Wow! This dish is yummy. I made it tonight and my family of 5 loved it, and with leftovers for tomorrow:) I did add 2-3 cups broccoli (boiled with noodles the last 3 minutes to soften) to make up for all that butter lol. This is definitely a keeper.
YUM! Husband LOVED this dish! Very good with the sharp cheddar. Instructions need a bit of editing. The steps should be separated since there are several steps in each and I couldn't tell if the author wanted the bread crumbs browned or was just referring to the onions. This recipe is the ultimate in comfort food (just don't look at the nutrition facts)!
Terrific recipe! I needed a recipe to use up the Christmas ham- this one rocked!. The flavors are well balanced. the sauce is creamy enough to stand up to reheating and not dry out. My husband and son did not the leftovers age in the back of the frig-they were gone!
I made this with just a few changes - I used skim milk instead of whole and left out the dry mustard. It was very moist and delicious! It makes a VERY generous 9 x 13 pan, so if you are cooking for a smaller family, you could easily divide this recipe and freeze half. My only hesitation in making it was the daunting amount of butter, but who eats mac and cheese for the health of it, right?! Thanks for sharing - this one goes into the recipe box!
This casserole was so VERY yummy! The men ate and ate until they were stuffed...and wanted more! (: Thanks for posting this delightful recipe.
