Reviews for Baked Mac & Cheese
"Didn't love it. Maybe I needed to cook the sauce a little longer before combining the sauce with the noodles, but it was grainy and runny. I've made that sauce before as a gravy many a times, and it's never tasted grainy. Maybe it was the cheddar cheese? Who knows? But I'll keep looking for that Homemade Mac n' Cheese recipe that I remembered eating as a kid!"
"A good little mac & cheese recipe that lends itself to lots of variations. Really easy to mix up and great flavor."
"It was okay. The flavor was kind of flat and leftovers were pretty sticky. I may make a variation of this to add more flavor."
"Had a good texture and taste. Simple to make. Will definitely made this again."
