    I've doubled this, half to give to another family, the other half for our dinner tonight and the next few days. It will be a Custom Mac N Cheese Dinner, as it will be served with the following to use as toppings, fillings, and/or sides: Ground sweet Italian sausage; crushed potato chips; steamed broccoli.

    Superb custard-style mac and cheese. A comfort food favorite that delivered. Easy prep. Very happy.

    This is my favorite recipe for soul food mac & cheese. It's very creamy. Boy do I miss Army and Lou's.

    I only like Mac n Cheese if it's truly ridiculously decedent-at least as much calories as dessert. This one is for real. Makes me think of being back in Georgia eating real food.
