Georgia Macaroni With American Cheese

"This is a recipe that I got from one of my husband's Marine friend's Mother. She came up to Virginia to visit him, and she cooked everyone a Southern Feast! My husband fell in love with the macaroni and cheese, so I asked her for the recipe, and, here it is! NOTE: This recipe is really just made by feel. After reading the reviews I received I re-adjusted the amount of milk in the recipe. Feel free to add, or subtract the amounts of salt, pepper, cheese or milk! Enjoy!"

    This was easy to make and good to eat. I used 8 slices of white American cheese and it was just perfect.

    The recipe was simple and therefore decent. I had 6 slices of American Cheese which I needed to use up and therefore I looked up a recipe. I definitely needed 8, it wasn't cheesy enough. I would have given it 5 stars for an easy, kid friendly mac and cheese. Not one for an adult party. Too simple.

    You can also use 3 sharp cheddar, 3 pepper jack, and 1.5 Swiss, 1/4 cup milk and a splash of heavy cream. So good!!
