    Lainey6605's Note:

    I have another version of Skillet Macaroni and Cheese posted, but this one is different with the cheeses it includes and several other ingredients. In addition, it adds a bit of heat with the hot sauce. This recipe calls for homemade bread crumbs. To make them, pulse 2 slices of hearty white sandwich bread in a food processor until coarsely ground. The recipe is from Cook's Country.

      This is a great, one-pan easy homemade mac-n-cheese! The hot sauce is a necessary addition - didn't add any heat, just a nice rich flavor. I only added 4 cups of cheese (2 of each kind) and it was plenty creamy and cheesey. Thanks for posting this great recipe!

      My boyfriend only likes kraft macaroni & cheese and he actually liked this. I thought it was easy to make and very good. The hot sauce didn't make it hot at all, but added a nice flavor. I left off the bread crumb topping because we don't really like cru nchy with our mac and cheese. Will make again for sure. Thanks for posting

      Such a simple way to make mac and cheese-I loved the fact that it was all in one pot! I used low fat evap milk and cheeses,and also skipped the breadcrumbs. A tasty and easy meal-thanks Lainey.
