Reviews for Buttermilk Mac 'n' Cheese
"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."
"OMG, I LOVE this recipe!!! :)"
"easy to make, more like a custard/souffle than traditional mac 'n' cheese. very rich so a little goes a long way."
"I grew up on baked mac-n-cheese, so when I ran across this recipe I was excited. It did not disappoint."
"Love this recipe!!! I make it often."
"friends loved it"
"best mac and cheese i ever made"
"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."
"Wonder how it would be to replace elbow mac with potatoes"
". This is my new favorite recipe. The only thing i added was a tablespoon of flour, and the result was awesome."
"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!"
