    ErikaNY's Note:

    I found this recipe in a Taste of Home publication awhile back. I had written it out and stuck it in my 'to try' binder. A few months ago I made it for the first time... it's now my absolute favorite baked macaroni and cheese recipe! (with it tweaked for my own tastes). Enjoy!

      This was tremendous!! I like to make Mac and Cheese because it's certainly something that my kids enjoy eating, however, I always find it so bland. This wasn't! It was great!! I made a double recipe and quadrupled both the mustard (I used prepared) and the Worcestershire sauce!! AMAZING! This is going to be the recipe that I use from now on. Thanks for posting!! YUM!

      I gave this 4 stars because I made it for my 13 month old son (made a double batch). Unlike other Mac & Cheese recipies I tried, he gobbled this one up. I personally found it rather bland. My wife seemed to like it. I doubled the recipe. It took about 40 minutes to cook. The only ingredient I didn't have/add was mustard because I only have honey mustard at the moment. Come to think of it, honey mustard may have been a good addition because it could have been a bit sweeter for my tastes. But, again, it was a success because my little guy loved it with a side of brocolli ;)

      I made this for my 2 year old, we topped it with crushed goldfish crackers instead of the breadcrumbs. Very good, will keep this recipe for sure!
