    Miss Annie's Note:

    This is a classic favorite of all of the Luby's Cafeteria customers. From the Luby's 50th Anniversary Recipe Collection Cookbook. The taste of this M&C might be a little bland, but you can always kick it up.

      WOW!!! This is a great Mac and Cheese recipe. I have never eaten at a Luby's so I can't compare but we really liked this dish. I hope to try your Dessert Cheese Ball next (it looks sinful). Yep, the Top 100 better look out because here comes TwinkDawg!!!! :-)

      This is perfect Luby's macaroni and cheese! My kids and whole family gobbled it up. All I need now is some fried okra and I'd be in Luby's heaven. Thank you so much, Miss Annie, for posting, I have a feeling this one will be requested often! By the way, the best Luby's in the world is located at 288/MacGregor in Houston. The women there are some fine Southern cooks and put all other Luby's to shame!

      Total comfort food on a cold snowy night. Thanks Paula, this is great stuff. Made as written, except I chopped up my cheese rather than shredded it (it was thick sliced deli cheese). I will make this again without changing a thing.
