"Fantastic, one of the best Mac n Cheese recipes out there. I use any 3 cheeses that I have around and it's still amazing. Only thing I add for personal preference is mustard powder."

"I have made this twice & it's definitely a crowd pleaser! I double the recipe & mix the milk, sour cream, & cheeses in the crock pot to allow cheese to melt instead of using a pan. Easier & less clean up"

"Please clarify cheese measurements. 1 cup is not 4oz but 8 oz. I would think it would make a difference in the recipe and also in the Nutritional Facts. Thank you"
