    Amber Matlock's Note:

    This is a very basic macaroni and cheese that is good on it's own, or can be used as the base to many different spins.

      Almost followed your recipe, but I did end up sprinkling the finished product with some nutty, whole grain bread crumbs, & then popped in in the oven to brown the top! Definitely worked for us, & we had a satisfyingly comforting meal! [Made & reviewed for the closing of Pick A Chef event]

      This is a great base recipe. I used it to use up some milk and cheeses that needed to be used before they went bad. I made 3/4 of the recipe with 2% milk, 4 oz American cheese, and 8 oz cheddar-jack cheese. Be sure to add the cheese a little at a time, allowing each addition to melt before adding more. I added a little sprinkle of fresh ground pepper on top before digging in :) Thanks for sharing!
