Good dish. I increased the milk, as we like a less dry mac 'n cheese. I used panko instead of regular breadcrumbs. :)

Great flavor, though it got a little dry with baking. Next time will use a little more milk or a little less macaroni. Was really craving macaroni and cheese and this hit the spot, thank you!
