Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Baked Macaroni and Cheese created by Chef shapeweaver

This recipe came off of the box of Mueller's elbow macaroni and everyone loved it so I am putting it here for safe keeping. I used the Kraft three cheese crumbles (monterey jack, colby and cheddar) in place of sharp cheddar and I think that is what made it SO yummy! And I sprinkled sharp cheddar on top the last 10 minutes of cooking and did not use the croutons.

    I made this recipe on 2/21/11 for the " Comfort Food " Event in the Food Photo Forum, and most importantly for mine and my SO's dinner:).I made this recipe as follows,everything but the seasonings and amount of croutons were cut in half.As I was getting ready to make the cheese sauce,only 3/4 cup of cheese was added I wanted to add a bit of cheese to the top before adding the croutons.The baking time was " Right On The Mark ",but we both felt that the finished product needed a bit more of a "kick".I really liked the idea of using croutons in place of bread crumbs or crushed crackers.But thanks for taking the time to post this recipe and, " Keep Smiling :) "

    I made this for DH's dinner. He said he liked it and is looking forward to leftovers tomorrow but said this wasn't his favorite Mac & Cheese. He prefers a somewhat more saucy combo. Made for Spring 2010 PAC

    This is a simple recipe with great taste, I cut the recipe in half and I also left off the croutons. I like a cheesy crust on top! Thanks to cburke for posting, Made for PAC Spring 2010.
