"While melting the butter I added 1/2 onion diced and 4 oz. chopped green chilies. Everyone loved this recipe."

"I gave this recipe 2 stars only because it had decent flavor. Other than that I would say this is definitely more of egg dish than anything. It was not creamy and when I took it out of the oven and stirred it I immediately was disappointed and started to look for a last minute ditch to make for my family. I will not be making this egg and noodle cheese dish again."

"This tasted pretty good, but both my husband and myself were violently ill after eating it. I don't know if it was bad eggs, cheese, milk, or the combination of ingredients that didn't agree with us. I don't intend to find out by making it again...lol"

"I will try this again; however, because I added some flour as was suggested by a reviewer, it was very dense - not creamy at all. Next time I will not use flour, and possibly will use fewer eggs as another suggested? I love buttermilk, so I want this to be my go-to recipe for mac 'n cheese!"

"I love this recipe, but I made some major modifications to it. I'd never used more than 1 egg in any mac and cheese recipe before and the macaroni/egg ratio seemed low so I doubled the macaroni. Also, I love caramelized onions in mac and cheese along with panko bread crumbs so I added both. I also cut out a quarter the amount of butter and voila! Best ever!"

"I agree that this is a custard-like recipe. However, it has great flavor if you use a nice sharp cheddar cheese."

"This had the texture of and tasted more like an egg casserole. I even increased the amount of macaroni. It was spongy, not creamy. I would not make this recipe again."

"This is a deliciously different mac and cheese - more like a custard than a traditional recipe. I made it for my son's birthday party and it received rave reviews!"
