Reviews

  1. It was good. I like the Swiss mixed with cheddar. The added breadcrumbs gave it an extra crunch. I did add a bit of ham.

  2. I did a swiss cheese mix of Grueyere, emmentaller, frumunda, and havarti. Its creamier, more pungent and coats the noodles better

  3. I double the amount of cheddar cheese and add 2 cups of pepper jack. It tastes so good that way. definitely my favorite mac n cheese recipe.
