This was the best Mac n cheese I’ve ever had homemade. That’s saying a lot because I’m a fat guy, so I know what I’m talking about! I used whole milk instead of skim and I used garlic salt. It came out so thick and cheesy, it stuck to the pasta very well. As the mixture of cream, flour and butter begins to bubble, give it a minute or two of whisking to make sure it gets thick then add the cheese. I will definitely be making this again!

First time homemade mac and cheese has turned out for me! Next time I’ll use normal white cheddar and not extra sharp, it was a bit strong

I absolutely love this recipe! I used to be able to find white cheddar at Costco, but they don't have it anymore. regular cheddar works just fine. This is my family's favorite mac and cheese recipe.

Everyone loved it so much we have zero leftovers. It was very easy to make and delicious. The kids are making this recipe one they want to learn by heart.

I didn't do anything this recipe said except used it as a guide for making the butter and flour. I used different cheese, a dash of Alfredo sauce, no heavy cream, more milk, different spices, but I'm sure the recipe tastes good. The base thouh is really good, and I use it as a starting point to start free-styling from!
