    KimmieCat's Note:

    This is a family recipe, and an all time favorite of mine. Some people like to substitute cheddar cheese, but I don't like it myself. For me it's American cheese or no Mac & Cheese. The amount of cheese is an estimate, I just grate enough until I think it is cheesy enough. Blocks of American cheese is hard to find for me, so I've used sliced American cheese and have not had a problem. I hope you enjoy!

      I made a scaled back amount for this recipe, for two. I used Boar's Head White American Cheese, that I shredded and also sharp cheddar cheese, in equal amounts. The only other change I made, was to use egg beaters, to fit diet, and then baked as instructed. After the bake time was up, it was still way too runny/too much liquid, so I put it bake in for a longer time. I am not giving a star rating, as my changes may have changed the recipe too much. The end result was a kind of curdled mess of cheese and noodles. So I am also wondering if the the hunk of American cheese they gave me at the deli was old, as I know the shredded cheddar was good, as I have used it in recent recipes??? Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Rookie Recipe Tag Game.
