clarification! Hi, i really want to try this. What do you mean by cream? I made this for dinner a couple nights ago, and it turned out deliciously. I was curious to see if this technique boiling the cream, then stirring in cheese for an easy sauce could work for a parmesan-based white sauce, and it totally did!
Homemade Mac and Cheese Casserole
So much easier than making a roux and spending forever whisking the ingredients. Parmesan white sauce, delicious! Made this delish dish tonight with added broccoli. Ohh, thanks for the evaporated milk suggestion. I make my Mac and cheese with a Julia Child bechemel and I agree it is slightly grainy.
The best part, is that I always have the ingredients in the house. On the other hand, I always have milk in the house, which can easily be evaporated. Plan to try it both ways, evaporated milk and whipping cream. It was 5 thumbs up at our house! It was a bit stringy with the evaporated milk, but still tasted delicious. I think it helped that the recipe had double the cheese of the bechemel kind.
Unfortunately one can only add so much cheese to a bechemel sauce before the sauce breaks. Thanks again for the recipe, it will be my new go to Mac and cheese. I will have to try it with whipping cream next time. My husband and I agreed the onion and garlic made a huge difference. When I make Mac and cheese, I use cornstarch instead of flour. I just made this, it is excellent. I am leaving my weird, grainy, bechamel using days behind and I will be using this recipe going forward! This was great! Will definitely make again and change up the veggie combo!
The sharp cheddar added a lot of flavor to the dish. It was nice not to make a bechamel sauce but the cheese seemed to harden quickly as the dish cooled down.
Baked Mac and Cheese - Dinner, then Dessert
I will definitely make this again. Hi Cookie and Kate, I did make your recipe. It was wonderful! I did make some changes because of what I had on hand. It boiled up again, I let it boil for a minute and poured it into the leftover rotini I had on hand. The sauce will burn the bottom of the pan as it is poured out.
It was so good! Very good and easy recipe. I also shredded in some carrots. My kids and I made and enjoyed this last night. It had a lot of flavor and was certainly very creamy. Thanks for a tasty and simple mac and cheese recipe! My two toddlers love it! Thank you again for another successful recipe!!! Super easy. I made a double batch for 4 under 5 yr olds and 1 adult. They demolished it. We only have enough leftovers for 2 kid servings! Are you saying to use z of pasta for This recipe? In the list of ingredients it states 8oz and also 2cups instead of 16oz?
PLease clarify; I will make this shortly. Just found this recipe and already made it twice! My husband was raised on the boxed kind and he loves this!! You can always search through reader comments to see if anyone has had any luck! Lost my recipe. So simple and tasty and I am tickled pink. I must have done something wrong. It was stringy and a mess to clean.
Mac and Cheese
Not creamy and yummy looking like the picture. Did you let the cream come to a boil, then add the cheese? It needs to be boiling and then set the timer for one minute? Thanks for replying. Hi Paula, I hope it turns out perfectly for you next time. It should turn out just like the pictures.
The cheese becomes stringy. Hi Marie, very sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied by the recipe. Did you use sharp cheddar cheese and set the timer for exactly one minute?

It sounds like your cream reduced too much—perhaps it spent too much time on the stove, or your temperature was a little too high. I am celiac and my Italian wife from Kansas City is not so I made 2 kinds of pasta regular and gluten-free and made the sauce in 2 separate iron skillets. Then mixed the pastas into the 2 skillets and, bingo, 2 delicious bowls of creamy, cheesy Mac and cheese. I am going to make this but I am confused when you said to drain the pasta and then into the empty pan add the cream and let the mixture come to a boil.
What mixture? Hi Martha! Let the cream come to a boil, then you will add in the cheese — see step three. Love the recipe. It turned out delicious and it is chilly out so it was heartwarming also. Hi Kate, Have you tried freezing this and then reheating in microwave after thawing? I am looking for a mac and cheese that will travel well. Your recipes continue to be my nightly go-to.
Just made your apple muffins last week. Delicious with no guilt. Your lentil soup is a staple aroun here. Made it last night with brussel sprout greens. I could go on…. Hi Deborah! Since this one is best consumed right away, I knot sure how that would work. I halved this recipe to make it for one and it was soooo good! Stumbled on your blog today and made this recipe for dinner. It was awesome and a definite keeper! Excited to try more! I hope to make it on Wednesday and reheat on Thursday. Do you think I could bake it as a reheat option?
Method is quick and easy. Sauce is creamy. The only issue is with the taste of the spices. They overpowered the taste of the cheddar. I will try making it again with just salt or a little tiny bit of paprika like the blue box uses. Absolutely amazing. I bought your book and have made almost every entree, have yet to be disappointed.
Hi Kate! Making this for the kids for Christmas Eve! Thanks :. Let me know how it goes! What percent of heavy cream is in this recipe…the highest we have is 35 percent for whipping cream and before that is 18 percent table cream. It might be a little more watery. Let me know what you think! Keep a close eye on it, but it might need to cook slightly longer to get the thicker consistency. The problem was the cheese was melty instead of liquidy.
Like pizza cheese.

So to fix my preg craving I had the boxed kind yesterday I really want to get this right lol any ideas? I made this and it was very delicious but it was stringy. Did I over heat the cheese do you think? I just used a freshly grated cheddar. Hi Jane! That is likely. The timing of this is pretty picky to make sure you get the creamy consistency. Mine turns out stringy every time and i am following your recipe exactly.
Yeah I used heavy cream and I set the timer for one minute once it started to boil. It takes a bit for it to start boiling even though I use the same pan. I just used regular cheddar since we only have one variety here in Europe. Could it be the cheese? Made this for the first time tonight after seeing your instagram post — made with broccoli and cauliflower in the same proportion as you recommended for broccoli alone.
Was brilliant! Thank you!!
