Reviews for Mac 'n' Cheese for a Bunch
Sort By :
I thought this was quite one-note (had very little depth of flavor). Definitely needs both salt and pepper. I'm thinking using 2 or even 3 kinds of cheese would also help - not sure which ones, though. An average-tasting mac'n'cheese (hence the three stars) I probably won't make again.
This is so delicious! The only thing I change is the bread crumbs. I use crushed Ritz crackers instead.
