      This worked very well for me. I have struggled in the past at making mac and cheese. I used a can of evaporated milk and then top off with 1% milk to make 2 cups. Unfortunately, I didn't have any breadcrumbs but I bet it is even better with them. I did add a little dry mustard, but other than that followed the recipe. This recipe is very good. Thanks! Couple of hints for those who had texture problems....make sure you let the milk, flour, butter mixture thicken before adding the cheese. Also, a hint I picked up from another recipe - remove the thicken milk, flour, butter from the heat before adding the cheese in. That way the cheese doesn't "break" and give a grainy texture.

      A thousand calories a bite! Good cold comfort food. Been making this same recipe for years and never any complaints.

      In the words of my DH, "This is the best Mac-n-cheese I've ever had!" And I couldn't agree more! I topped it with crushed club crackers combined with the butter. Thanks for this keeper!
