    Oh my… I’m salivating and I’m not even hungry, lol. Your dish looks amazing. I have 4 year old twins who absolutely love Mac and cheese. It seems like that’s the only thing they want to eat. I’ve tried to mix it up a bit by adding some protein to the recipe. I usually use the stove top, but after reading this I’m going to try baking the Mac and cheese. Especially since the recipe is huge and can be frozen and served again. I think I’m going to add chicken and broccoli as my protein and veggie. If it turns out looking anything like yours I know my kids will eat it up. Thank you for writing this article and giving out this recipe!

    What a yummy post. I couldn’t stop salivating as I read the post. I was so impressed with the recipe and I will try it cos I love trying new cuisine and baking. I will bake it this weekend for my family. It is so yummy and healthy too. Thank you for writing this post. One question, since macaroni is a processed food won’t it damage my dieting menu?

      It could if you choose the wrong macaroni!  I use an organic variety, with no preservatives, and it’s easy to find in most grocery stores here.  Enjoy!

    Well, you definitely did not miss anything when it comes to preparing this meal. I am really glad you also gave a recommendation for food processor. Finding good food processor is not so easy these days. I will make sure I check it out on Amazon.

    I love eating baked macaroni and cheesy and I will definitely add your recipe to my list. We make our specialties a little different here in Easter Europe.

    Thank you. It was really informative.

      You are welcome.  Enjoy a very traditional American-style dish.  I will be visiting Budapest this summer, so perhaps I’ll learn some new ways to make things.

    Who doesn’t like mac and cheese as it is comfort food that all cheese lovers adore.  I have been making mac and cheese for a number of years and so are familiar with how to make it.  It is always good to see how your recipe compares to others, and I see we are pretty close.  

    As I am based in Europe I am glad my local cheese is made natural will no additional colors or preservatives.    Can any cheese be used, as  I prefer a cheese which has a bite to it?  I am glad I bumped into your website and will bookmark it for further recipes.

    Thank you

      For this dish, you want a younger, easier-melting cheese, but other than that, pick whatever you like!  I’ve used Gruyere which has a nice bite to it.
