    I've been making this recipe for 20 plus years, in fact it's the most requested side for every holiday gathering. Don't substitute anything. Always use yellow American cheese (the deli can cut a block off for you then shred using the grater on your food processor). And follow the directions EXACTLY. It's easy to double, triple, or even do 5 times the amount in this recipe. Believe me, one batch isn't enough!

    The worst! This is NOT Luby's Cafeteria Mac! Gross! The directions might as well read melt a brick of nasty Velveeta in with macaroni. That is it! Bland, sticky, disgusting garbage!

    If someone makes this and it's bland, then you obviously need to start salting the water that the macaroni (or any pasta for any dish) boils in... problem solved!

    I switched out the American Cheese for Sharp Cheddar and Swiss Cheese (about 4 oz of swiss in the single recipe) for more flavor and doubled the recipe. There is no way the original recipe would have fed 8 people...even doubling it would not do that. Also, instead of holding back cheese to sprinkle on top, I browned some plain bread crumbs in butter and sprinkled it over the top. I only covered it with foil for the first 15 minutes and then uncovered it for the remainder of the time. Since I doubled it, I did have to cook the recipe for about 10 minutes longer.
